Repository

Post by caseycullen »

I've created a software repo and uploaded a few games to it. Please test it and let me know if it works for you.

First you need to download and add the public key:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 548D45C5
Then, add the server to your sources.list:

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://ppcutopia.ddns.net/repos/apt/debian fienix main"
And update:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
The visibility in Synaptic issue has been fixed.
If you get an error saying "This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository":

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change update
Please let me know if you have any issues!

Hi Casey,

Great work! For which distributions can I use your repository?

Cheers,

I've successfully tested on MATE PowerPC Remix and Ubuntu 16.04.

Great work. I downloaded Openarena and it runs fine. Is there a list of software available?

Thanks

Hi ace,

I think you should be able to see the list in Synaptic if you sort by Origin. For now though, the available games are (comma-delimited):

Code: Select all

dnt, gigalomania, jvgs, openarena, xonotic
Also, ioquake3 and a Quake III install helper package are available if you have the Quake III Arena game data

Code: Select all

ioquake3, quake3-install-pkg
I have more games built that I will package and make available when I have time.

Christian,
Could you let the X1000 and Sam users know about the repo in case any of them would be interested to try it out? I think it should work for them as well.

Thanks!

Hi Casey,

I successfully installed some games from your new repository with ubuntu MATE 16.04.3 LTS PowerPC on my AmigaOne X1000 today. It works without any problems! Well done! :-)

I just added BRL-CAD to the ppcutopia repo. BRL-CAD is a powerful CAD system but it has a pretty steep learning-curve. There's tons of good documentation and tutorials if you're interested in learning it.

Code: Select all

apt-get install brlcad
Below is an image of BRL-CAD running on my X5000, showing the design and render of a Soviet Mil Mi-28 attack helicopter.

That just looks great!! I am looking forward to the moment my Videocard will be supported in linux as well. (R7 250)

For now its just a bummer having to choose... AmigaOS support or Linux Support... but not both :-(

Anyway! Keep up the good work!
AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE / Ubuntu Linux
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / CF HDD / RetroNET connected to the world
