Hi All,

I tested the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 version 0.9 with the kernel 5.9-rc4 in a virtual e5500 QEMU machine today.

First, I had to boot the img with a serial console output (serial stdio). After that I downloaded the Xorg fbdev xserver with the following command in this serial console.

Code: Select all

wget http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-fbdev/xserver-xorg-video-fbdev_0.4.4-1build5_powerpc.deb
Then I installed this xserver with the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i xserver-xorg-video-fbdev_0.4.4-1build5_powerpc.deb
Then I renamed the xorg.conf to xorg.conf.bak in the directory /etc/X11.

After rebooting the virtual e5500 machine, Xorg works with the VirtIO-GPU without any problems.

I will release a new img with the Xorg fbdev xserver and with the new Arctic Fox in the next weeks.

Cheers,
Christian

If you can't change to a higher screen resolution then delete the xorg.conf in /etc/X11 and try it again.
