Today I updated my Fedora 25 PPC64 Server. It was a big update. New Firefox, new Mesa etc etc.

Image

The userland of Fedora is 64-bit. It's a full 64-bit system. It works on the X5000 and X1000 but be aware, that Fedora is experimental and isn't supported. Fedora for the X1000 and X5000 is alpha software! It's only for testing and tinkering!

Hi Musa,

You can only install Fedora with an installed Linux distribution or with a live DVD. I would recommend you to use the stable longterm kernel 4.9 or you can test it with some 4.10 test kernels.

Here are the instructions:

Download: fedora25.img.gz

I suggest to download Fedora 25 with a right click on the link and then with the menu point "Save target as" or something like this.

Extract the image with:

Code: Select all
gunzip fedora25.img.gz


Please mount the image with the following command as root:

Code: Select all
mount  -o loop -t ext4 fedora25.img /mnt


Code: Select all
cd /mnt


With the following command you can copy the whole img to an empty partition as root:

Code: Select all
rsync --stats --progress --numeric-ids -axAhHSP <in the mounted img> <new empty partition>


For example:

Code: Select all
rsync --stats --progress --numeric-ids -axAhHSP . /media/christian/c87fa493-6827-4072-af93-7175972daf64


After that, it's important to edit /etc/fstab in Fedora's new partition with the correct root partition id.

Users:

amigaone with password amigaone
root with password amigaone

If you want to use X11 then type startx.

The standard desktop for root is MATE and the standard desktop for the user amigaone is LXDE. If you login as root then you can also type lightdm for using a display manager. With lightdm you have the possibility to login as root or amigaone to the MATE, LXDE and Xfce desktop. If X11 doesn't work then you can edit the xorg.conf in the directory /etc/X11 with the correct values.

Cheers,
Christian

After update fedora I get this error when trying to start yum : Failed to activate service 'org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1': timed out (service_start_timeout=25000ms) (20)
and then: DNF Dbus backend is not responding
Yum Extender will exit .
Do you have a solution to that Christian?
Thanks

I don't have this issue. Please try "dnf reinstall polkit" but maybe you have bad luck that dnf doesn't work anymore.

Thank Cristian. If I dont upgrade I dont get this error so I think I start again and this time i dont upgrade. All program as gimp, inscape, libre office and grams is working ok without upgrading . I think I try that.
Thanks again

Yes, that's a good idea. Maybe the upgrade works again in few weeks.

If I did not upgrade package crypto policies, it is possible for me to upgrade fedora without fedora afterwards fails. I had to install firefox 50.1.0 separate from the rpm package. Also, I have changed the start to graphical login. I am very positively surprised by the possibilities in Fedora.
