Hi All,

If you want to use the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with the kernel 4.13 then please install the old Mesa version 17.0.1.

Download: Mesa-17.0.1-MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017.tar.bz2

Installation instructions:

Please boot the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with an older kernel like 4.9, 4.10, 4.11, or 4.12. After that, please install the Mesa version 17.0.1 with the following commands.

Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i libgl1-mesa-dri_17.0.1-1ubuntu1_powerpc.deb


Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i libgl1-mesa-glx_17.0.1-1ubuntu1_powerpc.deb


Afterwards, please reboot your X1000 with the kernel 4.13.

Cheers,
Christian

Additionally I added MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator) to the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 today.

Any other wishes?

Hi All,

Canonical has recently released the final ISO images of the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) [1]. Unfortunately Canonical has removed the PowerPC architecture. Consequently Canonical will not releasing PowerPC images anymore. Ubuntu MATE 16.04 will continue to support 32-bit PowerPC until 2019 and Canonical will offer security updates for the version 16.04 until 2021. The latest LTS release is 16.04.3 [2]. Fortunately we have a fork of ubuntu MATE 17.04, which I have updated and released as the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017. Today, I released the version 0.8 of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017.

New:

  • Some new wallpapers
  • Casey's wallpapers added (Thanks to Casey)
  • Mesa updated to 17.2.1
  • Firefox ESR updated to 52.4.0
  • Thunderbird updated to 52.2.1
  • Qmmp 1.1.3 with Winamp 5 skin added
  • PCSX-Reloaded 1.9.94-2 added
  • MAME 0.182-1 added
  • Samba 4.5.4 added (Thanks to Musa)

Download Links:

MD5 Checksum: ce85adc88b7b94d2e67d10a9bf192385

Which apps shall I add to the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 version 0.9?

I will add unrar and Yabause to the version 0.9 and I will completely rebrand the distribution (Thanks to Casey). [3]
