Don't know if this is useful, but it took me a while to figure it out. Thanks to user k1l from IRC channel. In order to force your machine (ubuntu, powerpc, yaboot) to boot to shell mode and not gui:

1. Enter in terminal:

sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target

2. Reboot

Voila !

If you need to reverse this:

1. Enter in terminal:

sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target

2. Reboot.

Thanks k1l !!

Hi All,

Lubuntu and ubuntu MATE have stopped the building of the daily build ISOs for PowerPC but I was able to upgrade ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC today.

Links:


I do a lot of advertising for the PowerPC platform on the ubuntu MATE google+ and Facebook page. I hope I can postpone the dropping of ubuntu MATE PowerPC.


I will update my installed development version of ubuntu MATE 17.04 as long as possible. After that I will try to release an unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 USB img with the latest Firefox, Thunderbird, and some nice wallpapers for the X5000 and X1000. I will use the name "MATE PowerPC Remix 2017" for the unofficial ubuntu MATE 17.04 PowerPC.

Cheers,
Christian

The developers of Lubuntu wants to remove the last PowerPC daily build in a few days.

Lubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) PowerPC Daily Build ISOs to No Longer Be Produced

I downloaded the last ISOs and uploaded them to my web space yesterday.

Downloads:

ubuntu_MATE_17.04_2017-02-09-powerpc.iso
Lubuntu_17.04_2017-02-08-powerpc.iso

The daily build ISO for the Ubuntu Server 17.04 PowerPC is still available. (zesty-server-powerpc.iso 2017-02-13 06:49 695M)

Hi All,

I released the first test version of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 today.

New:

  • Some new wallpapers
  • Thunderbird 45.6.0
  • Firefox 50.1.0
  • Mesa 17.0.0
  • Many updates from ubuntu MATE 17.04

Download: MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017_0.1.img.tar.bz2

Instructions for booting the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 from a USB flash drive

Download and unpack the file and copy it with the command dd to a USB flash drive. For my USB flash drive (/dev/sdd):

Code: Select all
sudo dd if=MATE_PowerPC_Remix_2017_0.1.img of=/dev/sdd


X1000

Code: Select all
setenv bootargs "root=/dev/sdd2 rootdelay=5"


Code: Select all
boot -elf -noints -fatfs usbdisk0:vmlinux-4.9


X5000

Code: Select all
setenv bootargs root=/dev/sdd2 rootdelay=5 mem=3500M radeon.pcie_gen2=1


Code: Select all
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-4.9


Code: Select all
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus.dtb


Code: Select all
bootm 1000000 - 1c00000


The login details are as follows:

Username of root has the password amigaone

Username of amigaone has the password amigaone

You can boot with the kernel 4.10 as well. I would recommend you to use a fast USB flash drive. For example: SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive.

Please test it.

Cheers,
Christian

If Xorg doesn't work with your SI Radeon graphics card, please replace the radeon video driver with the fbdev driver in the xorg.conf (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) on your USB flash drive.

I was able to boot the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 with using the label AMIGAONE with the new stable longterm kernel 4.9.10 and with the initrd.img-4.9.10 from the USB flash drive.

The best thing with using the label is, that you don't need to know the /dev location of your USB flash drive. ;-)

  1. Code: Select all
    ramdisk -z -addr=0x2400000 -fatfs usbdisk0:initrd.img-4.9.10
  2. Code: Select all
    setenv bootargs "root=LABEL=AMIGAONE"
  3. Code: Select all
    boot -elf -noints -fatfs usbdisk0:vmlinux-4.9

Please note: CFE firmware does not recognise USB devices on power-up unless they are connected to the first USB port which is reserved for the keyboard. Unless you have a USB hub connected to the first port which allows you to connect both the keyboard and USB disk, you will need to insert the USB disk AFTER you have entered CFE.

I had some problems getting it succeeded. I was forced to format the fat part. and copy the kernel into it.
It goes very slowly with me but it's probably my usbdisk there is slow.

Hi Musa,

Many thanks for testing! :-) Yes, I think your USB flash drive is too slow. There are big performance differences between USB2 flash drives.

Christian
