Hi All,

I was able to upgrade my Fedora 25 Server PPC64 to version 26 today with the following commands:

Code: Select all
sudo dnf upgrade --refresh


Code: Select all
sudo dnf install dnf-plugin-system-upgrade


Code: Select all
sudo dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=26


Output:

Code: Select all
Fedora 26 - ppc64 - Updates 100% [===================================================] 1.5 MB/s | 12 MB 00:00
Fedora 26 - ppc64 [===================================================] 1.5 MB/s | 47 MB 00:30
Last medadata expiration check: ...........


Code: Select all
sudo dnf system-upgrade reboot


Output after the reboot:

Code: Select all
Starting system upgrade. This will take a while.


After the update I tested it for a while. Sound and 3D acceleration works. I tested it with Compiz, Neverball, and Glxgears. Network access also works without any problems. Unfortunately Firefox doesn't work and Midori has problems with wrong colors.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

There are some problems with PolicyKit1. The libmozjs-17.0.so is responsible for the PolicyKit1 issues. Alex patched the libmozjs-17.0.so. Fedora 26 works really better with Alex's patched libmozjs-17.0.so.

Download: libmozjs-17.0.so

Installation:

Code: Select all
# mv /usr/lib64/libmozjs-17.0.so /usr/lib64/libmozjs-17.0.so.bak


Code: Select all
# cp libmozjs-17.0.so /usr/lib64


Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

I created with dd an img of my fedora 26 Server PPC64 installation today.

Be aware, that fedora is experimental and isn't supported. fedora 26 is alpha software! It's only for testing and tinkering!

Download: fedora26.img.gz

I suggest to download the fedora 26 img with a right click on the link and then with the menu point "Save target as" or something like that.

Please note: There isn't a graphical login. You have to login via a console (virtual terminal). After that you can start Xorg with startx.

Users:

root (password "amigaone")
amigaone (password "amigaone")

BTW, I created a small fedora download webpage today: http://www.supertuxkart-amiga.de/amiga/fedora.html

Hi All,

If you want a graphical login then please try the command sudo systemctl isolate graphical.target. You change to the graphical runlevel with this command. In lightdm you can choose one of some desktops and login. If it works then you can set up it as the default runlevel with sudo systemctl set-default graphical.target. After that please reboot for testing.

Thanks,
Christian

Hi.
I upgrade Fedora25 with your Fedora26.img and have a problem that Xorg now will not work.
Only fbdev works now. Teseted with latest kernel and with 4.9.
Downgrade Xorg-server to 25 but no luck.

AmigaOneX1000 with radeonhd6450.

Hi TearsOfMe,

Have you seen any error messages? Did you start Xorg with 'startx'?

I wish you happy holidays and a happy new year.

Cheers,

Added screenshot. Used startx. Xorg -configure give me the same seg fault error.
