Debian Buster/Sid PPC64

Postby xeno74 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 11:16 pm

Hi All,

I created a small image of Debian Buster/Sid PPC64 today. I recommend to use it if you have any problems with Adrian's ISOs. Please increase the partition with GParted after you copied the image to an empty partition. I had to decrease the partition a little bit and after that I was able to increase the partition.

Download: debian-9.0-ppc64.img

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

First steps

  1. Configure your network device with dhclient
  2. Check the network device with ip a
  3. Update the package index with apt-get update
  4. Install Xorg with apt-get install xorg
  5. After that you could install the MATE desktop with apt-get install mate-desktop-environment-extras
  6. Then you could install a display manager for example "lightdm" with apt-get install lightdm
  7. Afterwards reboot your AmigaOne

Thank You Xeno, it works!

I install also lxde desktop and it works also (see pic).
I have one question - why do you use ext3 in your image?
I converted it to ext4, but is there some advantage of ext3 over ext4?

thanks

Hi SailorMH,

Many thanks for testing! :-) I had some problems with the ext4 image. (ext4 feature xyz isn't supported after copying it to a partition)

Therefore I created an ext3 image and this works without any problems.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi All,

The Power Progress Community has released the Firefox ESR 52.8.0 (64 bit) recompiled with gcc 7.3.0 and patched for Debian Sid ppc64. Packages are available in their repository.

Repository: https://repo.powerprogress.org/debian

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian

If someone is interested:
I tried the .iso but I could not "apt-get update" since the update stopped telling there was "NO PUBKEY AVAILABLE 06AED62430CB581C"
(maybe not the exact wording, writing from memory)

I solved the issue with:

apt-key --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 06AED62430CB581C

after that I could update and continue the installation as per post #1

Hi Amigo1,

Many thanks for the hint! Interesting that you got the key for Debian from ubuntu.com. Which Debian ISO and which kernel do you use?

I'm using kernel 4.15.14 and I did not use any other iso but the the one you linked in the first post.
1. I copied it to a 15GiB partition with

dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdY bs=64K conv=noerror,sync

2. after that, I run "check" in GParted and the size was corrected to 15GiB

3. rebooted the AmigaOne X1000 using kernel 4.15
4. proceeded as per your suggestion but adding the keyfile :)

The installation seems to proceed well, a couple of MB to go. I will report back.

FYI;

Adrian wrote:Hello!

Since powerpc is now part of Debian Ports, everyone who is running
Debian on powerpc needs to update their /etc/apt/sources.list to
be able to continue tracking unstable.

The new sources.list should look like:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main

If you want to include packages which were just built on the buildds,
use:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main

And if you use experimental, use without incoming:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main


And experimental with incoming:

# binary default
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unstable main
deb http://incoming.ports.debian.org/buildd/ unstable main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main
deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ experimental main
# source
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb-src http://incoming.debian.org/debian-buildd/ buildd-experimental main

You may have to add these lines to your /etc/apt/preferences to
avoid packages from experimental getting installed automatically:

root@sompek:~# cat /etc/apt/preferences
Package: *
Pin: release a=experimental
Pin-Priority: 1
root@sompek:~#

Let me know if you have any issues. I will update the debian-installer
images for powerpc (and all other architectures) in the following
days.

from the non-free repository. This means, if you need a package
from non-free and it's not an arch-all package (_all.deb suffix),
you will have to build that package yourself.

We might build contrib and non-free packages for Debian Ports
in the future, but I am not sure whether that's possible from
the legal point of view.
