Thanks for releasing. I was able to boot into the image with my X5000, and it seems to run very well. Firefox 47 and 50 both run well. Firefox 47 was set to German, Firefox 50 was set to English.
I'm able to run SuperTuxKart on my X5000, and it runs very nicely. Did you recompile the game without Altivec extensions?
VLC does not work. I think Luigi said he compiled VLC from source without Altivec extensions to get it to work. I have not tried this yet. Perhaps you could incorporate VLC without Altivec?
Will there be an install script and/or a debian installer released?
Many thanks for testing the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 0.1 on your X5000.
Thanks for the hint about Firefox 47. I have to set up it to English too. It's really a surprise that SuperTuxKart runs very nicely on your X5000 because of AltiVec optimizations. I released a special version for the X5000 without any AltiVec optimizations four years ago.
Please try it.
I will add the alternative installer script to the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 and maybe a VLC without any AltiVec optimizations.
