I was fiinally able to to test MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 v. 0.9. It works nicely - thanks Christian!-)

A couple of questions...

How could I copy all Firefox settings/bookmarks from Remix 0.8 to 0.9? I was not able to find any directory labelled 'Firefox'...

Synaptic reported there are two broken packages in Remix 0.9: libsmbclient and python-samba. Are they necessarily needed, or should they be removed?

You can export the bookmarks via the menu Show your bookmarks - Show All Bookmarks - Menu Import and Backup - Backup ... - Select a backup file name and a location for saving the backup json file. Under the Remix 0.9 you can import your backup json file via the menu Show your bookmarks - Show All Bookmarks - Menu Import and Backup - Backup ... - Restore - Choose file ... - Select the location and the backup file. Choose the button Open.

You can also backup your whole Firefox configuration (including all profiles). Copy your Firefox configuration directory with the following command:

Code: Select all
cp -R /home/amigaone/.mozilla/firefox /home/amigaone/Documents/MyFirefox_backup


Under the Remix 0.9 you can restore it with the following commands:

Code: Select all
rm -rf /home/amigaone/.mozilla/firefox


Code: Select all
cp -R /home/amigaone/Documents/MyFirefox_backup /home/amigaone/.mozilla/firefox

Synaptic doesn't work anymore because there aren't any repositories available. You can install new packages with dpkg -i. You don't need to remove the packages above.

@All
BTW, I was able to boot the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 0.9 with the RC6 of kernel 4.17 in a virtual e5500 QEMU 2.12.0 machine with a VirtIO graphics card:
