Hi Christian,
Do you have 17.04 dev packages or do you build packages with a different distro?

Canonical has recently released the final ISO images of the Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) [1]. Unfortunately Canonical has removed the PowerPC architecture. Consequently Canonical will not releasing PowerPC images anymore. Ubuntu MATE 16.04 will continue to support 32-bit PowerPC until 2019 and Canonical will offer security updates for the version 16.04 until 2021. The latest LTS release is 16.04.3 [2]. Fortunately we have a fork of ubuntu MATE 17.04, which I have updated and released as the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017. Today, I released the version 0.8 of the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017.

Hi Casey,

I usually build the packages on Debian Sid PPC32.

Cheers,
Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

@xeno

There seems to be some 'broken' (or improperly installed) components in the MATE PowerPC Remix 2017 (v. 0.8)... I noticed this after I created a new user account with 'administrator' rights. The system reported about the problem after I logged in, and suggested to remove the broken packages. I let it to do that, and everything seems to be ok now. The default user account (AmigaOne) is not an 'administrator', so the problem was invisible when using that.

Maybe this could be fixed for the next version...?
