Fedora 26 Server PPC64

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")

There is a Fedora 25 -image on that site... Does it work with X5000? How should it be installed and run? Is it a 'full disk' image or an ordinary partition image?

Hi Roland,

It’s a partition image. I don’t know if it works on a X5000.

Further information about Fedora 25

I installed and tested it on X5000 with kernel 4.9.60... Loaded very quickly and worked ok for me!-)

It gave the impression of an usable distro, at least compared to Fedora 26 and OpenSuse Tumbleweed which are very slow to load and indeed still 'alfa'. Had you already installed some updates to this Fed25 image? Would it be possible somehow to 'automate' the login and loading of desktop?

One thing which I did not yet find in it: how to choose the keyboard layout?

Yes, I successfully installed some updates on Fedora25 last year.

sudo systemctl --force enable lightdm.service

I successfully installed on my X5000 and played around a fair bit. Getting used the the package manager is a pain but getting there. There doesn't appear to be such a wide selection of software than available for deb based distros but it seems quite stable.

Thanks for the tip... I tested it, and it run without error messages, but did not have any effect. Booting still stops at the login prompt.

I'am not familiar how the final steps of Linux boot work, but would it be possible to simply add to the end of the ""startup-sequence"" (or whatever it is called in Linux!) commands like "wait until the 'login prompt' appears on screen", "input 'amigaone''", "wait until the 'password prompt' appears" "input 'amigaone''", "wait until the 'user@localhost' prompt appears", "input StartX" ?

The exact formulation would be of course different, but you probably get the idea...

With AmigaOs that would be quite simple, if I remember correctly some scripts I have seen earlier.

Roland,

Please post the output of sudo systemctl get-default. After that 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
