Debian Buster/Sid PPC64

Postby xeno74 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 11:18 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

I uploaded the libs with fpsqrt instruction emulation support for the X5000. Please test them with Debian Buster/Sid PPC64 on your X5000.

I noticed I already had downloaded the image and even copied it to a partition, but forgot totally to test it ;)!

Booting and log-in worked ok, but when I tried to run 'dhclient' in Bash prompt I got an error message 'command not found'. Where is that program located, should I first change the default directrory...?

***
Whoops, noticed that I had logged in login as 'amigaone', not as 'root'! No wonder the dhclient was not accessible.

'Apt-get update' gave a few error messages, but did not fail totally. But 'Apt-get install xorg' failed, complaining about unmet dependencies!
Do you have to install xserver-xorg first, or some other pacakage?

I installed the package xorg first but this was last year. After that, I have always updated Debian Buster/Sid PPC64.

I tried to set up Debian Buster/Sid today, but had the same issue as Roland. It appears there are currently missing xorg dependencies. Christian could you please verify your apt sources?
