I've created a software repo and uploaded a few games to it. Please test it and let me know if it works for you.

First you need to download and add the public key:
Code: Select all
sudo wget -O - http://ppcutopia.ddns.net/repos/apt/conf/public.gpg.key|apt-key add -

-OR-
Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 548D45C5


Then, add the server to your sources.list:
Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://ppcutopia.ddns.net/repos/apt/debian sid main"


And update:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Software:
ioquake3: ioquake3 on my repo runs on machines without Altivec. The version on Debian and Ubuntu repos does not detect altivec at runtime, and so it will not work on X5000.
OpenArena: based on ioquake3; the version on my repo should work on X5000.
I've also built several games that are not available on Debian or Ubuntu repos, such as dnt, Gigalomania, jvgs, and Xonotic, in addition to a couple game developer tools (NetRadiant and gmqcc).

Please let me know if you have any issues!

Hi Casey,

Great work! For which distributions can I use your repository?

Cheers,
Christian

I've successfully tested on MATE PowerPC Remix and Ubuntu 16.04.

Great work. I downloaded Openarena and it runs fine. Is there a list of software available?

Thanks

Hi ace,

I think you should be able to see the list in Synaptic if you sort by Origin. For now though, the available games are (comma-delimited):
Code: Select all
dnt, gigalomania, jvgs, openarena, xonotic

Also, ioquake3 and a Quake III install helper package are available if you have the Quake III Arena game data
Code: Select all
ioquake3, quake3-install-pkg

I have more games built that I will package and make available when I have time.

Christian,
Could you let the X1000 and Sam users know about the repo in case any of them would be interested to try it out? I think it should work for them as well.

Thanks!

Hi Casey,

I successfully installed some games from your new repository with ubuntu MATE 16.04.3 LTS PowerPC on my AmigaOne X1000 today. It works without any problems! Well done! :-)

I just added BRL-CAD to the ppcutopia repo. BRL-CAD is a powerful CAD system but it has a pretty steep learning-curve. There's tons of good documentation and tutorials if you're interested in learning it.
Code: Select all
apt-get install brlcad

Below is an image of BRL-CAD running on my X5000, showing the design and render of a Soviet Mil Mi-28 attack helicopter.

That just looks great!! I am looking forward to the moment my Videocard will be supported in linux as well. (R7 250)

For now its just a bummer having to choose... AmigaOS support or Linux Support... but not both :-(

Anyway! Keep up the good work!
