It is NOT a complaint :-)

Just curious to why 3D acceleration is not supported on Radeon SI graphics cards on PPC linux. And if there are any signs that this will happend down the road.

It has maybe been covered before and in this case sorry in advance!

Thank you in advance!

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

So in short it is caused by primarly this:

Glamor Crashes on big endian Hardware https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99859

The thread is from 2017 and no solution is in sight .... as far as I can read on a quick glance.

Ok. Thank you for the reply :-). I am keeping my fingers crossed for a solution.

And thank you for all your work for PPC linux.
