Well, this threw quite the wrench into what I had wanted to do... hummm

Consider Debian: they require one, or several buildbots to build all of their packages for ppc64be and le.
Therefore, wouldn't their access be permanent?
Or do they have their own infra by now?

Debian has a dedicated bare-metal machine.
@aer:matrix.org what is your goal?

I wanted to provide a constant build and running infrastructure for an open source project.
However, now I will just evaluate performance.
Thank you for your support.

My team has informed me that we are not currently interested in your services. Thank you for the support regardless.
Perhaps in the future.

@aer:matrix.org if you need something for Power for a bigger purpose, please send me an email at rpsene@br.ibm.com. We can talk about onbording it at IBM Cloud.

Good night.
My team informed me that it would be best for me to tell you about the project, as the possibility exists for that to develop awareness and outreach into another open source community.
I will return later to read your replies, as I know that it's late in Brazil.

Infrastructure for open source project and performance comparisons. The project is here github.com/tsweet77/repeater-max
Repeater CUDA Source Code: github.com/tsweet77/repeater-max-cuda

Repeater Nesting Utility: github.com/tsweet77/nesting-files-creation-utility

Here is a paper on it: www.academia.edu/48996313/Introducing_a_New_Programming_Object_for_All_Languages_The_Servitor

Here's its creator's academic hub: utsa.academia.edu/ThomasSweet

Another goal of this is, in Mr. Thomas Sweet's words: "to reach more parts of the open source community". Ergo, spreading awareness.

Note: I am not Mr. Thomas Sweet, I am speaking on his behalf as he told me to, as then I would control the server better (I am working alongside him).

Thank you.

We are offering the code to the open source community. You have the repos, maybe that's an implication, sorry about my bluntness.

is it possible to get more disk space, because 80 gigabytes is not enough for installing and testing IBM Maximo Visual Inspection

@jr-santos98 can you help here ^?

Hi @sergey_al_gitlab , I changed your user quotas. Check if the "minicloud.giant" flavor is available for your user.

Ubuntu 22.04 LTS To Shift Its PPC64EL Baseline To POWER9 CPUs, Dropping POWER8 🥲

hi all
guys, please , need an advice to run powerpcspe platform with QUEMU. its all ok with PPC64, but still cant run correctly powerpcspe edition. please can anyone post working cmdline parameters to run 12-14 Freebsd PPCSPE version?
laggarcia
@laggarcia:matrix.org

@STown2017: I would suggest you to ask in the FreeBSD channels at efnet... not sure if there will be too many users of FreeBSD here. I asked to some FreeBSD folks I know that are working with ppc64, but I doubt I will get an answer today.
STown2017
@STown2017
generally, i need to be able to run ANY ppc machine that supports SPE instructions extension
as i know there are e500 processors family
laggarcia
@laggarcia:matrix.org
[m]
I have to say I know nothing about SPE instruction extenstion. Everytime I hear that I remember the Cell/B.E. synergistic processors, also called SPE, but I am pretty sure this should be somehting else.
STown2017
@STown2017
please, need advice, how to correctly install FreeBSD-12.0-RELEASE-powerpc-powerpcspe-dvd1.iso with QEMU ? seems i need to make cmdline with kernel and initrd, but where to get it for qemu?
laggarcia

Hi @STown2017 I was able to briefly talk with some guys in the FreeBSD community about your previous question on powerpcspe... they didn't know the answer, but they asked in IRC (#powerpc64 channel on EFNet). They didn't get an answer yet AFACIT. I suggest you to join that IRC channel and ask directly there. The folks I talked to said that there is indeed people using powerpcspe there and this topic has been discussed more than once.
STown2017
@STown2017
thanks alot!

@STown2017: Were you able to joint he IRC channel? One of the guys I am talking to was able to boot a powerpcspe with QEMU, but there are some limitations. Instead of myself being the middle man, maybe you should reach out directly to him through IRC. What do you think?

@jr-santos98 build a newer image with the debian cloud image scripts https://wolke.linn.io/s/AKxqLySKCDfTRYY

Current debian BE images are quite old and can't be easily upgraded (due to repo gpg key change plus other issues).
I already tried rebuilding last year but there were conflicts in the debian-ports repo.

I was now able to build an up to date image again with my updated fork of the debian-cloud-images tool https://github.com/JoelLinn/debian-cloud-images .

@jr-santos98 Could you make the new image publicly available again, donwload link didn't change from last time

Junior Santos
@jr-santos98
@JoelLinn New image avaliable. Sorry for the delay. The image name is "Debian 11/sid ppc64 - BE (02/2022)".
Joel Linn
@JoelLinn
thanks no problem. everyone is able to upload their own images but its great to easily be available for the community

Is there any plan to turn power9 back on?
Junior Santos
@jr-santos98
@bencz We are finishing setting up a new network. Once this is done, the minicloud will be the next step.
Alexandre Bencz
@bencz
Nice!
Ubuntu is the first to stop supporting Power8... I have my doubts if Debian will stop supporting P8... but, we don't know... Fedora, RedHat and others, have also warned about the end of support for Power8, Ubuntu will stop supporting Power8 in July, the last update of Ubutnu no longer works on Power8
Joel Linn
@JoelLinn
debian will very likely still support is as a port
just like they do ppc64
but no official images then...
Alexandre Bencz
@bencz
IBM could give some p10 to put in the Unicamp 👀
Rafael Sene
@rpsene
@bencz P10 will be aviable in the cloud for developers at some point this year. It is hard even for us to get one :)

@adalava
Hi just to let you know I opened Unicamp-OpenPower/minicloud#40, regarding openstack ports. I recall it used to work in the past but I don't use it for a long time. Thanks!

Hi, Is the cloud down? Can reach web interface but no ssh access or web console unfortunately :/
