Re: Debian 8 on Late 2005 G5, Graphics Issues

Hi Milan,

I have submitted the following Debian bugs:

Bug#790690: linux-image-3.16.0-4​-powerpc64: powerpc64 & 64Kb kernel pagesize not working with nouveau
Bug#790694: linux-image-3.16.0-4​-powerpc64: nouveau driver and msi interrupts

Regarding the issue mentioned with vanilla 4.0.7 kernel and nouveau not detecting the NVidia DCB block in the openfirmware FCODE rom, where should I report this?

Sorry, I haven't reported a bug for over 10 years. Forgive me!

Could you please submit a bug report[0] and explain the problem. If
Debian kernel maintainers are not aware of this problem we will have the
same issue in the next Debian release. They might be able to fix it for
Debian 8.2.
