What's missing in this picture

(Talospace - 18.05.2019, 01:48) I've got the case (an inexpensive mATX Silverstone SST-ML03B), I've got the memory (16GB). The PSU, optical drive, wireless keyboard and WiFi should arrive next week. Now, what am I missing? Think think think! Since the whole idea is a POWER9 system for the more price-sensitive, the trimmings cost about $500 on Amazon (minus tax and shipping) and could probably be found elsewhere for less. I also got in on the 4-core $999 Blackbird bundle special price, so with the 2U HSF and tooling that was $1090 before tax and shipping (now it would

ZombieLoad does not affect POWER9

(Talospace - 15.05.2019, 01:40) If it's Tuesday, there must be yet another speculative execution attack debuting with a funny name and this Tuesday's entry is ZombieLoad. ZombieLoad works on the same conceptual basis of observable speculation flaws to exfiltrate data but implements it with a new class of Intel-specific side-channel attacks utilizing a technique the investigators termed MDS, or microarchitectural data sampling. While Spectre and Meltdown attack at the cache level, ZombieLoad targets Intel HyperThreading (HT), the company's implementation of symmetric multithreading, by trying to snoop on the processor's line fill buffers (LFBs) used to load the L1 cache itself. In this case, side-channel leakages of data are possible if the malicious process triggers certain specific and ultimately invalid loads from memory -- hence the nickname -- that require microcode a

ZombieLoad doesn't affect Power Macs

(TenFourFox Development - 15.05.2019, 00:54) The latest in the continued death march of speculative execution attacks is ZombieLoad (see our previous analysis of Spectre and Meltdown on Power Macs). ZombieLoad uses the same types of observable speculation flaws to exfiltrate data but bases it on a new class of Intel-specific side-channel attacks utilizing a technique the investigators termed MDS, or microarchitectural data sampling. While Spectre and Meltdown attack at the cache level, ZombieLoad targets Intel HyperThreading (HT), the company's implementation of symmetric multithreading, by trying to snoop on the processor's line fill buffers (LFBs) used to load the L1 cache itself. In this case, side-channel leakages of data are possible if the malicious process triggers certain specific and ultimately invalid loads from memory -- hence the nickname -- that require microcode assistance from the CPU; these have side

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.0

(Talospace - 08.05.2019, 05:23) The newly Big Blue Red Hat released Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 8.0 today, based on Fedora 28. Because it's based on F28, this release of RHEL should "just work" on the Talos II (F28 was the first Fedora to support it), and mostly whatever applies to F28 applies to RHEL 8, including GNOME 3.28, Wayland-by-default and other changes. Although both big and little endian are apparently supported on the trial evaluation images,

DAWR YOLO mode coming to kernel 5.2

(Talospace - 06.05.2019, 06:09) Thanks to Michael Neuling at OzLabs who gave me the heads up and wrote up the patch. One of my pain points doing development on the POWER9 is that hardware watchpoints are disabled at the kernel level. This is because the CPU will checkstop if a watchpoint is set on cache-inhibited memory such as devices, and if a checkstop occurs will invariably bring the system down. The formal name for the special purpose register governing this feature (recall that Power ISA has three classes of registers, i.e., general purpose, floating point and special purpose) is the Data Access Watchpoint Register, or DAWR. There is no software workaround for this problem, and because a malicious local user could bring the system down without privileg

TenFourFox not affected by the addon apocalypse

(TenFourFox Development - 04.05.2019, 07:01) Tonight's Firefox add-on apocalypse, traced to a mistakenly expired intermediate signing certificate, is currently roiling Firefox users worldwide. It bit me on my Talos II, which really cheesed me off because it tanked all my carefully constructed site containers. (And that's an official Mozilla addon!) This brief post is just to reassure you that TenFourFox is unaffected -- I disagreed with signature enforcement on add-ons from the beginning and explicitly disabled it.

A friendly FPGA reminder

(Talospace - 02.05.2019, 22:55) Raptor is seeking beta testers for the upcoming 2.00 Talos II firmware, including a tease for users of the built-in VGA port. This brings up a question: flashing the PNOR and BMC is relatively straightforward (I've done it from my Quad G5), but flashing the FPGA requires a programmer and not all of us are handy with those -- or even have one. Do we need to do that too to try the beta? Fortunately, Raptor's great support staff responded to my query and said (emphasis mine), "The FPGA firmware is largely independent of the BMC and PNOR. FPGA updates are only released to improve compatibility with PSUs and chassis components encountered in the wild, and at no point will a BMC nor PNOR update be released that is incompatible with the earliest FPGA revisions." That's very reassuring since I have

Fedora 30 released (and a big Void)

(Talospace - 01.05.2019, 08:48) Not to be outdone by the release of Ubuntu 19.04, Fedora 30 has been released as well. We pay special attention to Fedora here at Talospace since this Talos II runs F29. As with our mini-review of F29, we will be doing a similar mini-review of F30 after a couple weeks when the package repositories should be caught up for ppc64le. Chief amongst the updates is GNOME 3.32, gcc 9, bash 5.0 and PHP 7.3; here is the full change set. One disappointment is that 128-bit long doubles did not make this release as previously scheduled and has been held over to F31, which affects

Jetlagged greetings from a lovely trip now back at Floodgap Orbiting HQ in sunny southern California (this post partially composed on Air New Zealand's in-flight WiFi). Many thanks to Hugh Blemings of OpenPOWER whom I met at SCaLE 17x and suggested, since I was going to be visiting family in Australia and having a holiday in Canberra, that I head by IBM OzLabs (where he used to be manager).

Another interesting TenFourFox downstream

(TenFourFox Development - 26.04.2019, 09:49) Because we're one of the few older forks of Firefox to still backport security updates, TenFourFox code turns up in surprising places sometimes. I've known about roytam's various Pale Moon and Mozilla builds; the patches are used in both the rebuilds of Pale Moon 27 and 28 and his own fork of 45ESR. Arctic Fox, which is a Pale Moon 27 (descended from Firefox 38, with patches) rebuild for Snow Leopard and PowerPC Linux, also uses TenFourFox security patches as well as some of our OS X platform code. Recently I was also informed of a new place TenFourFox code has turned up: OS/2. There's no Rust for OS/2, so they're in the same boat that PowerPC OS X is, and it doesn't look like 52ESR was ever successfully ported to OS/2 either; indeed, the last "official" Firefox I can find

TenFourFox FPR14b1 available (now with H.264 video)

(TenFourFox Development - 01.04.2019, 05:50) TenFourFox Feature Parity Release 14 beta 1 is now available (downloads, hashes, release notes). I had originally plotted three main features for this release, but getting the urgent FPR13 SPR1 set me back a few days with confidence testing and rebuilds and I have business trips and some vacation time coming up, so I jettisoned the riskiest of the three features (a set of JavaScript updates and a ugly hack to get Github and other sites working fully again) and concentrated on the other two. I'll be looking at that again for FPR15, so more on that later. Before we get to the marquee features, though, there are two changes which you may not immediately notice. The first is a mitigation for a long-standing issue where some malicious sites keep popping up authentication modals us

Deal With Loud Fans - Apple Service Diagnostic 2.6.3

(G5 Center - 26.03.2019, 03:25) Working on old computers, of any kind really, is a form of prayer for me. That may sound silly, but I enjoy cleaning them out, tinkering, trying new things, and seeing what happens. Often, I talk to myself or whatever higher being happens to be listening in frustration or wild hope. In the last couple of weeks, I upgraded an old Dell tower from an i3 to i5 for cheap, fixed up a 2006 Mac Pro (1,1) for fairly cheap, and dusted out my ol' G5. In the process of working on my G5 and moving it to a new location with a better monitor (as I am using the Apple Cinema Display with the Mac Pro), I noticed the fans were getting loud. G5s don't apparently have any means for us end users to quiet those fans down. That could be a good thing, since these machines are hardly efficient. But when they are loud, they are loud. Enter the Apple Service Diagnostic disc 2.6.3.

TenFourFox FPR13 SPR1 available

(TenFourFox Development - 25.03.2019, 01:56) TenFourFox Feature Parity Release 13 Security Parity Release 1 ("FPR13.1") is now available and live (downloads, hashes, release notes). The Pwn2Own vulnerabilities do not work on TenFourFox in their present form (not only because we're PowerPC but also because of our hybrid-endian typed arrays and other differences), but I have determined that TenFourFox-specific variant attacks could be exploitable, so we are patched as well. This should also reduce the risk of crashes from attempts to exploit mainline x86 Firefox. Meanwhile, H.264 support for TenFourFox FPR14 appears to be sticking. Yes, folks: for the first time you can now play Vimeo and other H.264-only videos from within TenFourFox using sidecar ffmpeg

Stand by for urgent security update

(TenFourFox Development - 22.03.2019, 23:33) Pwn2Own came and went and Firefox fell with it. The __proto__ vulnerability seems exploitable in TenFourFox, though it would require a PowerPC-specific attack to be fully weaponized, and I'm currently evaluating the other bug. Builds ("FPR13 SPR1") including fixes for either or both depending on my conclusions will be issued within the next couple days.

As usual it will go live Monday evening Pacific time assuming no difficulties. I have three main updates in mind for TenFourFox FPR14: expanding FPR13's new AppleScript support to allow injecting JavaScript into pages (so that you can drive a web page by manipulating the DOM elements within it instead of having to rely on screen coordinates and sending UI events), adding Olga's ffmpeg framework to enable H.264 video support with a s

Life With a Low End iPad

(G5 Center - 15.03.2019, 02:27) One of my better purchases lately has not been an old Mac Pro (for under $30) or my fancy iPhone XR (which is a great phone) - it's been a basic 6th generation iPad for work. The iPad was on sale before Christmas at a local retailer, and I splurged for it as I needed it for both my school work, writing, and sermon prep. I really wanted an iPad Pro, but the price tag scared me off from that fancier device. In the end, the iPad has become a workhorse, not just for media consumption but for getting stuff done. Taking notes is fun with the original Apple Pencil, playing games is an option, and planning for work is a breeze. It's great to take on trips too and not have to lug my laptop around. In fact, I've been surprised at just how good it is for the price - around the $300 price point for the 128GB model. It's been a while since I've been so pleased from a purchase. But - I recognize it's not perfect for everyone. I do have a bluetooth keyboard I can throw into my bag on

XAMPP for PowerPC

(G5 Center - 02.02.2019, 04:20) If you are at all interested in hosting a simple (or complex) website or doing some experimentation from your older Mac, I do recommend grabbing the incredibly useful XAMPP to make the process a little easier. XAMPP is kind of a self-contained install of the Apache httpd server with PHP and CGI turned on, a MYSQL server, an FTP server, and some other tools and documentation. It's cool, because it comes with a little tiny app that lets you turn off the services as you see fit. You can run it when you want to try out different configurations or different websites. For Leopard, the basic Apache httpd server isn't that older than the last available XAMPP package for G5 machines. My base Leopard httpd server is 2.2.7 while the one included in the XAMPP package is 2.2.14. Still, that includes some bug fixes as well as newer versions of PHP and MySQL. If you are going to run old software, might as well run the last version of it you can find. Note: I do believe, using MacPort

Happy New Year - Broken Links

(G5 Center - 01.02.2019, 03:30) Happy New Year, fellow G5 fans! Sadly, as I look over this site, I admit that many links are now non-functional. The information here is generally still fine, but you will have to search around for working links to the apps I recommend. Some developers have likely removed older apps, even though it is handy for users of old PowerPC machines. There are some app alternative websites too, including at websites like PowerPC Software Archive. Open source apps are just a great resource in times like these, as they tend to have ready archives available for users trying to maintain ancient machines. So, hang tight. I'll be fixing links, removing some outdated software, and seeing what the future is for this website. -- Nathan
