thanks to the work the community does on porting the Chromium browser
to ppc64le, we can have also the qt5-qtwebengine library available.
Currently there are ~20 packages that are excluded on ppc64le due the
unavailability of the webengine.
My "talos" COPR repository  contains now the main qt5-qtwebengine
package, pyqtwebengine bindings for Python and also the qmapshack app.
Building calibre fails in a test, investigating now. If there are other
apps you would like to be made available, let me know.
The plan is to merge the ppc64le support into the official Fedora rpms,
but it can take some time and depends on support from the maintainers of
the QT stack.
Good morning Dan
I can confirm that by eliminating PipeWire and reinstalling Pulse-audio,
the system returns to work in a regular and perfect way. I therefore
confirm that the bug is specific to Pipewire and you have to work on it,
you can confirm everything to the developers. For specific information I
remember that I use a dedicated sound card that has always been
supported by Linux, namely the RME HDSPE-AIO. Having said that I hope
that you will also work to improve the management of Gnome 40 which
currently on Power architecture is really horrendous.
Thanks for everything
Hi Dan, no I haven't tried it because I didn't know about the procedure, I hadn't read that part.
I found the command to return to Pulse Audio:
$ sudo dnf swap --allowerasing pipewire-pulseaudio pulseaudio
I'll try and let you know so we can actually see if that's the problem. Thanks, I'll write to you as soon as I've done the test.
Hi Dan, sorry for the delay in answering, yes I can tell you that the card has always worked regularly on all the Fedora that I have used up to now ie 31, 32, and 33, without any kind of problem. Similarly it works on all versions I've tried of Debian and Ubuntu without Pulse Audio. So I think so, since you switched to Pipewere see, the card has stopped working and so I'm sure the problem lies in the new Pipewere sound system ... Can you do something? I think it will be difficult to receive numerous reports as this card is very expensive and little used in general and that is why I report the anomaly because I am afraid that if it is not solved immediately, it will end up not working anymore in any distro being that all sooner or later they will pass on Pipewere ...
