OpenSUSE Tumbleweed

Was taking a look at various distros and it looks like OpenSUSE Tubleweed (which is a rolling release) is available for both PPC64 and PPC64le.

Was taking a look at various distros and it looks like OpenSUSE Tubleweed (which is a rolling release) is available for both PPC64 and PPC64le.

Tested on x64 and x1000.

On PA Semi 4GB RadeonHD 6870 it was usable but unstable.

I believe recent updates are LE only, no Altivec (IBM POWER made for), just like with Debian and many other distros.

Once laptop goes live I advise sending boards to Linux teams so maybe PPC64BE+Altivec will be supported again.

On 2xi3 2Ghz 4GB IntelHD 4000 it is stable and usable, it shows PPC distros
need just a bit more stable kernels and tested builds.

+ Constant Update (Rolling Release)
+ Comes with MATE
+ Built on OpenSUSE
- Not the fastest distro

Leap also exists for PPC, but was unable to make it work with kinky x1000 kernel
trickery.

Leap is also openSUSE based, but stable and very complete.

It is "new OpenSUSE", but PPC64LE only
