GNU/Linux

Distribution Version Architecture Reported by Notes
Debian 10 (2018-05-28 weekly DVD ISO) ppc64le JeremyRand Seems to work fine. KDE crashes occasionally, but that might be unrelated to running it on POWER9. Works fine as a KVM host via virt-manager (tested with Debian 10 as the guest).
9 ppc64le nashimus Requires 4.16 or newer kernel. Installed Debian testing net install, set apt sources to Debian stable and downgraded, keeping 4.16 kernel. Most VMs failed to boot before updating qemu to 2.12.0.
Fedora 28 ppc64le Sharkcz only bare metal verified for now
28 ppc64 Sharkcz test entry
Gentoo n/a ppc64le luke-jr Once installed, works fine.
17.0 ppc64 MarcusC XFCE4 and virt-manager verified
