2021-05-26, 14:10–14:40 (UTC), Presentation Room

An overview of the supported 64-bit PowerPC targets (both hardware and emulation). The focus will be on the more recent families, mostly on the IBM POWER9.


The Yocto Project was lacking the QEMU PPC64 target for some time. One was added recently. This talk will present how to use the QEMU PPC64 target in both little-endian and big-endian modes. Moreover, the way of building image for the POWER9 Talos II hardware platform will be demonstrated. Finally, some practical experience with the POWER9 hardware will be shared.
