Wanted: Power9, for the mouses

Here’s a nice obscure bug: mouse wheel events on FreeBSD on Power9 are not recognized by Qt5. I don’t have anything PPC64 .. there were some Mac G4s at a second-hand place in town, but that is not a road to happiness. So obviously I need a Power9-based system to test this, and by coincidence Raptor Computing is now accepting pre-orders.

Yeah, not for $2000 to debug a mouse problem, but if anyone has one I can borrow, hit me up 🙂

(PS. I mentioned back in October that KDE Plasma 5 on Debian on Power9 Just Works, so it is something in the FreeBSD side of things.)
