How hard is to flash a Linux on ? Just type 10 commands in console and your @postmarketOS based tablet is ready to use! Stuff you use everyday works out-of-box... and you can use your desktop @gnome apps. What a feeling!

switched build from armhf to armv7. Now have and ( client). Now we need proper 3D acceleration for Tegra board. Any good coder with some free time? 😁

Nexus 7 merge request for mainline kernel is ready for @postmarketOS . Originally shipped Bluetooth 3.0 in is real BT4.0 chip and works well with 4.0 and 5.0 headphones. Today was a good day.

spend yesterday on implementing filesystem support for @postmarketOS . Some bits still missing, but with minimal manual change to initrd, it booted.

I hope good F2FS design payoffs with better performance and storage longevity than with classic ...
We will see after first benchmarks.

Install and enjoy compressed swap (almost always better than just dumping swap data on hdd/ssd) or enable in-memory swapping into part of ram, which will be compressed. Kernel supports ZRAM and ZSWAP for long time...Do YOU using it? In case you do, where?

Hmm the #pinephone will need a FOSDEM app now... Is there a Linux desktop app that can read/plan the schedule?

Beauty of one nvidia mobile GPUs. This one is almost dead, but luckilly CPU didn't given up so easily, so compiling like crazy. Pattern on screen changes time to time, so I consider it almost art. Anyway, from art to Linux reality - F*ck you nvidia. Especially for ignoring Linux community!

My friend's HDD failed, system couldn't recognize it until I disassembled PCB part and put it back together. Any idea why? Seems like except small damaged parts (1.2MB for now), rest of data is intact (500G backed up at this moment).

Lately I've seen some incorrect statements and facts about Linux on mobile being thrown around, and I decided to write a blog post to give some more correct info. Please give it a read fam-ribbers.com/2019/12/28/Sta 😄

If you see any mistakes I've made, please correct me!

@gnome apps on should support format soon. Why today and not 8 years ago? Because Google seems to don't give f%$k about gdk-pixbuf support...

Show @mozilla that we need freeing memory under pressure instead of OOM killing . Please subscribe 😅

First experiment with adaptive brightness on . Patch written by @agx for but since it's open-source code, everyone benefits! ✌️

20fps with software rendering (4x Cortex A9), 250 fps with grate-driver (tegra mesa-3d fork). Finally working with @postmarketOS . Not bad. Now at least OGL 2.1 feature parity would be nice.
