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!

#Sweden will likely pass a new law tomorrow which allows anyone from law enforcement to install spyware on computers, phones and smart devices a mere personal suspicion that a crime may have been or be committed. No warrant required.

Europeans may want to think hard about their options for full disk encryption, boot chain integrity and so on. Most #linux distributions have good options.

After adding proximity sensor-support to #iio-sensor-proxy (gitlab.freedesktop.org/hadess/) and adding runtime-pm support for the chip used in the #librem5 (and it's devkit) (lore.kernel.org/linux-iio/cove) we can now wire it up to #phosh to fade the screen and prevent keyboard input:

Jonathan Carter on the #Librem5 "The #Gnome apps are fast and responsive and just feel natural on this form factor. I’m looking forward again to having a pocket computer that can run Debian." - Random bits from FOSDEM 2020 jonathancarter.org/2020/02/07/

freedesktop-sdk 19.08.07 has been released with Mesa 19.3 - which means that flatpaked apps can use OpenGL out-of-box with upstream unmodified runtime on the Librem 5 now! \o/

There are five browser cores:
- webkit
- chromium
- gecko
- servo
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos

Over the past few years I've noticed myself stopping to do custom tweaks on my own system, and instead working to fix the underlying issue for everyone.

I finally wrote my thoughts about this down in a more coherent form blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/

If you are using libhandy, use the libhandy-0-0 branch instead of master — e.g. in your Flatpak manifests.

We will soon bump the API version on master to prepare libhandy 1.0, so if you get libhandy from that branch, your app *will* stop building.

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!
