As of todays #linux-next (https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/next/linux-next.git/tag/?h=next-20210112) you can run the #librem5devkit without any additional patches using the default mainline arm64 #defconfig. This means distributions can enable it without trouble from #linux 5.12 onwards. The #librem5 itself needs some more work but it builds a lot on what we have for the devkit.

I finished a 5 part series on how to run an e-mail server in 2022 with all the DKIM/SPF/DMARC stuff working. It's not a simple HOWTO series, but it does explain all the moving parts. So if you're interested to learn a bit about modern e-mail - you're welcome! Starts here: https://jan.wildeboer.net/2022/08/Email-0-The-Journey-2022/
Along with that go releases of phosh-mobile-settings: https://gitlab.gnome.org/guidog/phosh-mobile-settings/-/tags/v0.21.0 and phosh-osk-stub: https://gitlab.gnome.org/guidog/phosh-osk-stub/-/tags/v0.21.0 and well as phoc 0.21.1 as just announced.
phosh 0.21.0 is out 🚀📱 :
It was supposed to be bug fixes only but also got improved screen shot support and a (experimental) widget to show
upcoming events on the lock screen.
Check out the full release notes at https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/Phosh/phosh/-/tags/v0.21.0
Thanks everyone! We had some Samsung Galaxy S3 devices mentioned in the phosh matrix channel recently as well.
Today I am enjoying the beach!
Thanks to automatic high-contrast mode in #Phosh I can still waste time on the internet 😂
gsettings set sm.puri.phosh automatic-high-contrast true
to enable it, and you can also adjust the
gsettings set sm.puri.phosh automatic-high-contrast-threshold <number>
Thanks @agx for this useful feature!
In case youre @FrOSCon I'll give a short talk on #linux #mobile tomorrow: https://programm.froscon.org/2022/events/2797.html
The debugging symbols have been embedding build paths since 2022.04~rc4.
Not sure if it was a packaging change, or an upstream change, but passing -ffile-prefix-map instead of -fmacro-prefix-map to the compiler, as well as passing --debug-prefix-map to the "as" generated assembly fixed it!
Time to submit upstream!
It is rainy here, so I can't actually test it yet, but I just updated phosh on my pinephone and set this on it also.
Great work from purism with this new phosh update!!!
Impressions from Debconf by @agx. He shares his experience using Librem 5 on his road trip to Prizren.
As this came up multiple times: phosh 0.20.0 currently requires GTK animations to be on:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface enable-animations true
So if you (or your distro) turned it off please enable it before updating as otherwise you won't be able to use the overview.
