@tbernard oh, it's clearly a git-over-bittorrent client!
I always wanted a simple way to do measurements on the #librem5 with a voltmeter or scope while still having most of the hardware like #wifi attached and being able to swap components quickly. Today i got an idea and it works fairly well. I can even flip the whole thing around fairly quickly to measure on the other side and put the whole thing away to free space on the desk:
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.
@carlosgonz As I said, those updates are not related to mainline releases. There were several 5.9 kernels distributed for Librem 5 and a new one is now available in the staging repo (and will migrate to production in a few days). This particular fix is included in version 5.9.16+librem5.1.
But answering your question - there's already a 5.11-rc2 tree available for testing and I'm running it on my phones. https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/linux-next/-/tree/imx8-next-librem5
@gamey If the drivers have improved since the last time I tried it there, it might have worked out-of-box in GL mode now. You may still get slightly better performance in GLES though.
Just tagged phoc 0.6.0 - notable changes: filters out touch events on disabled touchscreens (thanks to @craftyguy), improves handling of tiled windows, includes plenty of bugfixes for mouse pointer support and tries a bit harder to fit windows onto the screen (which may help some Flatpak apps). Grab it for your distro while it's fresh! #librem5 #phosh #phoc #gnomeonmobile #mobile #gnu #linux @purism https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phoc/-/releases/v0.6.0
@carlosgonz Yes, that's what I meant. Scrolling in Epiphany is slow, and zooming is super slow, but that's Epiphany's (and gtk's) thing. What's properly GPU-accelerated works smoothly on the L5.
@carlosgonz Epiphany is slow even on my laptop. AFAIK there's still plenty of work needed to make it as performant as it could be.
@carlosgonz The screen has been running at 63Hz for a while already.
#phosh 0.7.1 is out 🚀 : https://source.puri.sm/Librem5/phosh/-/releases/v0.7.1
Bug fixes for keyboard navigation, monitor unplug, and modal dialog background rendering (@dos) but also new features like keygrabbing support (to make e.g media keys work) by @devrtz and initial logind support.
