Finally tried the postmarketOS image with Plasma Mobile on my Librem 5 Birch! It's booting from an USB drive :D

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/

- the default applications
- the Fractal @matrix client
- the Komikku webcomic reader
- the terminal application

"I'm blown away by what Purism has been able to accomplish. This is a much more polished product than I expected when I backed. (...) All the basics are there and it seems to be a solid foundation for the future" :)
