i'm glad to be able to say that we are once again working with NLnet. this time they are funding the development of a future MNT Reform version (codenamed MNT Reform Next) that is thinner and powered by a next-gen processor such as RK3588. please note that we are still early in the process and want to solicitate feedback and collaboration from other makers so that it is easy to contribute and reuse modules across projects.

#Tuba v0.3.0 is now available, with many new features, performance improvements and bug fixes!


- Custom emoji support :blobcatpat:

There are too many changes to list here, if you're more interested, check out the full release changelog:

#GTK #GNOME #Vala #mastodev

Testing the new merge request to set lockscren wallpapers in while waiting for vodafone's hotline to *please* fix out internet connection (which they fail to do so for seven days in a row now).

Has anybody tried to assemble and run Genode OS on an Arm64 based mobile phone yet?

Seems that it has all the hallmarks of open source OS with microkernel and policy framework that should make this a faster and more secure os than Unix based Linux. Thoughts?

I mean i sortof disagree. A square cat would move in a square box in a determinant fashion along two axis. So mathematically it would be easier to predict the cats location, speed

mobile-settings 0.27.0

Now allows to set the ringtone for calls and sms?!?!

This is quite cool! I guess a lot of distros will have to update their wiki's and settings on "how to change the ringtone"

Tested Volla Phone with Volla OS Android 11:
not so good
1. springboard has potential but does not accept launch commands (e.g. typing Settings wont open settings)
2. apps cant easily be accessed and are hidden by +# apps button
3. Manually added APN settings are overwritten automatically
4. open vpn file import not supported
5. navigation in springboard is confusing
6. android has too many settings
7. springboard no way to delete bookmarks
8. springboard no right swipe usage

Tested Volla Phone with Volla OS Android 11 Part 2:
things that work well
1. backup and using SDcard to store backup and app info
2. smooth naviagation and easy setup
3. general settings that are privacy forward such as using Duckduckgo as default search
4. Wifi mac address default randomization
5. using Aurora store with anonymous login to access google apps
6. Having fdroid preinstalled
7. general camera, system, browser performance and battery runtime is great

ChatGPT is not behaving pathologically when it claims that the population of Mars is 2.5 billion people—it's behaving exactly as it was designed to, making up linguistically plausible responses to dialogue, in the absence of any underlying knowledge model, and guessing when its training set offers nothing more specific.

My #Librem5 had been delivered with a Redpine RS9116 M.2 Key E card for #Bluetooth and #Wifi.

I already owned two devices I wanted to use with my Librem5:

a bluetooth mouse to be used alongside with my nexdock360
a high quality noise canceling bluetooth headset I use for phone calls and sometimes to listen to music

Both didn't work well: the mouse wouldn't connect (Bluetooth LE only) and the headset connection was unreliable with a lot of stutter.

In newer Librem5s the SparkLAN WNFB-266AXI card is used for Bluetooth/Wifi. I exchanged the card to find out whether this would improve the situation and it did.

Both devices connect now, most of the stutter while listening to music is gone, the headset works for calls (but unusable due to bad quality) and my mouse connects and works fine.

@purism@librem.one wrote a blog post about the new card and made it available on their shop.

P.D. If ever a small golden pin falls out of your Librem5 after you opened it read this forum post.

So I've been building a 100% analog polyphonic synthesizer with an unique twist. To use only vacuum tube era technology from the 1930s.

Over 300 neon gas diodes create the sound you hear. Pretty awesome for technology from 100 years ago.

Still a work-in-progress, but I wanted to post a video of it with the innards spread out across the workbench. : }

I call it the "Neon String Machine"

I'd really like to thank jenneron[1] for their contributions to #postmarketOS! 🎉

They have been the 2nd highest committer to pmOS over the past 6 months. Recent contributions include adding new devices, simplifying the boot process for many devices, and adding new ways to support booting on others.

They've also added something like 26(!!!) new device ports since they began contributing to pmOS 🤯
