@linmob Question for next PineTalk podcast:

So, I ordered a pine phone from the latest batch, which is due to ship by the end of the month IIRC. The question is, what would be your top three recommendations of which OS to run on it and why?

I should also state that I really don't want to cause a flame war here, I just want to get an honest evaluation of the current state of the best OSes for the pine phone. Thanks in advance!

Phosh Overview

"phosh is graphical shell for mobile, touch based devices like smart phones. It’s the default graphical shell on Purism’s Librem 5 (and that’s where it came to life) but projects like Postmarket OS, Mobian and Debian have picked it up putting it into use on other devices as well and contributing patches."

While we had enabled power saving for the vivante gpu on the since some time we couldn't power off the corresponding regulator (power supply) since the phone would hang then. Turns out we just didn't give it enough time to come back up. Fix is already merged into linux-next: git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/k

With latest updates, GNOME Web (Epiphany) can play YouTube videos on the Librem 5, so you won't have to switch to Firefox to do that anymore. And you won't believe where the bug was located[1]! ;) Call `sudo apt install gstreamer1.0-libav` or wait a few days until it's installed by default with the next update and enjoy. @purism

[1] it was in glibc...
