very pleased with the pace of things with the pbp, i haven't seen anything like it before outside raspberry pi stuff. i'm spending a lot of time lurking here just to see things develop in front on my eyes.

Looks good for now. Konsole does not crash on dmesg, Stella runs fine on software rendering, Kubuntu PPA works fine. Tomorrow I can try KDE Neon and upgrade to 19.10. For now, it looks very stable and usable. OpenGL renderer is just llvmpipe, but the performance is nice.

edit: sound does not seem to work
edit2: neither I do not see the battery percentage
edit3: sleep is not supported (or disabled)

You checked the Bionic image, right? On Buster I had a problem with wifi, but the whole overall also looked good (also without sound, battery and sleep).

Yes, Bionic, I installed all of the KDE packages I use on regular Ubuntu install. Will play with that tonight to check the sound issue.

Ok, so this is what I found;
- there is no problem upgrading to 19.10 also with Kubuntu PPA enabled
- sound works after some playing. I installed all Phonon packages and played with Audio settings in KDE and it finally works.
- Stella finally runs at full speed also in OpenGL and OpenGL ES mode
- Konsole does not crash on dmesg command
- I can install Krita (there is arm64 package available)
- Sleep mode is supported (but waking up does not work, there are some error messages in console after and I have to reboot)
- battery status is not shown yet

This looks to be an ideal OS for me so far.

Also, I am trying to solve this issue:

Armbian, Running debian, not ubuntu. Anyone have any luck getting wifi to connect? it's on, and sees networks, but fails on connection, as if the password was wrong. (It's not, tried three different networks I control, and failed connecting to any of them)


I'd love to have 'pure' debian stable (sort of) running on my pinebook pro, instead of oldstable.

Yesterday I made another test with Armbian Ubuntu, installed KDE Neon on Bionic and it also runs well, including acceleration and sound. Sleep does work too, but does not wake up. Battery status does not work.

I found out that the following previous error is caused by changing bionic to eoan of focal in sources list. When I change that, this error appears after running apt update.

Code:

Seems that KDE Neon does not have kernel module working.
