Telegram installation
#1
I'm having troubles installing Telegram on archlinux-pinephone-phosh-20210124.
In Chats\Preferences when I tap Telegram the phone reboots almost always. If I can add my telegram user ID, I've no clue about the Telegram password required.

If I try to install telegram Desktop, the phone remain stuck in Pending Installation.
Any idea on how to solve these issues?

I'm new to Linux despite I'm an old (and retired) system engineer with experience about hp-ux.
Thanks

Sorry for slow reply - only just noticed this thread.

I have no problem installing telegram desktop on a fresh Arch installation

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S telegram-desktop

is all I do. When I start Telegram I put in my mobile number - usually needs a few tries on the send buttom but either I get an SMS with a code or if another of mu Telegram instances is running on another computer I get a message there with a code.

Thanks for the quick replay and the solution. Now Telegram is OK but I get several reboots : I find the overall environment unreliable. I'm still in the phase where I need to decide which OS is the best form my usage. So far PostmarketOS seems to be the best for me.

I have just installed Arch 20210214 and pacman update takes it to kernel 5.10.16.

Not sure what element has changed but so far seems significantly snappier than my previous Arch installation.

If it is just phosh crashing (you land back at phosh sign in screen) then it may well be your memory can't cope, see the note just above the checksum on the release page. I run 552.
