Is Manjaro Plasma stable for anyone?

The unstable update still black screens on boot today. I can only access the phone by having set up sshd first.

The stable update of Manjaro Plasma does not black screen as of 6-15-22 today. I now have it on the SD chip with Mobian on the main storage.

Playing an audio clip using the KDE voice recorder app undoes the playback speedup after suspend.

I really want to get a hold of SOME operating system so I can ACTUALLY START my PinePhone Pro journey. Any help how this can be achieved via tethering to download would be TREMENDOUSLY appreciated (in advance).

For what it's worth, I have a Linux computer that I can try to download via tethering. I'm not a complete n00b, but THIS whole situation has been such a a TREMENDOUS series of unending problems that I am starting to feel like one! I wasn't into Linux long. My FIRST distribution was Debian 6.

Actually, unstable updates can set the screen brightness to black. Then the only recovery is a reinstall; reverting to the stable branch is not sufficient.

This happened today, June 20, 2022. So, when doing the unstable update, the substitution for kwayland-server can not be allowed.

The installation of Tow-boot is required for a tethered installation.

The stable update for today, June 20, 2022, is safe. Manjaro Plasma can be used today as a start.

The Manjaro Plasma unstable upgrade for today caused a non recoverable session locking problem. Switching to the testing branch and executing pacman -Syyuu by way of ssh fixed the issue. I did not allow the replacement of Kwayland-server for the testing update.

A repeated execution of systemctl suspend now fixes the playback speed issue. But a suspension by timeout can repeat the problem.This also holds for Mobian.

If I were sufficiently frustrated, then I would disengage by switching to the stable branch of Manjaro Plasma and testing the upgrades of Manjaro and Mobian once per week, or even less often.

Actually, the the need to reboot after a session unlock happens on occasion in unstable at least. With no keyboard for the desktop Plasma screen, the reboot is necessary.

I did allow the replacement of kwayland-server when I switched back to the unstable branch. There is no easy way to undo that upgrade.

Today's upgrade for Mobian seems sometimes to not allow a suspend to fix the playback speed issue. So I made a large swapfile to allow the hibernate command instead. Of course hibernation would fix the playback speed.

Sometimes in the terminal app, toggling the control key is necessary to get the rest of the keyboard to appear. And the terminal app keyboard often converts to the www layout. Then I must click the world key to select the terminal layout.

The playback issue is corrected by the systemctl suspend command, but only when the playback is active at the suspend. This holds for Mobian and Manjaro Plasma. But the KDE recorder fix only works when the playback needing correction is paused.
