Netrunner 18.03 Idolon for the Pinebook
#81
I tried it and it does not work. Marked all the listed packages to hold and after reboot the KDE did not start, I saw only the mouse cursor.

Which thing did you try? Zenial -> Bionic, or upgrading Netrunner? I can confirm it definitely works on Netrunner; I still have it installed and it's working fine (except for sound after sleep). I've done several small updates since the original update with no problems.

I tried upgrading Xenial KDE to Bionic. The update went well, the problem was after the first restart. I had only the blank screen with the mouse.

Okay; yeah; I can't vouch for that. But since you do have X running, the first thing I would try is creating a new user ID and logging in with that to get default desktop settings. Maybe it's a setting for some plasmoid or other desktop component you have configured that didin't upgrade properly.

The Netrunner update went fine; I suppose that's a testimony to Debian's stability. :-p

Ok, I use no plasmoid, so I reinstalled the system with Ubuntu Mate and will try to to the update now.

edit: Mate works, I held these packages:

I am not sure if I need to hold all of these packages.

BTW, sleep, resume and sound works! Smile

Yesterday I tried to unhold all remaining packages and to update them step by step, with restart after each upgrade. Finally, I updated all the packages and I run fully updated Kubuntu 18.04 and it works.

A question. What kernel version is Netrunner using?
  Reply
#88
I'm still running this. The command uname -r reports:
Code:
3.10.105-bsp-1.2


This is an ancient kernel, but it seems to work.

I really recommend using rather Ubuntu and upgrade to latest version and to install KDE, it works flawlessly.

I prefer something that rolls. If I could get Arch or Manjaro onto the eMMC, I'd use that. Barring that, I've installed Netrunner, enabling the rolling repos lets it roll, and holding back the xorg update keeps my driver in place. For what I use the Pinebook for (mobile note taking and writing), that's enough for me. Of course I'd love it if Netrunner would fix the sleep issue, but I don't have a lot of time to keep installing new images and setting things up again, which is why I use a rolling release (Manjaro) on all my other systems.

I may reconsider when the 4.19 kernel comes out, as it should then have native support for the Pinebook: https://linux-sunxi.org/Linux_mainlining...d_for_4.19
