postmarketOS/Alpine edge image for the Pinebook Pro
#21
Is there a chance of a 'regular pinebook' (no pro) image anytime soon? I think it would be nice to have a lightweight alternative for that less power device.
Thanks!

You can do `echo s2idle | sudo tee /sys/power/mem_sleep` to set the default sleep mode to s2idle but it isn't persistent across reboots.

It working perfectly, thank you very much Smile
I just did an alias in my .zshrc to quickly apply this workaround.

To be honest, I'm using only postmarket since 2 days and I think I will keep it for my main OS.


Just I have a strange thing about emmc install (dd on emmc from emmc to usb adaptor).
In my case it's unusable, because on boot nothing responding, I'm on login page but keyboard/trackpad and usb are disabled.
postmarket didn't crash, if I wait some minutes, screen fade to black (screensaver), but I still can't do anything.
It's not a big problem, currently I only use sd card  but but I just want to say it Smile

Hmm that's weird, I haven't flashed it to eMMC yet to test. for the workaround I added the alpine sysfs thing to automatically set s2idle in my new image. will publish that one soon.

In theory that one is pretty easy to support since we already have the A64-lts, pinetab and pinephone. The reason it's not in there yet is that I don't have a test device for it and nobody with the og pinebook made the port yet in pmos. It's probably a easy port to make so you could try it Smile

Thank you for making pmOS on the PBP possible :)

However, is there any ETA for this weird eMMC issue that @tuxfanou described (#22)? I would love to help debugging in case it's needed.
It's just that I am unsure whether I should flash it on my SD for now (and maybe putting /home on eMMC)

@bleistift @tuxfanou I haven't been able to reproduce the eMMC issue. Could you get a dump of `logread > log.txt` and upload that?

@MartijnBraam I'm sorry but I can't do it on eMMC because ther is no keyboard, no trackpad and no usb, only screen.
Maybe it's possible to do something with UART console but I don't know how to do.

I just want to add a bug to the list (on sd card) : I can't use only headphones without speakers (both are always active) even if I try to use alsamixer. I can remember Manjaro had the same problem with kernel 5.5 and it has been patched in 5.6 (but I'm not sure) so I presume it's a known issue.

Pinebook pro support is now merged in postmarketOS Smile

The pmos build is running 5.6 though, I specifically made an alsa UCM file to make it properly support headphone switching.

Thank you so much for you very hard work !


Can I stay on my current installation with an apk upgrade or is it mandatory to build now myself ? Will you create a new image ?

I'm still on 5.5.0-rc3. Will your patch be available without re-flashing sdcard or not ?
Thank you again. Now I don't want to leave pmOS thanks to you (and trying to use it on my old phones/tablets)
I would like to help but I don't know how I can.

You should be able to just upgrade your current system to the stuff that has been merged. It should pull linux-postmarketos-rockchip 5.6 from the postmarketOS repository: http://pkgs.postmarketos.org/package/mas...s-rockchip

It works like a charm !
Thank you very much for information about this package, I just needed to do `apk upgrade -a` instead of `apk upgrade`
