New Phosh image - first impressions
#1
Just found the latest phosh image for download. I will give it a more in-depth test tomorrow, but one thing I noticed is that when I try and dial a number, it says "ModemManager unavailable". Consequently, SMS does not work either.

A step backwards? Is this an attempt to address the battery drain?

On the other hand, the inclusion of the Midori browser is a welcome addition. It seems to work well.

Probably worth adding 20200218 to the thread title, hope there will be lots more latest releases :-)

Main change seems to be 5.5 kernel. It didn't immediately recognise my SIM either which seems to be regression but I am still trying to sort a testing SIM to reduce the amount of swapping I am doing.

Where do you get this image from? Do you know if it's possible to upgrade an existing pmos install?

I think not - AFAIK the bleeding edge will be the latest demo image. Of course between those apk update & upgrade can keep other bits neatly trimmed.

Came here to find light on the same issue: ModemManager unavailable. Sounds like the thing to do is just wait for the situation to clarify? ??

Are there any command line options to set up the modem manually?

Code:
sudo apk update
sudo apk upgrade
sudo apk add modemmanager
gets modem manager installed but the dialler still shows it as missing.

Before that the standard

Code:
ofonoctl poweron
ofonoctl online
sudo ofonoctl wan --connect --append-dns
brings up the modem ok but again phosh is pretty unaware of it so in fact SMS and mobile data don't work.

That's as far as I could play with this so far.

I have to start the service,


Code:
/etc/init.d/modemmanager start



Also start at boot


Code:
rc-update add modemmanager


This gives me calls and sms at boot

Beginners question, will
Code:
sudo apk update
sudo apk upgrade
keep pmos up to date or do I still have to download and flash new images as they emerge?

I´m currently distro-hopping like crazy, but pmos+phosh seems nice enough to flash to emmc.
"- is there already a tool for overclocking it desperately?"

It will keep you up to date between releases. But at the moment the pmOS demo images are more advanced than the standard pmOS chain and so I guess if/when there is a new image we will need to re-flash.

Yup I have it on my eMMC, under 30 seconds to a desktop screen and that includes the 10s lag in low-level uboot or whatever.
