@linmob With pboot (GUIless) and Phosh I managed to get a really good experience out of my device when it comes to performance but I to scared of the modem stability to switch back.

@linmob Mobian always caused nothing but issues for me and the Debian repo is in my opinion a very questionable choice for something as WIP and proper mobile Linux, so I chose PostmarketOS when I daily drove mine but ik these two where the best options which still failed for me.

@linmob I am aware of all that but when I last daily drove bugs like never arriving SMS, one sided calls (where only one can hear the other) and sometimes big delays for missed calls to appear where all things I ran into. These aren't caused by network support issues because those only make mobile data impossible in my area, not calls and sms as far as I can tell. In addition the modem seemed to crash very rarely but still device breaking if you want to daily drive (not sure about the details)

I quit daily driving the Pinephone qute a while ago because I just wasn't able to get stable SMS and calls and the Matrix situation was quite a nightmare. I do wan't ro dailydrive it again so to all who currently do it, how has the modem situation improved and with which distros?

I spent some time building signal-rs (git.sr.ht/~nicohman/signal-rs) for the (well, the Librem 5 spent time on it, more than 12 hours, ;-) ), it worked. If you want to do the same, head over to forums.puri.sm/t/axolotl-libre

The idea to use gadget mode for the seems to require a kernel module pmos does not come with. I may try to build that tomorrow. If not, the backup plans are to use the uart to talk to an arduino micro that can be a keyboard, or something like ydotool which is supposed to be similar to xdotool but it supports wayland.

@joeligj12 Ik the dev and it tends to work far better then Invidious for me so it's kind of a nobrainer :)

@joeligj12 The website is arguably even heavier then Youtubes :)

@PublicNuisance That's obviously true and I am anything but a Google fan. I just draw lines when it choose what to recommend/promote/support and LBRY itself wouldn't even fail that. It's just Odysee that I don't want to recommend anymore and since it's the Nr.1 landing spot for new LBRY users I draw a line there. You can agree or disagree with me but that's just my opinion and I feel like posting it online rn.

@PublicNuisance In theory you are right but in practice I just want to puke whenever I see the content on Bitchute. I will continue to use LBRY for content consumption but over Piped instead of the app or Odysee since my faith in LBC isn't specially high, I would like to avoid Odysees tracking mess and at the same time use there CDN. If things improve I will probably come back eventually but at the current stage it's hard for me to see LBRY getting out of the Odysee mess any time soon :/

I have a little bit in LBC because there was a time when I actually did believe in LBRY but I will jump ship now specially since I no longer use it to stake in my content. It's obviously a awful time to sell but at the current price I still get out with a small plus that should cover at least part of the exchange fees. I have been a more or less active LBRY user for years but all my attempts to change the direction failed and Federation comes to late. Odysee isn't far from Bitchute now :(

Hi, I know I was gone for a long time once again because my blog just has to take the back seat when I run low on time but it seems like I will have more time left soon so I plan to write again as soon as I got back in the loop :)

@Linux4Everyone I still like LBRY and the idea behind it but before the Odysee/LBRY split I also gave up hope. Odysee is the main interface so it will continue to attract most people but I am hopeful again that the Federation attempts could still succeed (For frontend and wallet server aka blocklists) which could make the platform somewhat viable again for me if everything goes well.
