I know it's been done but I had to write something about the #pinebookpro

"there’s always the option to build from source but that is not very elegant"
some distros disagree 😄
but is typora even open source? i just checked the nixos packages and they also just offer the x86_64 build with a license of "unfree".
on the website i could only find the prebuilt x86_64 binaries with no reference to the source code as well.
that would explain why there's no arm package for it..
@schrofi and I guess building from source is elegant if it is done automatically 🙂, you know, 1 click install ...
@lopeztel Would love to hear more about your usage and any shortcomings you find while using this in the coming months.
@lopeztel That's quite strange. However, I know the Manjaro team are truly putting in a lot of effort in to the performance on ARM.
I don't use it myself, but they are regular guests on the Linux Unplugged podcast and it's always interesting to hear what they are up to and achieving: https://linuxunplugged.com/episodes (search the page for "manjaro arm").
@gray thanks, I'll check it out
