After recent nightlies were broken due to a bug in upstream f2fs-tools, nightly 2020031 is working again, and using f2fs as root filesystem. We'll report how things develop.

Quick service note: The latest nightlies are broken, use the latest image file that is not in the nightly directory for now. Thanks. P.s. the rootf is too full and cannot be resized, leaving basically no free space in the root partition.

Geolocation broke on @mobian with the update to libgeoclue 2.5.7, we will push a downgrade to a working 2.5.6 soonish until the real cause and fix is there.

@mobian community edition is starting to arrive! (this is the convergence 3GB version). Thanks @PINE64 (this phone has been purchased as a regular customer, and was in no way sponsored BTW)

Fresh from the issue tracker: if you install kde-connect on @mobian it will take over all phone calls (aka tel:// URIs), breaking phone calls from the address book.

Fix by setting your preferred phonecall app by adding

x-scheme-handler/tel=sm.puri.Calls.desktop

to /usr/share/applications/gnome-mimeapps.list.

random nerd tip of the day. The broadway backend (broadwayd in the libgtk-3-bin package) allows you to ran a GTK app in a (remote) browser:

broadwayd&
GDK_BACKEND=broadway gedit

and admire gedit with http://PINEPHONE:8080

Careful: we are currently working out a bug in full disc encryption (FDE) install on SD cards. If you already have an install onyour internal eMMC, please avoid using the installer on an SD card for now. The installer gets currently confused and modifies the emmc.

@debian take note that one of the mirrors behind deb.debian.org seems obsolete and not working:

debian.map.fastlydns.net/

This caused a @mobian user on the to not being able to upgrade...

Where should that be reported?
