Eager to run linux kernel 5.8 on @mobian ? Can you keep a secret? -> https://repo.mobian-project.org/pool/main/l/linux-5.8-sunxi64/
We are ecclectic at grabbing the best things in town: @martijnbraam's megapixel camera app is now available (and the default camera for new installs).
Also, if an upgrade fails due to a gnome-camera [pinhole] dependency: you need to get rid of python3-yoyo-migrations which is superseded by Debian's python3-yoyo package.
Some progress on getting sound working on the #Pinetab.
I can confirm that with the latest @mobian update the touchpad on the pinetab works flawlessly , amazing work !
It's by far the most stable and feature complete distro I've tried thus far. ...And I really didn't expect to be impressed & certainly didn't think I would like it more than #Manjaro (being the #Arch simp that I am).
No distro is perfected for this device as of yet, but this is by far the best candidate to make it a viable daily-driver at this moment.
* Regular CE - 2GB RAM/ 16GB eMMC
* Convergence Package - 3GB RAM/ 32GB eMMC bundled with a USB-C dock.
Pre-orders open mid September.
Starting with next build, there will be no more default password "root" for user root in @mobian. In fact, root will have no password at all. Also the silly restriction to have a non-numeric password for regular users is gone.

And before you ask..., the failing asound comes straight from the debian repos and not ours. SOmething seems to be configured differently and failing on mobian.
A customized version of Debian on mobile, currently supporting the pinephone.
