*slaps roof of #pinephone*
this boy can fit so many distros in it
Also working on getting chatty (SMS) and calls ready, but I'm waiting for upstream package updates.
If you do try out the script, note that the lock screen doesn't work past the first boot, so be sure to disable the lock screen in settings :P
Luckily the domain was never used for anything, but still.
In other words: You won't find Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc. on HIBP, but you sure will find Zynga, Armor Games, random web hosts, etc.

RHEL 8 on #pinephone?
Needs ~10-16GB of free space on your pinephone and computer since it's using rawhide. PLEASE visually inspect everything before running- it's barely tested and assumes a lot of things.
Take it more as an example of how to install a desktop OS on your pinephone than a finished product.
I installed Debian and it feels like I tried to install Windows 10 on a computer from 2006. Anything involving graphics in GNOME (like animations) are just like "lol nah"
So I try to get the proprietary NVidia drivers (the FIRST thing I try to install) and... "you have held broken packages"
...are Debian and derivatives just unviable for desktop use? apt is quite possibly the worst piece of popular Linux software I've used
