Wow, looks like I somehow got first post. I just got a Pinebook and have been experimenting with Netrunner on it. I’ve used dd to copy the image to the internal emmc, and it boot fine.
The people over at the Pinebook forums are talking about NetworkManager not auto-connecting to wifi on boot, which I know is a regression in Plasma 5 from months ago and is currently fixed. For this reason, I’m attempting to update the distro to a later version of Plasma 5…
My first experiment failed. I tried enabling the Debian, Netrunner, and Netrunner-rolling repositories in /etc/apt/sources.list.d and then doing an apt-get dist-upgrade. Everything updated well, and then upon reboot, X wouldn’t load due to a difference in ABI version between the device driver and X.
I suppose there are two solutions to this problem:
Find a newer device driver (I have no idea what it is or how to find it; I’m assuming it’s something not managed by the package manager or in a repository?).
Configure apt not to update X and try the update again.
I’m going to try #2 unless somebody has any more information. My goal is through upstream, fix the NetworkManager issue (it was a Plasma 5 regression that has now been fixed), and possibly the sleep issue.
Can anybody offer me any advice? Thanks!
