@gudenau @martijnbraam ARM devices run OpenGLES rather than full OpenGL to get performance. Applications have to support it explicitely. OpenGL 1 and 2 are just there for compatibilty reasons iirc, don't expect good performance out of them.

I'll be presenting on the FOSDEM main stage about Linux on mobile together with Merlijn Wajer from Maemo Leste. If you can not make it, make sure to watch the livestream!

@nicofee @kde @fdroidorg Wow, reading that manifest, thank god for shared libraries on regular Linux systems...

@martijnbraam Yeah ok. Can't wait for it to be mainlined enough so it can use a kernel from Alpine!

@Genstar @PINE64 Sure, for one SuperTuxKart has a touch interfacr that can be enabled. Also, there is Animatch

So got #postmarketOS booting on the #pinebookpro

Only from SD for now since u-boot is the most annoying part.

@martijnbraam Does it use a custom kernel still or do you use linux-vanilla? Would be nice to run straight up Alpine on that thing!

@tuxdevices Will the same be done for Qt and the various responsive toolkits like Kirigami?

@NeoTheThird Just a funny coincidence haha. I've actually written it in respond to someone/something else, but I won't mention it to prevent any fight from breaking out 😜

@NeoTheThird Why is VollaPhone on this list? Afaik it's just another downstream kernel-using, comes with Android by default phone.

@rah Plasma Mobile is definitely just a DE with the distribution people are referring to being KDE Neon. No doubt about it, and the Plasma Mobile team agrees with this afaik. The main dev (Bhushan Shah) read my blog post and didn't mention it being wrong.

As for Phosh, I guess you're right. The difference between shell and DE isn't that big though imo.

Nemo Mobile as a distribution is still alive, although agreed it hasn't had new images in a long time. Their IRC/Matrix is still active though!

@brad Thanks! As you have probably noticed, English is not my native language 😉 I did not realize the difference. I corrected them!

Lately I've seen some incorrect statements and facts about Linux on mobile being thrown around, and I decided to write a blog post to give some more correct info. Please give it a read fam-ribbers.com/2019/12/28/Sta 😄

If you see any mistakes I've made, please correct me!

@fosdem I'm new to OpenPGP, but is there a way to redact my key from the keyserver? I submitted it before I realized at what time the event was and how long it took last year, and I now realize I don't actually have time for it.
