Yep the charger driver is already working on the bootloader and the rework of the driver in the kernel is well underway. It will be done very soon (probably by the end of the weekend but no promises). Following that will be the rework of the battery fuel gauge driver. This is a separate chip from the charger and monitors the battery to tell the kernel how much time is left until the battery’s dead/charged, battery health, etc.At least for the Pree Pree Orders,
But the question is : how useful is the Pyra at this state??
If I would get my Pyra today, what can I do whit it?? (Beside of look at it and enjoy??)
I know it’s a normal Debian, and some of us got it already in use.. also Toastbucked is currently working on the Charging Software, which is great because it’s better to recharge the battery than grow it away everytime and buy a new battery..
can I use libre office, can I play Debian Games , Solitär, Minesweeper etc??
I haven’t done a whole lot of playing around with it in terms of everyday usage, but I did throw visualboyadvance on there to play around a little bit. And it worked really well. I haven’t quite figured out yet how to use the dbp repository and things like that but I plan to download some more games and stuff to check it out. I may have a Pyra prototype, but I haven’t really had an opportunity yet to play with it the way you guys will
Personally I’m not a big fan of Mate so I’d be curious about trying some other DEs. I installed i3 (this is my default DE) and I really liked its performance. I’ll work on a config for it at some point because the current one isn’t exactly Pyra friendly. I also tried GNOME but I couldn’t get it to start. I’m not really sure if it was too heavy or a configuration issue or something, I didn’t put too much time into it.
I couldn’t get the Firefox package to work, I’m likely doing something wrong because again I didn’t put too much into it, but I installed Midori and it works really smoothly. Used it to go and download a couple games to test out and it was nice and responsive.
