@ink_slinger I've just gotten started with Debian unstable this week. Mostly it's upstream arm64, and I haven't seen any audio issues yet:

github.com/daniel-thompson/pin

That said, are you experiencing audio issues with the default install? I suspect you'll get a better sense of this on the forums, I don't know that I've used my PBP enough yet, and certainly not in the same configuration as you.

Honestly starting to get tired of how centric systemd is in the world. I use devuan as a daily driver, but it's exhausing when I have to do custom work to work around minor inconveniences.

Today was: modern versions of plex don't come with an /etc/init.d script anymore, only systemd service files. So I had to find / modify / write my own.

@ink_slinger I sympathize hard with this, but I'm very happy with my purchase. I upgraded from a 10 year old netbook (literally from 2010) and having a 1080p screen and wild battery life is such a gamechanger.

But the fact I got through university (B.Sc and M.Sc) and a move to the States with it is a testament to how switching to Linux changed my life.

I'm kind of hoping to eventually have that same experience with a pinephone one day as well.

@keithzg @keithzg @ink_slinger huh, super weird. Have you looked into booting a different OS on the system? I'm tempted to try and run a different Debian image, merely because I want LUKS / crypt support, but I don't know where to start.

@keithzg @ink_slinger @keithzg Aha! I just got mine today. So you just used the ANSI updater steps they outlined one the forums?

@keithzg @ink_slinger @keithzg ah damn. I was at work when they came by, and DHL wanted a signature! I'll have to wait until Monday to go pick it up myself.

@FssOfDeath @keithzg @ink_slinger

Source: my employer does similar things with different production models or SKUs so I can sympathize. But yeah, I would have preferred a smaller run if it meant I got my Pinebook Pro sooner.

@ink_slinger @keithzg @FssOfDeath I actually received my shipping notification this morning!!!

That said, I generally agree that their logistics weren't communicated well outside the forum. That said, the reason the shipment bled over was because they doubled their production run (maybe not doubled, but definitely increased it by a wide margin). ISO demand was apparently crazy so they wanted to do it in two runs, which is standard for a small supply chain.

@ink_slinger Same here! I actually reached out to support because I thought they may have forgotten my order 😬

Shower thought: skiing / snowboarding is the original pay to win sport.

Seriously, it's one of the most expensive sports that requires very little.

@ink_slinger I'm not really well versed in this but perhaps try schiit.com/ ?

My boss is a massive audiophile and recommends this every time.
