Those repos used there are broken.

Some of the plasma-mobile-* packages depend on a package called koko, which is available in these repos but in turn depends on libexiv2-26, which is neither available there nor in Ubuntu.

There might or might not be more dependency problems of this kind.

@maegon9y00:
In case you work for Purism's marketing team*, your last post is exactly what I'd expect them to do at this point in time: Make people aware of what they need to advance the project.

In case you don't work for them, then they should hire you asap!


*) not sure if the "we" in your post is an indication for that or a literal quote from a Purism document.

Debian Developers can see the point. PureOS is baser on Debian. PureOS is the operating System of Librem13, Librem15, and Librem5 phone.

Can you see it now?

Lets see what 2018 brings:

Purism has some lofty goals that seem more attainable with each advancement that we make. Our pace for these achievements is already impressive, and we plan on maintaining and exceeding that pace in 2018. This coming year, we plan to:


Release the development board for the Librem 5 phone.

Produce great documentation for developers to write applications into PureOS (or any GNU/Linux based OS) for the Librem 5 phone.

Attend significantly more conferences and events; this lets us meet long-standing collaborators, improves our own knowledge, and also lets us raise awareness about our ideals and approaches to solving long-standing challenges in the industry.

Release our Purist Ethical Services offering (more news on this later).

Advance the Librem 15 and Librem 13 laptops into a version model.

Release the much-awaited em tablet.

Release TPM + Heads as a “turn-key” product on our devices.

Can we have any information on Purisms take on Spectre (CVE-2017-5753, CVE-2017-5715) with regards to the Librem 5 please?
Purism's official statement so far only covers x86. [1] (Quite frankly, it doesn't even do that very well - little data, lots of buzz.)
ARM says, the Cortex A9 (i.MX6) is vulnerable, while the A53/A72 (i.MX8) is not. [2]

To me that's an even stronger argument in favour of the i.MX8 over the i.MX6 than the higher performace.
I'm very close to making the fundamental decision of never buying any device again that doesn't adress Spectre (and Meltdown) in hardware, as I have way to many of them currently floating around that don't do that.

(btw: Also the A8 in our N900s is vulnerable, but given our general situation, that's not really much of a deal. [3])

Edit:
Correction: According to ARM, the A72 is vuilnerable, so if an i.MX8 with A72 cores (i.MX 8QuadMax, i.MX 8QuadPlus [4]) would be installed in the Librem 5, one would have to make sure, these cores are not used.
The safer approach would probably be to use just a basic i.MX8 wiithout A72 cores.

The fact that they still haven't decided to go iMX6 or iMX8 is VERY scary.

I for sure know that debeloping hardware takes ALOT of time.

Looks like phone wll not be avaible Q1 2019 as they first said...
