Hi, I got my pinebook pro today and all is well, i updated it to testing w/o a hitch. Thankyou.
I thought I’d make a post about this all together as it may help others if they think like me ?!?.
Anyway, I’ve been on Arch for a while so I got used to having 2 kernels, timeshift and btrfs to make sure updates couldn’t break things.
So, following this logic, on my PBP I would convert the partition to btrfs, install timeshift and auto-snap, grub-btrfs and an extra kernel (not -lts coz it was always updated at the same time as current but -zen because it was days later).
Is my thinking here wrong?
- Partition is ext4, i see btrfs is possible in KDE PM, is this a good idea on solid state?
- Can timeshift be used on arm? Who would do it? Is it likely?
- Will kernel manager be available or are you waiting for uboot to support kernel rollback as Luke mentioned in a post on the pine64 forum.
- Aaaand, does anyone know if Vivaldi will be made available?
