Re: Linux Apps on Chrome OS Tablet

It's run by Google's OS. That's not a dream by any sane standard.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Okay, I must say, that's faster than what I'd expected. Extrapolating to 2.2GHz of a XA2 that would mean 7605ms, 1.7 times as fast as on JP1, and not even that much slower than the X.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Thanks, I stand corrected.

I do find those benchmarks indicative for the actual problem: the A53-cores. The Kraken benchmark runs about 3 times slower on the 630 than on the 650, indicating that...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Yet those cores are not faster than those of even the JP1. Not many apps will actually use those eight cores. I have an 1.4GHz quad core tablet (Ubuntu Touch). It uses the same A53 cores. It is slow.

Re: [Discussion] Powermenu 2 - Sailfish

The last few SFOS updates tend to break stuff for PM2. The WLAN and BT toggles were non-functional in previous version of SFOS, but now with 2.2.0.29 the flight mode toggle is inoperative as well.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Contacts can have multiple phone numbers. E.g. landlines, mobiles, work. Could be relevant information when returning a missed call.

Re: XWayland Victory!

That's Google's DNS server. You could use CloudFlare's server, at 1.1.1.1. At least they claim to be much more privacy friendly. They also claim to be faster.

Re: Official SailfishOS-support on upcoming Sony QWERTY Phone

The claim that it is uses the same chipset as Xperia XA2 is what really tipped me. The XA2 uses Cortex A53 cores, which is made for low-power efficiency, not performance, and which has been...

They managed to miss-spell "Sailfish OS". I hope that's not indicative of the quality of their products.

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

While I prefer open source, that doesn't mean that closed source is inherently evil and anti-consumer. I've seen no evidence that the e-mail client nor the xt9 input has a hidden agenda which harms...

Re: Support for TRIM / Discard?

AFAIK, the delay caused by TRIM is indeed the reason that distributions like Ubuntu by default schedule a fstrim once a week. On the JP1, a btrfs balance is also scheduled to run once a week (Tue...

Re: Support for TRIM / Discard?

Digging a bit further into this, the source code of fstrim uses discard_granularity to see whether trim is supported (https://github.com/karelzak/util-linux/blob/master/sys-utils/fstrim.c#L141).

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Anbox is not an emulator nor virtual layer. It's a container, but runs on the kernel and hardware of machine itself, much like how it runs on SailfishOS. Performance should be excellent.
