GitLab bottleneck

Hi there,
I’ve been experimenting with convergence on my Librem5 and wanted to add to the Purism Git Repo with the accessories/peripherals that I found to work; when I try to add to the wiki, though, I’m sent to a signup page for Purism GitLab that doesn’t seem responsive (or is it normal that it should take a week to verify a new account?). Anyone else with this issue? Workaround? Thx!

I believe so - in the sense that new accounts require manual verification and who knows whether the person at Purism who does this is just a bit busy with other things at the moment. You may have to badger Purism Support.

Post whatever information you wanted to add to the Community Wiki here (in reply to this post) and I will edit that information into the Wiki.

For any USB peripherals include the vendor id and product id if you can (as shown by lsusb).

OK, many thanks @irvinewade
I connected using the Hoyoki hub Purism sells. Worked out of the box, no prob (powered with the cable Purism ships with the Librem5).
Connected to the web via ethernet cable to a TP-Link Deco XE5300 mesh, also just worked, no prob.
Plugged in a corded Perixx mouse and a corded Razer keyboard, using a Sabrent USB hub. Seem to work fine.
lsusb output for mouse and keyboard yields the following:
ID 1bcf:0005 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc. Optical Mouse
ID 1532:0214 Razer USA, LTD BlackWidow Ultimate 2016
Connected through HDMI to an HP VH240a screen via a Techole HDMI splitter. Results uneven. Readout on Settings > Displays gives me “<Unknown> <Unknown>” for the screen name, but it sometimes works, as in, the monitor receives the phone’s input and displays it. Results appear unaffected by whether the connection goes through the HDMI splitter or directly from the monitor to the Hoyoki hub.
OK, further results as I get them.

I added the keyboard and the mouse.

The USB-C hub, as it is sold by Purism, is already listed as working.

I chose not to mention the ethernet (as it is mostly a function of the USB-C hub) or the extra USB 2.0 hub.

I’ll leave you to further investigate the monitor. There may be some merit in doing fault isolation by connecting the monitor to a full-size Linux computer.
