Unfortunately the Librem 5 modem (well, at least one year ago when the batches were announced) isn’t fully compatible with the Australian network, so I had to cancel my pledge (and I got a full refund). I bought a Pinephone instead, it has a modem that include all the required bands for Australia and Europe.
Maybe the modem issue was a good thing after all, I would have been still waiting for my phone at this stage!
If I recall for Australia we had one customer who got Chestnut (am I on the right tree?). And he was happy with the European modem. Granted it didn’t cover the B28 band, but it worked fine for him. I’m in for Evergreen at this time and will go with the European option meaning I won’t get mobile coverage at home which doesn’t worry me at all.
I will say that the lack of having the variant that did cover the B28 band is a big disappointment seeing as though at one point it was under consideration.
I wish that were the case for me. I get two or three voicemails of the second half of a recording of a robo voice each week when I ignore numbers I don’t recognize. Either it’s my “local Google Plus Specialist” or some Mandarin Chinese robot voice saying who knows what :).
But a simple whitelist would be by far much easier to implement than this I would think.
wow ! that’s an older version of Blender though … it’s probably for OpenGL compatibility reasons with the L5. remember the iGPU in the L5 is not a desktop class GPU although it can be used for learning and light tasks quite nicely. for a v1 it’s not bad at all imo.
purism@dogwood:~$ apt show blender
PureOS Amber is based on Debian Buster, so unless manually updated by PureOS or Librem 5 team it has the same versions of packages as current Debian Stable. There’s a good progress being made on preparations to switch to PureOS Byzantium though, which is based on Debian Bullseye, which is much fresher
