Hi, I first want to say that I’ve received my Librem 13, and am so far quite satisfied with it; however, i have some significant issues with Pure OS.
First, when I tried to use the graphical installer after booting into the Live USB, it said the installation was successful, but the OS would not later boot. Then, I installed it using the latest snapshot (7/8/17) with the text installer, and it said that the kernel modules were missing, and therefore the install would probably fail. Lastly, I reverted to the 6/2/17 image, and it allowed me to install it and boot, but then I had two issues:
When I tried to use GNOME Classic, the Applications menu at the top was missing; I could only see the Places menu.
When I tried to use the regular GNOME DE, and tried to update the OS, I got an error that it could not locate the repository. During installation, I added the only mirror I could (Germany), so I thought that it should work.
Right now, I’m using Debian 9, as I have been unable to get Pure OS working. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
This was fixed in latest images AFAIK, which you didn’t manage to install.
Thanks for reporting all this. Unfortunately, I cannot give you any advice other than try Calamares Live install again, using the latest image. PureOS and its live ISO image is having some issues currently, but we are working on it. You can track some of the bugs on our tracker.
What kind of SSD this is: are your partitions listed as /dev/sda*, or /dev/nvme0n* ?
What is the exact coreboot version? You can check this by doing sudo apt-get install hardinfo (or you can just search “hardinfo” in the GNOME Software center application), launching that graphical application as root, then navigating to the “Devices > DMI” section to see the version number and build date.
My partitions are listed as /dev/sdX; here is my version of Coreboot (according to hardinfo):
Date : 06/23/2017
Vendor : coreboot
Version : 4.6-a86d1b-Purism-2
Name : Librem 13 v2
Vendor : Purism
According to https://tracker.pureos.net/T146, it is resolved, although I am experiencing the same problem with the iso I downloaded from the pureos.net downloads page. I have a 13 v2. Are there any ETA on when a working ISO will be up for download?
