Will do! I've used both in the past, but found GBP's branching model confusing. Jonas and Matthias have recommendations so I hope to find something that works. :-)

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T451: Please update flashrom package.

Sorry, I haven't included my debian/ directory yet. I wanted to include a 'pristine' source. Of course I have added a patch, so it isn't pristine, but I wanted to get the source into salsa since there seems to be some movement with the ITA bug in Debian's bug tracker and hopefully we can all work with the same source.

Looks like you're booting the Purism Librem 13 v2 with a 4.17.0-3 Linux kernel. I'll see if I can find a machine to reproduce that error. In the mean time, would you try and boot from the latest live disk? https://pureos.net/download/ Instructions are here: https://tracker.pureos.net/w/installation_guide/live_system_installation

I've uploaded lastest flashrom code to salsa on debian.org; https://salsa.debian.org/jeremiah-guest/flashrom
Next step (happening now) is to build the package for PureOS and then share any useful artifacts with Debian maintainer.

Yes, that would be my advice. You can do a dist-upgrade anyway and try and fix your system if it gets in a misconfigured state, but that can be time consuming and difficult. Usually with ten days or so that type of package conflict goes away as new software and bug fixes come into the repos.

So, there is a kernel panic because the kernel can't seem to find a file system to mount. How did you install GNOME? Did you use a USB stick or an ISO or similar? Or are you using apt-get or some other means?

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T661: appstreamcli reporting GLib-CRITICAL error.

The Librem's have a version that I think represents the physical device on that back, one of my Librems says "Librem 13, version 3." If you want to find the software version, or version of the overall OS, try this command (you may have to install inxi);

$ inxi -Fxrz

Which on my system produces;

You can see from output above that I'm running a 4.18 kernel. My distro is PureOS that is based on Debian Buster / Sid (so testing) and that my repos are PureOS 'green' mixed with Debian stretch. In the "Machine:" line I note that the coreboot version is 4.78-Purism-4 from 03/20/2018. I don't know where can find the date PureOS "green" and green may be a rolling release which means that the userland packages (and kernel potentially) are updated continually.

This is not so surprising for a 'dist-upgrade'. I don't know if you want to do the dist-upgrade or not, perhaps you need those important packages and don't want them removed, but if you like you can try just doing a regular apt upgrade that will not be as invasive.
