ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> I really want to test Convergence πŸ˜„11:29
ubptgbot<Javacookies> @MrCoolAndroid [I really want to test Convergence πŸ˜„], you mean, connecting to external display? … convergence is a broad word in this community 😝11:30
ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> Yeah11:31
ubptgbot<Javacookies> best device for that would be Nexus 5 since it supports wired external display support11:36
ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> And there's a way to connect to a external display via WiFi?11:37
ubptgbot<Javacookies> yes, but only few devices where it actually works. I believe it doesn't work on nexus 5. Also, it won't be a good experience anyway since there'll be too much input lag. It's only good for media consumption.11:46

ubptgbot<fredldotme> Generally, only ports with Android 5.0 and up are capable of streaming their display via Aethercast. I'm not sure if Nexus 5 falls into that category.11:51

ubptgbot<fredldotme> @MrCoolAndroid [If I make a port of my device... It have Android 8.1], You should probably work on Halium 9.0 then, if you really want to port your device. Which device is that?11:55

ubptgbot<fredldotme> Sadly, I don't have the hardware to look at it myself11:58

ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> @fredldotme [Is there a LineageOS 16.0 port available for it?], I don't think so, this device doesn't have too much custom ROMs12:00
ubptgbot<Danfro> @fredldotme [Sadly, I don't have the hardware to look at it myself], Me too. πŸ˜† Need to visit people with a TV or try the big one at work. But on the plus side, its a toy and nothing crucial. So I can wait or live without it.12:02
ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> @fredldotme [Is there a LineageOS 16.0 port available for it?], I don't think it's possible but, it's possible to dual boot with Android?12:03
ubptgbot<fredldotme> We currently have no plans to support dual booting. This requires a lot of work.12:07
ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> Ok no problem12:07

Besides that and the Libertine container's rootfs, otherwise nothing much worth botherin15:47
ubptgbotg to retain.15:47
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> Ok now I'm going to upgrade this tablet to OTA-12, give that a quick spin, try out Anbox on the M10, then flash it to Android. It was definitely my Old Faithful for over three years :) but has been superseded by a newer model with better storage and an uncracked screen.15:48
ubptgbot<MrCoolAndroid> @MrCoolAndroid [That means I can install it on a computer, or run it on Live USB?], Someone knows?15:56
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> I'm just going to say I'm trying the App Drawer for the first time with an open mind, let's see how this goes.16:14
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> Not too shabby for starters.16:18
ubptgbot<Javacookies> give it time. it'll grow on you and think of it as a child that will grow with time πŸ˜‰16:28
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> I don't really have complaints so far :)16:28
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> This will only be a preview though, might take a lot longer for my main devices to be upgraded.16:29
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> Tested and it looks like individual tab histories in Morph are still absent. I hope that will come in a QOL OTA, maybe 13 or 14?16:31
ubptgbot<Javacookies> if you often use a physical keyboard on your tablet then you'll love the app drawer16:32

ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> I do often use a keyboard so awesome then. Not sure if I can pull up the OSK though, need to play around with that.16:33
ubptgbot<Nspire> (Photo, 1280x830) https://irc.ubports.com/2sT7cuWq.png Does Someone know how to make the root partition bigger by using the userdata?16:33
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> No. Say you have Tab A at Reddit, navigate forward to Facebook, then to Google. Close Morph. Tab A will only keep the Google page in it's history. It needs to keep all of those browsed sites so we can navigate between the history. Maybe there was a bunch of articles on Reddit we want to go back to later.16:34
ubptgbot<TartanSpartan> (and that's why I *still* hold on to the legacy browser in my new M10 ;) )16:34

ubptgbot<Javacookies> @TartanSpartan [I do often use a keyboard so awesome then. Not sure if I can pull up the OSK tho …], there's an option to enable OSK even while a physical keyboard is connected. It's in the `Language & Text` or the keyboard icon in the login screen πŸ˜‰16:39
ubptgbot<Javacookies> @TartanSpartan [No. Say you have Tab A at Reddit, navigate forward to Facebook, then to Google. …], oh I see, the feature was implemented in the old browser? didn't know that. That's necessary feature indeed16:40

ubptgbot<Javacookies> @Nspire [It is the oneplus one(codename:Bacon)], okay not sure if is similar to Nexus 5 but if you know what you are doing and know the risks. OTA updates may not work OR overwrite all your changes in the root and so on then I'll give a link in the forum. I believe there's one with commands16:44

ubptgbot<Nspire> @dohbee [why do you think you need to resize the rootfs?], So installiert more packages an Anbox21:00
ubptgbot<dohbee> @Nspire [So installiert more packages an Anbox], apt is not a generally supported method for installing things in UT. Libertine is the supported method for installing legacy apps and CLI tools if you need them. You shouldn't need to resize the image to install anbox either21:03
ubptgbot<Nspire> @dohbee [apt is not a generally supported method for installing things in UT. Libertine i …], Yes, but last time i just installed Anbox und some packages in Libertine an the root partition get 99% filled and from that point much stuff didn't work.21:06
ubptgbot<dohbee> @Nspire [Yes, but last time i just installed Anbox und some packages in Libertine an the …], libertine doesn't install things in the root partition, it's a container. also, anbox is itself not very large, so will fit fine. the root image is already pretty much full as it is. You can bind mount apt cache and lib dirs to have that written ou21:10
ubptgbottside the rootfs, which will avoid immediately running out of space, or just download the deb for setting up anbox and use `dpkg -i` to install. the android image itself used by anbox is not in rootfs either.21:10
ubptgbot<dohbee> anbox is quite experimental, and libertine is also still pretty experimental, so things breaking were probably more related to that than the loopback image itself being "full"21:11
ubptgbot<Nspire> @dohbee [libertine doesn't install things in the root partition, it's a container. also, …], But why can't I just reduce the size of userdata to get more storage available for any partition which went out of memory?21:15
ubptgbot<dohbee> @Nspire [But why can't I just reduce the size of userdata to get more storage available f …], you can do whatever you want of course, but it's not supported, and will cause problems with updates and such. the rootfs is readonly for a reason21:16
ubptgbot<Nspire> But what is the reason for that big userdata partition?21:17
ubptgbot<Nspire> Maybe there is something what I didn't get now.😁21:18

ubptgbot<dohbee> @Nspire [But what is the reason for that big userdata partition?], for storing your data?21:31
