Porteus on Pinephone When?

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Porteus on Pinephone When?

When will the most
space efficient`
secure and
user friendly variant of linux
be available on a Smartphone?

Has anybody given this a thought as a viable option?
According to every review I ve read so far, all the available
distros tested are either geeky, laggy, buggy, and / or unstable.
Curiously hoping.

Porteus on Pinephone When?

:) thanks for the kind words
while there's some work done for ARM: Porteus-ARM (not specifically pinephone cortex-A53, i think)
and that has ceased for the moment too..
currently there's no development that i'm aware of to do a porteus style phone port ..
personally, if i had a pinephone (or any other suitable hardware), i'd be checking out Postmarket0S https://postmarketos.org/
based on Alpine Linux, which your description could just as easily fit :)
