After performing the latest updates repowerd fails to start form me. Thus i.e. standby on close does not work any more.

However, I cannot find any information on libubuntu_application_api_touch_mirclient.so. It looks like recently this got used by (at least it worked before) libubuntu_application_api.so.

root@gemini:/usr/lib/aarch64-linux-gnu# egrep -r touch_mirclient
Binary file libubuntu_application_api.so.3.0.0 matches

One of these updates seems to have caused the problem:

Is anybody else facing the same problem? Ideas how to fix or where to get the missing lib (assuming it is the cause)?


12 Nov 2018
After recent upgrades (maybe xorg, maybe repowerd, maybe whatsoever) and a reboot sddm gives a core dump on my gemini (stays at the penguin logo). No useful info in logs. Anybody else experiencing the same? What might have happened?

21 Jun 2018
I don't know exactly what happened and am a bit hopeless now. Maybe after flashing a kernel, maybe after trying to get a mobile connection with linux (ofono) the modem stopped working. System information in Android shows no sim cards (also not the esim), no IMEI numbers and baseband version is unknown.

Already tried full reflash and restoring the nvram backup.

Anybody else also experienced this? How to find out if the modem is broken or just the IMEI numbers are lost? Any ideas for recovery? Maybe using SN Writer (https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-12306.html) if it is just the IMEIs? This requires two database files (MD1_DB and AP_DB) which should be part of the ROM. Where to find these files? Other ideas?

Has already someone tried to use a 3rd party USB3 hub? Does ist work?
2 Mar 2018
has anybody already performed a speed test (i.e. hdparm -t) with the geminis micro sd interface?

I am currently thinking about which kind of card to use with the gemini. From my point of view there are two options:

1. Use a high endurance card to ensure it lasts a while.
These seem to max out at 64GB and 20MB/s (read with hdparm). At least this is what I have been able to get out of the Sandisk one with my laptop.

2. Use a high performance / larger card

Any thoughts/experiences on that? Are there other high enduarance cards which are larger/support higher speeds.
