Linux-powered PinePhone Pro shows off faster performance in first official demo

Filed under

Pine64 has been selling ARM-powered Linux devices for years, such as the PinePhone, a low-end smartphone with a (mostly) open hardware and software design. The PinePhone Pro was announced last month as an upgraded model with improved hardware, and even though the initial model for developers isn’t shipping yet, the phone has now been shown off on video by Pine64.

Lukasz Erecinski, Community Manager at Pine64, shared his impressions of the phone in the company’s November update article. “Obviously everything I am about to write is fundamentally biased,” he said, “but I will stand by every word I write – no PR-speak, I promise. The device is fast, very fast when compared to the original PinePhone and other similar devices.” Erecinski recorded a short video of the phone, where it appears to be (roughly) as responsive as a modern mid-range Android phone.

  • PinePhone’s official keyboard add-on will turn it into a tiny Linux PC

    Pine64 is a tech company that has been selling Linux-powered hardware for years, including the entry-level PinePhone and upcoming PinePhone Pro. An official keyboard add-on for the PinePhone and PinePhone Pro has been in development for months, as Pine64 and its community work together on the best-possible design, and now it’s nearly ready for production.

    Lukasz Erecinski, Community Manager at Pine64, revealed in the company’s November update blog post that the PinePhone Keyboard will be released next month for just $49.95. A last-minute adjustment to the keyboard’s membrane material caused the release date to slip to December, but the company said in the post, “we want to make sure to both account for developers’ feedback and to deliver the best possible PinePhone (Pro) keyboard that is possible.”

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
