PureOS Install?

Has anyone tried to install PureOS on a Framework laptop?

I haven’t, but providing the kernel is up to date (>5.11) it should just run. To get the fingerprint sensor working, you need to have a libfprint version of >1.92.0

PureOS will not download non-free software by default, expect multiple things to be broken upon install

I doubt WiFi will work and I can’t imagine anything else requiring non-free drivers to work either, idk if the camera, microphone or fingerprint sensor require this

Wifi won’t work, AX210 drivers are proprietary or use proprietary blobs.


Has there been any update regarding this OS? I’m farily new to Linux but I am interested in this specific OS to run on my framwork.

@Arizona_Dahlman Not really. The issues with the OS are intrinsic and will not be fixed. Anything that requires non-free software will be broken on install, that will always be true so long as the distro is FSF-endorsed. If you want something that offers something similar while not being so hostile to non-free software, grab a copy of Debian.
