I recently found my old Jolla Phone again. I read that sailfish support for that device expired, but maybe there’s still something i can do with it.
What i’ve done so far: I enabled developer mode to get ssh access, installed sudo with pkcon to be able to first ‘sudo su’, set a password and then ‘su’, took nemo out of sudoers again via drop in file in sudoers.d. After realizing that the jolla store has some troubles i started updating. 2 Updates worked, but after the last update some issues appeared. It basically works like before but i can’t see the basic app icons on main screen as well as a few icons on the applications screen (the apps still work when i tap on the place where the icons used to be).
According to the ssh-greeting-line ‘SailfishOS 184.108.40.206 (Yliaavanlampi) (armv7hl)’ is currently running.
The last few lines from /var/log/zypp/history are:
# 2023-05-26 22:36:07 elfutils-libelf-0.156-1.3.4.armv7hl.rpm install failed # rpm output: # rpm: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.17' not found (required by /lib/libdb-4.8.so)
I can’t tell what exactly went wrong during the most recent update but i was hoping that a retry via command line would solve the problem. I opened the terminal app, and ran ‘devel-su’ and ‘version --dup’. The App seems to be stuck with ‘REFRESHING CACHE’ for the last 30 minutes. What damage could interrupting the process most likely cause in this state?
Does anybody have a hint on how to catch up with sailfish updates if possible?
