Bliss OS 14.3 - 06.26.21 Updates

Bliss OS 14.3 - Generic Build

Since the last update, we have confirmed ARM64 emulation through ChromeOS v91's Houdini, and we have also fixed a number of DRM and Widevine problems, so apps that use those are also working now.
I also spent a good amount of time updating the new documentation site: https://docs.blissos.org and adding some troubleshooting tips and guides.
The build I am uploading today will not include Gearlock (no real reason, just didn't select it to include) so I will likely make another update with this combo kernel/mesa including Gearlock later in the week.

Updates Overview:

  • kernel-5.10.46
  • Updated Mesa 21.1.3
  • Updates for Intel graphics
  • Lots more, check the changelog

!!WARNING!! The builds that use Kernel-5.2+ are no longer compatible with the AUTO_LOAD=old kernel command line option. If you are using this option to boot, then you will not be able to. It will bootloop.

PLEASE NOTE I recommend everyone testing to also use this in Vulkan mode or boot using gbm_gralloc (which is now the default). Vulkan mode can be done from the Advanced grub menu if you installed using the bootable installer, or if you used a different grub, you will want to add "VULKAN=1" to the grub entry before the word "quiet". If your device doesn't support Vulkan, you can add "GRALLOC=gbm" to the same place in your grub entry. Sleep states should work fine after that.
Other bootloop issues can also be solved by booting with GRALLOC=gbm command -line option.

Known new issues:

  • Sleep states aren't working right on a few machines. Some can cause SystemUI to restart.
