      Hi,

      Firstly thanks for all the work on this. It’s absolutely brilliant to be able to run Kali on the GPD pocket 🙂

      I’ve configured my GPD pocket dual boot with Windows. Latest current kernel and Kali updated.

      The problem is it won’t boot at all into either OS if power is connected.

      When I turn on it comes up with the GPD in the middle of the screen then nothing – no grub menu. If I disconnect power it’s fine – grub comes up and I can boot into either OS. Once in Windows I can then connect power and it will charge (or will charge if turned off completely) – but won’t charge in Kali (as per known issue I guess). Not the end of the world but means I have no way of running Kali except on battery.

      So looks like grub doesn’t like it when power is connected either. FYI power is provided via USB-C charger (UK version not original).

      I’ve not yet obtained a USB-C adapter to try that – will get one from Amazon next week.

      Thanks,

      Brian

      Hi Brian,

      you can install the latest 4.16.0 kernel. That one already supports plugging in the charger while it’s running.
      Touch is rotated 90 degrees after the latest gnome-shell upgrade but I’m working on a fix for that.

      Hope that helps,
