Librem 5 System Images¶
The Continuous Integration (CI) system builds several images categorized by “os”, “board” and “kernel freshness” available from the Image Builds page.
When searching for images to use, please ensure that you choose the correct one for the hardware you are using.
This describes the GNU/Linux distribution used for the image, and especially the user space components:
buster+ci: Debian Buster plus packages of our software that is built on commit. This contains the most recent changes and can break at any time.
amberplus packages of releases of our software. This is mostly useful for testing newly built packages before they become available in the
amberplus packages of our software that waited 6 days in
amber-phone-stagingand that have all dependencies fulfilled in
amber-phone. This is expected to contain more mature, robust software.
amber-phone and in
amber-phone-staging should be marked as found in the respective releases:
Images are built for three different hardware platforms:
devkit: the Librem 5 development kit
librem5: the Librem 5 phone

Users of qemu on workstation hardware (typically
amd64) should use
This indicates the stability of the kernel used in the image:
next: experimental kernel
current: the kernel that should currently be used
legacy: an old kernel, kept around to diagnose regressions
plain: the plain kernel from the Debian/PureOS archive
Generally, users looking for a stable experience should use images with
current kernels. Those looking to fix problems with the kernel itself will probably use images with
