I can't make Google Play Books work, any ideas on what could be causing the trouble? I might downgrade to an older version of the app to use it.

I managed to use the lastest version by uninstalling the app, installing an older version from apkmirror and then upgrading to a newer .apk from apkmirror.

I love to use Lineage 14.1 on antique/ancient hardware like fire 7 (here ford). Thanks a lot!
It works absolute flawlessly but as always there's some drawbacks.

1.) After a while since system boot-up, autorotate stops working. I noticed this a even a year or two before.
No autorotate until an other reboot.
2.) In comparison to Lineage 12.1 the battery- drainage is ridiculous/fatal.
I own two ford-devices and while battery-standby of 14.1's device is hardly 2 days, the 12.1's device has "standby-times" of 14 days easily! Even this behaviour I noticed in ROMs 1-2 years ago.

I wished so much this drawbacks could be solved - this ROM would be nearly perfect!

I have 2 tablets with this same rom and have the exact same issue, both of them lose connection to Wifi when not plugged into anything, if I have it charging or connected to my machine then it is all good. any ideas?

Is this when they are actively being used, or when the screen is off in some standby mode? I have other android devices that lose wifi when in a battery saver mode, and the screen is off, but typically I haven't seen this on any Fire I've used.

What model and OS build are you using? Any other details?

when used, yes. ford model, the 14.1 build from this discussion, from Feb.

this has been an issue before, but it always seemed to fix when there would be a new release, not sure why it is happening.

Alright, so I noticed that my tablet is being sluggish and found a way to solve it, which involve creating a swap space on SD card. However, I'm still confused about how to properly do that and also wonder if it's even possible to use the card as both internal storage and swap space. Can anyone help me with this issue? Any help would be appreciated, thanks
Edit: So after some research it turned out that I could just use internal storage to create swap space as well, but I still have a question: Should I use internal or SD card storage for swap, and what are the advantages and downsides to each of those above?

I updated to the lineage-14.1-20220205 build for Austin and the camera still doesn't work. I got the camera to work on the lineage-14.1-20210117 build with grayster's patch but not on the latest build. Am I missing some step? I clear the system and cache space before performing the update.

Thanks

Each time I have had issues with the camera (especially when major update) I needed to format /data and it worked again

I also can't access those links, but there exist different ones that I'm using for postmarketOS and other GNU/Linux distros: https://github.com/hexdump0815/linux-amazon-mediatek-mt8127-kernel-source/tree/austin-main

This kernel is still on the original 3.10.54 version, and not the 3.10.108+ one used for this ROM.

I still managed to find the original repositories by GitHub search:

Can anyone advise on the settings for forcedoze that should be used? My tablet has root enabled, forcedoze is not doing what's expected, tablet not dozing on the default settings with forcedoze enabled.
