Re:X1 Carbon Gen 8 with Fedora now live on the site

Hi

 

@Loesje  & @Janianova - I'm still confirming but apparently it should be possible to place orders using the phone number even if the system isn't on the webpage., If anybody tries it and has success please report back. I just found out about part shortages on the P1G2 myself yesteryday - and yes, it's very frustrating. I will note that the P1G3 will have Linux support (Ubuntu and Fedora) and we're working on bringing that forward as much as we can to cover the gap. 

 

@TomCr00se69 - I'm getting a 4k monitor soon myself to test with as we're seeing increasingly customers using it. It should work and I'll see if I can find out to confirm....

 

@Iluha - Currently Fedora on the T14 isn't planned (Intel or AMD). I've seen a lot of demand for it though which I'm passing on. As a note I do have tried Fedora  on my T14 AMD and the biggest issue is the microphone isn't working - I know there is still work going on upstream to get that fixes so hopefully that will all flow down once it is fixed.

 

Mark

Hi Mark,

 

mic didn't work for me in Fedora on T14s (AMD) on the older kernels 5.6.x/5.7.x, but it is working now with the current kernel (5.8.4).

 

It still would be great to have an official support of Fedora (or at least some other distro) on this hardware :)

Hi - we are doing Ubuntu certification on this platform. I think you're seeing the work from that as there have been upstream fixes going in for the AMD audio. I believe I saw some alsa patches as well so you might want to keep an eye out for updates there - but if it's working that's great :) Mark

Just wanted to chime in and say I just ordered a P1 Gen 3 with the i9-10885H, and the 4K IPS display. When you confirmed the Gen 3 is getting official Linux support I could finally go ahead and make the purchase. Hoping power management, finger print scanner, and everything else gets working well :)

 

Super excited! Thanks for the significant efforts you're putting into this!
