Re: Linux status of Fibocom L850-Gl

If that just a matter of  simple (wink!) BIOS update - we NEED THIS - Lenovo!

I'd love to use my X1 with built-in LTE, but since I can not stand Windows - LTE and finger scanner are dead parts from the beginning. Shame, my other machine (Dell XPS 13) runs 100% hardware under Linux with silky smoothness.

Thank you for your tweet to Lenovo support on behalf of all of us. I hope they will find a solution ASAP.

@NikosAlexandris

 

Did Lenovo ever write you back after they passed along your message?  Hoping Lenovo makes this small adjustment soon!

Re: Linux status of Fibocom L850-Gl

@rushforth No, everything is in the twitter thread. This module concerns a couple of devices, more than 10 if I remember well. Linux users are indeed a minuscule minority compared to Windows users. Still writing and testing and releasing such an updated BIOS, shouldn't be such a big cost for Lenovo. Or is it?
