I will work with forum admin to see in which way we can share the special bios to customers who use Linux as OS.

Re: Linux Only BIOS Update For Yoga 910?

Thanks so much for leaving this comment. I was close to returning this laptop but my faith is renewed that I can have arch setup successfully. I don't suppose you'd be willing to document your process? So far I have this reference but it's not very thorough. Two specific questions for you:

 

  1. Any idea at all how this is possible?
  2. What is your battery life? I'm getting insane 10-15 hours on the stock Windows 10, which is one of my main reasons for keeping it. Battery life is my top concern...

+1 for adding a bios option to toggle the function keys.

 

I would advise any linux user, especially if you are are developer, to avoid this laptop.

 

I love the form and performance of the Yoga 910, but keyboard is a real problem and the rate you write code is going to take hit.

 

I can adapt to left-ctrl key being in a non-standard location, and a significantly shrunken left-shift key -- I just have to avoid sudo until then.

 

But keyboard shortcuts are essential for me to produce lots of code fast. And where most involve a function key, having to add Fn to my combinations requires quite you to be a keyboard contortionist.

 

The designer might be surprised by this, but I'm not flying so many times in a day that Airplane Mode needs to be more accessible than the F7 key.
