Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

I'll be running through this tonight:

https://01.org/linuxgraphics/documentation/build-guide-0

 

and then trying to report an issue on it if no luck.  I'll update here with any details.

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

I have submitted a bug report:

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109267

 

Feel free to add info.  I was unable to get booting using the drm-tip kernel, I think because of trying to boot from emmc.  If anyone knows how to enable that module and is willing to tell me, I'm happy to recompile and try again.

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

I have now submitted kernel logs for drm-tip and submitted.  Hopefully someone replies.

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

Awesome, I wish I had a bit better knowledge I would have liked to had done a bit more.

Hopefully someone can look into it and get it sorted, though sideways ubuntu is still more user friendly than windows 10.

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

I thought to let you all know how linux runs on this device.

 

Device: D330 with N5000 processor, 4Gb ram, 128Gb storage, FullHD screen, no lte.

 

I made the precondition to remove secure boot in the BIOS. You get in the bios by pressing Fn-F2 multiple times at bootup. I could select bootdevice by pressing Fn-F12 multiple times at bootup.

 

I first tried fedora 29 as I prefer the gnome interface on small laptops and 2in1's. I got the scrambled screen. No fidling with the grub parameters helped. Ubuntu all showed the same problems that where mentions above.

 

My desktop pc runs linux mint 19.1. So of course, mint would be a good alternative option. And lo an behold. The live image booted strait to the desktop. I did have some troubles running the install. This would give a errno 5. I checked my MD5 hash of the image and everything seemed ok. The installer also did not find any errors on the usbstick. Not giving up. Something I could not do by now, as I had already wiped the default windows install! I tried with an other usbstick. And yes, this one completed the boot, install and reboot.

 

On first boot all was ok, except the orientation of the screen. I solved this by pressing the windowskey->display->orientation->clockwise90. Testing the device, I also found that closing the lid did not suspend the laptop. I solved this by going to settings, opening the energy applet, and in extra options I selected that the action of closing the lid should also happen when external displays are connected. I also noticed that the screen does not rotate when using the device in tablet mode. I have not looked into this. I also noticed that, while the touchscreen works, it is way off. It probably thinks we are still in portrait while in landscape.

 

What works out of the box:

* battery indication + charging indication

* Suspend using button

* Audio

* Wifi network

* Keyboard dock

 

What needed some help:

* Display orientation

* Suspend closing lid

 

What still has to be fixed:

* Orientation sensor

* Touch screen orientation

 

For me, with linux mint 19.1, it is already a good small laptop on the go. At the moment I can't really use it as a tablet. But once the other issues are remedied in future versions of fedora/ubuntu it will rock. Well done, Lenovo!

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

Configuring the automatic orientation is described in the 4th reply on the first page. It fixed the touchscreen problems as well

I'm have almost the same spec as you (except I only have the HD not FHD screen).

 

When you installed Linux Mint 19.1, did you set your gfxpayload and nomodeset ? I could only make Linux Mint boot with gfxpayload=800x1280 (i assume you used 1200x1900) and nomodeset.

 

However, after installation, I'm not sure if it would work without nomodset.

Re: Linux on Ideapad D330

I think throughout the thread it's been narrowed down to the D330 with the Celeron N4000 and the 1280*800 display. The version with the Celeron N5000 with full HD display seems to work, albiet with a bit of playing around for certain things.

 

It doesn'y help they are all just referred to as the D330, In Australia the only D330 model available is the version with N4000 CPU low res display and 32GB MMC storage

Hi,

 

I have the Intel N5000 (Pentium Silver), and an HD (NOT Full HD) and I'm also having problems. I guess the problem is with the display and not the CPU.

 

This is the only model for sale (at least when I bought one) here in the Philipppines. I guess I'll stick with Windows 10 for a while and make do with WSL.

 No, not on Linux Mint 19.1. Live media booted strait. I did not edit any grub parameters. But, as has been said. It seems that the FullHD devices go easier.
