Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

I tried this again after updating the bios
usb is blinking and Ubuntu logo is alternating red and white dots.
I pressed fn 1 and got a screen. i was looking to see what it was doing but all it says is ... See screen shot.

This is more than i saw before.

 

I called support and they said they do nto support Linux on this device. Only windows.

 

I wish someone from Lenovo would speakup here.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

What a turd of an os every time I turn it on it needs to update. I have done nothing productive with this device since purchasing it.

Thats why I want Linux on it. this is insane .

 

Update. : called Lenovo agtain they wont support the device unless I give them more money ..

Not happening.

 

What a waste of time.

Never buying Lenovo again. total trud.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

Still no luck getting ANY Linux to run on this.

 

I was able to build my Lenovo R61 with Ubuntu just fine so I know the USB is good.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

You're right. Windows 10 in this machine is practically unusable. Every time you turn it on, the thing starts doing the windows update and you won't be able to use it for anything. Videos won't play without lagging, you can't open a browser without waiting for an hour.

Windows 10 sucks, especially in small laptops like this. On the other hand, now that I have Xubuntu running, I gotta tell you, it's 100 times better.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

After a lot of trial and error. I created the blog post based on that, exact steps.

 

Few things to note: I created the usb using etcher, and I installed the Ubuntu 18.04 Gnome edition,  (I installed xubuntu desktop environment). I had disabled secure boot.

 

I think that's it. Let me know if it helps you

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

This is the blog post : https://esc.sh/blog/linux-on-lenovo-miix-320/

 

I have installed the Gnome edition of Ubuntu, I think it's the same version as you tried. Later I replaced Gnome with XFCE (just install the xubuntu-desktop package).

 

If you check the comments on the blog post, you can see there are a few people who are also facing the same issue as you are. And there are people who made it work, with some issues with the camera/battery icon. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Re: Linux on Lenovo MiiX 320-10ICR

update. I was able to boot Xubuntu live usb.

This is progress. Now if I load Xubuntu can I load Ubuntu after the fact?

I read it uses the same repos.

but as i write this short lived joy. I just saw an error of "Sorry , Ubuntu 18.04 has experienced and internal error a bunch of code executable path /lib/systemd/systemd-journald package systemd 237-ubuntu10 problem type crash etc...

 

no way to save the full file. But the laptop is still running. sadly the lt crashed and kicked me out. locked the screen and rotated it. but at least it did boot.

 

update:
I have a Lenovo Miix 320. I loaded xubuntu live usb. I am getting errors about this driver and then my system hangs/crashes.
axp288_fuel_gauge axp288_fuel_guage: driver failed to report `charge_now` property: -6
axp288_fuel_gauge axp288_fuel_guage: capacity measurement not valid
axp288_fuel_gauge axp288_fuel_guage: Error reg 0xe2 contents not valid

Keep repeating over and over.
Is this something you can help with?
