Re: ThinkPad E485/E585 - Firmware bug ACPI IVRS table

Ubuntu 19.04

Kernel 5.1.11

BIOS 1.52

Re: ThinkPad E485/E585 - Firmware bug ACPI IVRS table

with the help of followin instructions :

https://medium.com/@jthegedus/ubuntu-18-04-lts-on-lenovo-thinkpad-e485-15e1d601473f

 

i was finally able to install Ubuntu Mate 18.04. 

Other ubuntu versions 16.04 18.04 19.x  or other flavours like Linux mint 19, Elementary, etc are not working for my E485 laptop which has Ryzen 7 2700.

 

finally settled with Ubuntu Mate 18.04. 

I request Lenovo to come up with the new rectified BIOS asap. 

Thanks.

But once in a while while running Eclipse or in general working the machine hangs, we PowerON again.
regarding the sleep and wake, we have do not used that mode and we have not tested it yet.

Re: ThinkPad E485/E585 - Firmware bug ACPI IVRS table

This new BIOS 1.53 comes as a disappointment since it only includes some unspecified security fix.

 

We have a number of E585 machines running linux and we have an open ticket about the IVRS issues. The next BIOS was supposed to include a fix for the IVRS table. I tested this new BIOS and linux will still not boot past the GRUB without an additional parameter in the linux command to address the IVRS bug.

 

But I can confirm that the machines are running correctly under Ubuntu Mate 19.04 (disco dingo) with the single following GRUB linux command parameter "ivrs_ioapic[32]=00:14:0" (added after "quiet splash", needed both when installing and afterwards by editing the grub config).

 

We previously tried Linux Mint 19.1 Mate and we experienced issues that could not be fixed by any means we tried (various GRUB params, various 5.x and 4.x kernels, padoka ppa etc.).The machines would randomly freeze (mouse pointer still moving but mouse and keyboard input unresponsive, hard reset needed) and/or not come back from sleep (black screen, hard reset needed).

To be honest, would've I knew that Linux and the E485/585 will become a never ending thing like that - Then I wouldn't have buy one.

Interesting about the IVRS table entry.  I'm on Arch and I haven't had to use that in months (since the kernel reached 5.0 I believe).

Wait, you can install arch on this without any additional parameters? I think I might switch then. Do you think other Arch based distritos are the same too? I'm on Pop_OS and I have to add the parameter to my loader.conf every update and every time I boot into the live CD

No, not really sure why he's talking about but on Arch/Manjaro I've always had to use the ioapic parameter to get it working
