Re: Yoga 900/910 Survey: Which Linux distro are you running?

Yoga 900:

 

- Debian (ParrotOS -- https://www.parrotsec.org/features.fx)

 

- Pro's: everything works, wifi, trackpad, touch screen etc. During install it won't see wifi but after the install reboot and it will. 

 

- Con's:  none really, even if you don't need security tools they have a Parrot OS edition without the tools.

 

 

Before installing Parrot I had tried Debian stable and nothing worked (not even video, just a black screen)

 

 

I do wish Lenovo would make Linux drivers available for download however, it's very difficult otherwise as most distro's don't contain proprietary drivers and it's hard to figure out what you need exactly.

Not to derail the thread, but can anyone tell me if you can dual boot linux with the installed Windows on Yoga 900? If so, how do you do that after the recent BIOS update from Lenovo?

Arch Linux

 

# Pros

* Touchscreen works well (w/ libinput, haven't tried evdev), and it's easy enough to flip the screen and input to go into a simple tent or tablet mode.

* Everything else, except...

 

# Cons / Problems

* Intermittent kernel panics on suspend (not on resume). This is a biggie IMO. I've put some time into debugging this, but so far no luck. No difference when using any recent linux or linux-lts kernel.

Yes, I am using Mint on a Yoga, though its the 300 model.

 

See here for a short list of what works and doesn't:
