We are testing Qubes on our new laptop model.
Successfully installation and successfull boot of Qubes R2, but it has
not been extensively tested yet. VT-x and VT-d are active, but TPM has
not been tested.
Wired networking is working (wireless not tested yet).
One problem we encountered is when assigning the USB pci-bus to an
AppVM. When we start the AppVM, it breaks the xhci seems to breaks.
In the AppVM dmesg shows an error very similar to the following :
[ 30.560041] ehci_hcd: USB 2.0 'Enhanced' Host Controller (EHCI) Driver
[ 30.560409] ehci_hcd 0000:00:00.0: device not available (can't reserve [mem 0xf162a000-0xf162a3ff])
[ 30.560565] ehci_hcd 0000:00:01.0: device not available (can't reserve [mem 0xf1629000-0xf16293ff])
(found in ticket https://qubes-os.org/ticket/521
It should be noted that:
- The AppVM uses the default kernel options (nopat iommu=soft swiotlb=4096)
- It is the same with the 3.17 kernel (by enabling the unstable repository)
- Memory balancing has been disabled on the AppVM
Should the ticket 521 be reopened ?
