Hi Bencarp
Did you had any problems with trackpad? I remember I had quite a challenge to setup that in Linux.
Thanks for help

Hi there,
Yes, in fact, this issue I've encountered not only with qubes but with all major Linux distributions I have installed so far on the Yoga 900.

Workaround: Install a custom kernel implementing the following small change

Add in the line
dev->sda_hold_time = 30;

In /drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-designware-platdrv.c

After
dw_i2c_acpi_params(pdev, "FMCN"... sda_hold_time);
It's somewhere around line 130 if I remember correctly

Compile and install the custom kernel in qubes according to the official guide at https://qubes-os.org/doc/managing-vm-kernel

Hope this helps!
Ben

If you were able to get the wifi working on the Lenovo, please post back how? I tried:

sudo -i
echo "blacklist ideapad-laptop" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exit

To no avail. Thanks.

Hi Ben

Thanks for quick reply.
Did you had any other issue with installation?
I don't know why but I'm getting message that "platform device creation failed -16"
I process to installation anyway and it stops around in the half way.

I changed already USB stick and I'm getting same issue so I wonder is that maybe a hardware fault ?

About Wifi It's working for me but I don't remember exactly how I done that because it took me few days altogether with track-pad.
I know I fallowed users advise from that site:

Hi,
No, with Qubes 3.2 everything except for the touchpad (and the touchscreen, which I don't use because gnome doesn't really play nice with qubes in my experience) worked out of the box, including the Wifi.

It was different with 3.1, however, I had to make several tweaks before it even booted and when it did, it would only work with the legacy BIOS mode. Wifi didn't work then either.

I haven't installed qubes to the internal ssd though, but only to a second USB stick with 128gb, so maybe that could be part of your problem.
