Hi,

I have some initial comments about Qubes 4.0rc3 on Lenovo Thinkpad X1
Carbon 5th gen. I'll dig further into issues listed below. But for now I
wouldn't call it "works out of the box", unfortunately :/

- EFI installer do not boot - gets back into grub instantly, /noexitboot
/mapbs do not help
- legacy mode install works fine (although I've noticed small graphics
glithes once or twice)
- at next boot grub is horribly slow (you can see drawing each char)
- system starts with default kernel (4.9.56)
- trackpoint/touchpad do not work:

psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost sync at byte 1
psmouse serio1: issuing reconnect request
psmouse serio1: synaptics: queried max coordinates: x [..5678], y [..4758]
psmouse serio1: synaptics: queried min coordinates: x [1266..], y [1094..]

- suspend: hang on suspend (green light flash quickly)

Next step: upgrade dom0 (only!) kernel to 4.14.6
(https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-linux-kernel/pull/13). You need to
build it yourself, there is no
binary package available, yet.

Then add iwlmvm and iwlwifi to /rw/config/suspend-module-backlist in sys-net

- this fixed suspend issue, wireless also works after suspend
- touchpad/trackpoint still do not work

Other issues:
- https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/3108


Untested:
- mic
- camera
- ethernet
- thunderbolt (and do not plan to)
- WiGig (does it even have Linux support?)
- bluetooth
- NFC
- fingerprint reader (do not plan to test)

Attached hardware info.

Fixed by adding psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 dom0 kernel parameter
(available in 4.14+).

Did you (or anyone else) ever figure out how to fix the suspend/resume issues? I'm seeing that issue on my X1 Carbon 6th gen (qubes 4.0). Install worked smoothly with EFI. My HCL post: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/qubes-users/QrG7uUZsSZY

How do you add psmouse.synaptics_intertouch=1 to the dom0 kernel parameter?
