Installation on ThinkPad X1 Extreme (2018)

I am trying to install Devuan on this model: https://psref.lenovo.com/Detail/ThinkPa … 20MF000TMZ

I tried the regular .iso and since I suspected graphic card issues the "minimal" image as well. For both, the process goes into some kind of loop after a while. See the attached (crappy, since the text size is tiny) pics. There is a message about pciehp_isr and xhci_hcd being unresponsive and an invalid bridge configuration on [bus00-00].

Things I did: Followed the Debian wiki about things to turn off in the BIOS. Tried to install latest Debian, which also goes into a loop, however on the message: rcu_sched detected stalls on CPUs/tasks. Tried latest Ubuntu live as well, which worked fine when using live image.

Any pointers will be appreciated.

Re: Installation on ThinkPad X1 Extreme (2018)

Which ISO image are you using? It's always best to provide the actual URL to avoid any ambiguity.

I think you'll need the beowulf beta for hardware that new.

Sorry about that. I tried devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_beta_amd64_desktop-live.iso

Re: Installation on ThinkPad X1 Extreme (2018)

The stick certainly predates USB3, however looking at the specs (PDF) it seems the ports on the laptop are all USB3. I could try to put the image on the stick that I used for the Ubuntu live image, though.

Re: Installation on ThinkPad X1 Extreme (2018)

After disabling Thunderbolt support in the pre-boot environment (BIOS) I was able to install Devuan (from a USB3 stick, IIRC). It booted fine initially, but after installing the non-free Nvidia drivers, the boot process stops at some point and all that shows is a blinking cursor. I can get a terminal with internet connectivity by using Ctrl+Alt+F2 though. I followed the Nvidia troubleshooting on the Debian wiki, but I haven't managed to get back to LXQt again since, even after purging nvidia-driver.

There is no apparent error message, other than this last line in syslog:
May  5 21:05:27 xyz connmand[2295]: IPv6 online check failed for 0x66002f48c132 tgv-99999

And the last line of user.log:
May  5 21:04:28 xyz pcscd: ccid_usb.c:1266:ControlUSB() control failed (1/4): -7 LIBUSB_ERROR_TIMEOUT

I couldn't find anything helpful to those in relation to my boot problem.

Any pointers?

Edit: It does seem, it can't find the Nvidia?

Remove that file.
