Can’t upload files yet, but the Tuxedo Aura Gen1 does work with Qubes if you are willing to do a few things. First I’m pretty sure I had to update the BIOS which allowed for some advanced settings. In one of the AMD tabs, there is the “NBIO” setting which can be used to enable IOMMU.
I had some stability issues due to the Auras horrendous fan control. Workaround: Disable CPM and set performance mode to “Quiet” in the BIOS.
This allows my device to idle around 55 degrees Celsius. More testing required.
Update: After updating to kernel-latest the stability issues seem to have subsided. There are still some issues with the fan control - it can be done in BIOS (i.e. setting medium to 75C and fan to 80 or such) but it’s not very good.
I don’t want to install an electron app using npm in dom0 however.
