I am installing Qubes Stable (4.0.3) on my new laptop.
During this install and after the install, I encounter:
- “gliding windows”
- mouse moving jerkily
- .5 sec delay at each keystroke
Basically, it’s Qubes on slow motion.
Happy to upload two small videos to illustrate if useful. (Is there a preferred method/place?)
What I have tried so far
Tails runs normally on the laptop without slow motions.
Disable the Nvidia Graphic card
I wondered if my problem could be related to my graphic card and
Nvidia is well-known to cause troubles with Qubes and
I saw these lines from dom0 →
[ 5.897636] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: unknown chipset (166000a1)
[ 5.897643] nouveau: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed with error -12
nouveau.modeset=0 rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau video=vesa:off at the end of line beginning with
kernel=vmlinuz... in the file /bot/efi/EFI/qubes/xen.cfg, then rebooted.
It did not help the situation.
- my laptop is brand new
- the documentation (Installing and updating software in dom0 | Qubes OS) says that
kernel-latestmay be useful for troubleshooting newer hardware,
I typed in dom0:
sudo qubes-dom0-update kernel-latest and then rebooted.
It didn’t solve the problem.
I have difficulties discerning which errors in the log files (
dmesg) are relevant and which are not.
Should I post any log file here? Which one(s) would help? Which part?
How can I go forward?
How to pinpoint the problem?
Where/what should I look for to start with?
Your help is very much appreciated!!
