I got a new ThinkPad P15 Gen 2:
1x 11th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-11800H Processor(Core™ i7-11800H)
1x Bluetooth® 5.0 or above; Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 2x2 AX
1x Ethernet; Combo audio/microphone jack; HDMI 2.0; 1 Power button; 2x TBT (DP 1.4
USB 3.2 Gen2); 2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Type A); SIM Card (Nano SIM)
1x 720P HD with Dual Array Microphone & ThinkShutter
1x NVIDIA RTX A2000 4GB
As with a similar (even beefier) model https://www.qubes-os.org/hcl/#lenovo_thinkpad-p15-gen2-20yq004fus_i9-11950h_tiger-lake_integrated-graphics-uhd-rtx-a4000-mobile most things appear to work.
I had to disable Bluetooth in the BIOS, the system will only boot with hybrid and not discrete graphics, and WiFi required the fixed mentioned in above HCL entry.
Various reports seem to indicated, that USB-C docking stations have been found working (with reduced speed?) but I do not seem to be able to get the ThinkPad USB-C Dock Gen2 to jive with the system: neither web nor external screens work. Plugging it in does not do anything to
udevadmin in either
As the laptop’s HDMI port also does not work (likely due to being hardwired to the NVDIA card), I currently have no means of setting up multiple screens.
I want to use Qubes and this machine as my daily driver and non functioning dock as well as the lack of a multiple screen options are show stoppers for this.
The latter is possibly fixable through NVIDIA support in
dom0 and that’s what I’m working on next, but I would highly appreciate any hint on how to get the dock working.
Thank you for your consideration and any hints.
