ThinkPad L14 G2 Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U working?


after my Inspiron is likely not to work with Qubes it will get sent back.

As a replacement i am thinking of a ThinkPad L14 G2 with a Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U. As this CPU/iGPU is rather new (Q1 2021)i wanted to ask if anybody has experience with it and Qubes.


There’s many discussion about intel / amd, nvidia / radeon on linux, I’d say that intel cpu and radeon gpu work best for linux.

If you want some ready to use laptop, take a look at Hardware compatibility list (HCL) and Community-recommended computers

what causing it ?

I don’t know exactly. First i thought it might be a GPU driver issue but other machines with the same GPU are in the HCL. This is the post i created for it, but i have given up on that one and hope that the ThinkPad will work.

I can confirm, that qubes 4.0.4 is working out of the box on the Lenovo ThinkPad L14 with the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850 with some restrictions like no working screen brightness control.
