Random notes for making a chuwi minibook (8100-Y) work with linux
Tests with debian testing (bullseye)
firmware-iwlwifipackage must be made available to the installer, otherwise wifi will not be available.
- The installer will not install
cryptsetup-initramfseven if the installation is made with encrypted/LVM selection.
- Almost everything basically works out of the box. Caveats:
- mmc1 (external micro-sd card reader) outputs errors to dmesg if there is no card inserted. Inserted cards seem to work well.
- Touchscreen works, but active stylus doesn't. https://gitlab.com/AdyaAdya/goodix-touchscreen-linux-driver adds support for it, but i2c input seems to crash randomly with it.
- closing the lid to suspend works randomly, sometimes it yields to device-powered-on-but-completely-unresponsive. Pushing the power button to suspend seems to work reliably. Opening the lid afterwards also works reliably.
- powertop is unable to tune quite a lot of tunables.
tlpworks well and there are many less tunables left in a "bad" state with it.
- the fan whine is noticeable, and there is no way to control the fan speed from linux
- the powerbutton should work also as a fingerprint reader, according to the official drivers it should be made by Focaltech, the device is nower to be seen neither in
lsusb. Perhaps it's attached via i2c?
