↵ OpenBSD on Huawei MateBook D (AMD model KPL-W0X)
Back in December I made a joke in earnest that I only accepted thanks in the form of pizza or laptops, of course many people have graciously offered the former, I was not expecting the lengths of which someone would go to do the latter. And after many back and forths, trying as hard as I could to dissuade them (Shipping to Canada woes), they agreed to bring it with them to BSDCan 2019 and have it find its way to me!
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2500U with Vega 8 - 4c/8t @ 2.0GHz
- RAM: 8GB
- SSD: 256G SandDisk M.2 SATA
Well, the keyboard backlight, as you can tell from above! But in addition to that, pretty much everything is supported by OpenBSD!
- Wireless: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265 supported by iwm(4)
- Touchpad: Elan ClickPad supported by both legacy pms(4) and ihidev/imt(4)
- Touchscreen: Wacom I2C HID device, supported by ihidev/ims(4) in 6.7 -current (as of July 2020)
- Audio: Dolby Atmos speakers sound great, supported by azalia(4), Realtek Codec
- Webcam: uvideo(4) device, works with video(1) on amdgpu(4)
- Power management: apmd_flags=-A seems to work
- Accelerated X11/3D: amdgpu kernel drm driver has been committed to -current. Don't forget to
# fw_update amdgpu
- AMD SVM/vmd(8): Requires BIOS upgrade (1.22) to enable Virtualization setting.
What doesn't, or is untested
- ACPI S3 (RAM): zzz(8) and lid suspend/resume works in -current (Jan 2020), will be in 6.7.
- ACPI S4 (Hibernate): ZZZ(8) untested, should work?
- Bluetooth: OpenBSD doesn't support it, so untested.
My sincerest graditude to jsc/@grubernaut!, I finally own a laptop with a keyboard backlight!
If you liked this article, I'd sure appreciate a pizza. But only if you really want to! Okay.
