↵ OpenBSD on Lenovo ThinkPad X395 (20NL000AUS)
Product Links: Technical specifications
I recently received a ThinkPad X395 as a donation, my first ThinkPad X-series laptop. I was really looking for something with the Ryzen 3000 series CPU, and that is what the X395 includes. The first thing I did was upgrade the BIOS using geteltorito to make a bootable USB, which pamela@ wrote a nice blog post about.
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 3700U w/ Vega 10 - 4c/8t @ 2.3GHz
- RAM: 8GB
- SSD: 512G Samsung M.2 NVMe
- LCD: 13.3" 1080p IPS
So far, everything I've tested!
- Wireless: Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 9260 supported by iwm(4)
- Touchpad/TrackPoint: Elan ClickPad (version 4, firmware 0x7f3001) supported by pms(4), TrackPoint and physical mouse buttons work
- Touchscreen: Works by default, USB uhidev(4) "Raydium Corp. Raydium Touch System"
- Audio: azalia(4) device, Realtek/0x0257 codec
- Webcam: uvideo(4) device, works with video(1). Thinkshutter switch for privacy.
- Power management: apmd_flags=-A works (better on 6.7-current)
- Accelerated X11/3D: amdgpu(4) works, needs amdgpu firmware
- AMD SVM/vmd(8): Works, enabled in BIOS by default
- ACPI S3 (RAM): lid close and zzz suspend/resume works
What doesn't, or is untested
- ACPI S4 (Hibernate): Untested.
- Ethernet: Realtek 8168 attaches as re(4), no RJ45 connector, needs ThinkPad Ethernet Extension Adapter Gen 2 (already ordered, awaiting shipment)
- Bluetooth: OpenBSD doesn't support it, so untested.
Many thanks to Alex Holst for the donation!
And here's the dmesg!
