    Improved Linux support for the GPDwin

    Post by hansdegoede on 2017-04-01, 15:13

    Hi,

    I'm a Linux kernl developer who recently has started playing with the GPDwin and I've written quite a few kernel patches to make Linux work better on the GPDwin, if you're interested in running Linux on the GPDwin, see:

    http://hansdegoede.livejournal.com/17445.html

    for more information and some step-by-step instructions for getting Linux with my kernel to run on the GPDwin.

    Regards,

    Hans

    Hi Hans,

    Wow!

    You've done a lot of work, thank you for doing this and sharing all the helpful info on webpage.

    You got the display rotated correctly when using a window manager?

    Per my earlier posts, that's part that I had a lot of difficulty with, it would crash when trying to rotate.

    When I have some time will try to follow your instructions. I will need to downgrade BIOS verson first.

    Hi,

    Yes using the gnome desktop environment + a recent iio-sensor-procy the display rotates to match the orientation of the device.

    p.s.

    As long as you don't need the UB-C port device mode the 20161118 BIOs will work fine too. Make sure your machine is fully charged before doing the BIOS downgrade.

    OK, thank you for clarifying.

    So, if I understand correctly, you installed Fedora and gnome on your WIN and most things are working OK.

    Actually, I only use the USB-C port for charging. Use the USB port with a hub to connect other devices. So, don't really need to do the downgrade as you say.

    Thanks.

    @hansdegoede:
    Thank you for all your effort!

    On your website you wrote that about half the patches will be implemented in linux 4.12.
    Do you know which parts were accepted? I hope the battery patch is part of it. I tried to use your kernel sources to build a kernel for arch. Unfortunately I don't see the battery life in it. Most likely I did something wrong. I would like to wait for kernel 4.12 to be released for arch.

    I tried linux 4.12RC1 now.
    I also added dmi_product_name=GPD-WINI55 to the kernel comand line. Unfortunately I didn't got a battery indication. Any ideas?

    @Developer: Maybe I'm wrong but from what I see you should improve your bios. Are you planning to do that?
