Anyone here with a 32bit UEFI system ?
« on: January 25, 2019, 12:39:30 pm »
Is there anyone on here that has one of those weird machines that have a 64bit CPU but a 32bit UEFI ?
(usually netbooks with cherrytrail/baytrail Atom CPU's such as Z3735F or similar)

If so I have a Peppermint 9 ISO I'd like testing.

Anyone ?

Had one of those a couple of years ago. Donated it away..., sorry!

Yes, I could dig out the Pipo X8 and give that a whirl  ;)

Here's a Peppermint 9 Respin2 ISO with an included 32bit EFI bootloader
https://peppermintos.info/pm9r-testing/Peppermint-9-20190102-32bit-efi-amd64.iso
MD5: a1b0731db64976b62c23f299efcbb5cb
SHA256: 9f17afefe2ef5d1bd98d53ad0682f1f1b1edb3a3d12b8b77faeb18db3e844cb8

Please let me know how you get on with it.

Also be aware that CURRENTLY you'll need to have an active internet connection during the install, so grub-efi-ia32 can be downloaded by ubiquity .. but if this works, I can always add grub-efi-ia32 to the ISO itself on the next spin so it can be installed offline.

You'll also need to disable Secureboot in your BIOS

Thanks murraymint :)

OK, this boots, installs and updates perfectly. :)

Touchscreen and analogue audio don't seem to be working. Not a big surprise with Baytrail, I don't remember getting them to work before but it might be possible.

I'm looking into the audio issue. It does come up as a device but at first when playing any media, Pulseaudio became impossible to connect to. Now it just races through the media much too fast, whether it's YouTube or the player app, and the meters in pavucontrol don't even move.

I don't have anything to test the audio via HDMI unfortunately but I think that's more likely to work.

You think this will be supported down the road abit?
I got one I been using Debian on it,  (only Distro I was able to get working).

It's been working well but Pep would be much better for my preferences. :D

My hardware is a ASUS X201Ta -- 2015 Version

How's your sound working on that? Did you have to mess around with drivers or patches?

It's "kinda" supported now, this is purely the Peppermint 9 Respin2 64bit ISO with:-

i) The 32bit UEFI bootloader included (bootia32.efi).
ii) The Linuxium fix for the broadcom wireless drivers.
iii) The Linuxium UCM fix for the bytcr-rt5640 driver.

So if you can get it installed.....

It's working perfectly on a Lenovo 100S-11IBY I acquired for working on this :)
(but obviously this is the only hardware I can test it on)

I've read these CPU's are better supported in the 4.19 kernel, so I'll try that next and report back.

[EDIT]

One thing I noticed is during the install it never prompted me to choose a keyboard layout so was installed with en-US .. something I had to change post install .. I need to check this.
(if you get the same, it'd be a good idea not to choose a password with special characters which may change when you alter the layout post install)

I'm quite impressed how well Peppermint is running on this Atom :)

Except for the non-functioning touchpad scrolling on this Lenovo (a hardware thing, not a Linux thing .. there's no scrolling in Windows either) this thing is pretty sharp for simple everyday tasks :)
(and the battery looks like it'll give me a few hours without any optimisation done yet)

Ahh!!!  ;) so nice to have Peppermint on here again,  a while back I was able to to get Pep7 on it but since then its been just straight debian.

Anyway, no issues from my point of view.
Usually on debian I run through these steps after install:
Deb Wiki

But with this Pep Re-spin installation
1. The Wireless works no issues
2. The SD card is being recognized
3. Bluetooth is working
4. Battery status info is working
5. Power management is working




Now for this model the sound still does not work. I did not expect it to work as the wiki is still not very clear when it/if they will ever get a good driver.

All in all this is great :)!  A realy nice RED minty color laptop and with Peppermint.... cant get any better LOL


@Murraymint - I have tried so many times to get the sound working to no avail...LOL I just deal with it no sound ...P:

One more thing. you are right about the keyboard. After it was up and running I went and installed the Japanese keyboard input.

OK,   ;) last final question when I go to install language support, why have so many languages pre-installed?  language support has, german, russian, chinese , english etc.... What I normally do is deselect everything except what I need which is Japanese and English. Not a problem but just curious.  Could there be a prompt to ask for the language? rather than install all that.

To tell the truth, I don't know .. all the *buntu's come with those pre-installed, so we do too (for no particular reason).

I could have tried to make something up and make it sound all 'technical', but what the heck :))

Any chance you guys can post your output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz
and
Code: [Select]
lshw -C multimedia
and
Code: [Select]
aplay -l
and
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec* | grep Codec
and if any
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card1/codec* | grep Codec
and
Code: [Select]
dmesg | grep -i "error\|warn\|fail"

Okay grafiksinc's system we MIGHT be able to do something with as it's showing a second (non-HDMI) audio card .. just not the same as mine, which I'd applied a fix for in the ISO

murraymints on the other hand doesn't seem to be seeing a second (non-HDMI) sound card at all :-\
(might be interesting to see if it shows up in say the 4.19/4.20 kernel)

I'm beginning to see why *buntu (and others) have decided not to support these things .. it's much more than just supplying the 32bit UEFI bootloader. If you support the bootloader you're gonna have a ton of people saying "hey I wiped Windows for your distro, now I have no sound/wireless, and no way to reinstall Windows".

I'll do some more homework and see what I can come up with.

@grafiksinc

What happens if you run:
Code: [Select]
alsamixer
then hit F6

then select the chtrt5645 adapter as the sound device ?

That worked......but.
After following your steps.
I had to open the Audio mixer
Click on the Output Devices tab
Set Port to Speaker.
After that Sound worked. ;)
