Re: X1 Yoga 2017 Sierra modem driver questions

Puppy, thanks for responding! :)

Now, So the first package has version "7.47.4743.0105" and the second one has version "Build.4620/16".

Can you even correlate these?

Do you understand why they distributed two in the first place?

Re: X1 Yoga 2017 display driver questions

I realized that the OLED Panel driver corresponds to the Windows device by the name "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver" which is found in Windows' Device Manager in the "System devices" section. This should mean that the ThinkPad Monitor File is indeed needed and is for the actual monitor. I half-checked t...

Re: maximal resolution of internal mini hdmi port

2560x1440px should be perfectly fine at 60-100Hz I think.

4K should work too, at 24hz or 30hz, don't remember.

This stuff is specified for the CPU, so look up the CPU on Intel's website - and do the public a service by then posting the URL you find as response to this thread! :)

Hi everyone, How do you update the BIOS from Linux on the Thinkpad S1 Yoga? This is a pretty important matter. I'm quite confident it can be done, but since it's not documented anywhere, I can't figure out Exactly how to do it. How do you do this? Or, what's your best idea of how this should be done...

Re: Thinkpad Yoga not suitable for travel: 2:nd broken screen in 2 months

Your bag is like mine, there is the problem with it also.

I succeeded with keeping a display not broken for 3 months now, by putting a sheet of cardboard between the display and keyboard when shut, and generally being extremely careful not to push the bag ever.

Re: Feature Request: X1 Carbon Generaation 3 (2015) support for NVMe SSD

OMG - but wait, the X1 Carbon (2015) does *NOT* use a SATA interface, does it? I'm quite clear I read benchmarks showing ~1400MB/sec throughput, whereas SATA 3's upper practical limit is ~600MB/sec, no?

Kindly correct me :)

In 3 weeks in India, I burnt no less than three electricity chargers.

rkawakami, thanks.

Apparently the AC adapter was fried, from voltage fluctuations in this Indian power system.

So apparently you always need an external voltage stabilizer when you're in the third world.

If travelling and something bad would happen to laptop, it would be incredibly good to be able to have the correspondent of a SATA to USB cable, for the PCIe SSD in the X1 Carbon 2015.'
