I’m part of the batch 10 crew also in the UK. From the point it was shipped, how many days was it to get to being out for delivery in UK? Trying to get a sense of the shipping timeline. Seems like it’s about 4 to 5 days which is pretty quick but wanting to sense check.
The latest Nextcloud client has a Nautilus integration: Nextcloud shares shown twicebug.
The Dash to Dock gnome extension has a Show Applicationsbug.
Ran into a bit of issue while replacing ffmpeg-free with ffmpeg. I’ve been able to resolve it.
One time when the laptop woke up from suspend, the whole screen was white. I haven’t looked into it any further but restarting the laptop fixed it. Not sure if it is related to the graphical artifacts issue.
Some of the issues might not be directly related to Fedora, just from third party packages. I’ve an Intel NUC with Fedora 38 where I’m not running into these issues, given it has older versions for some of these packages.
Overall the system is stable for me. Me saying seems a bit unpolished might have been a bit harsh.
Yeah, that’s a known issue with the fingerprint reader firmware (and not Fedora). Of course, there’s the part where match-on-chip Goodix fingerprint readers (used in many laptops) are questionably secure as well (and I think this does apply to the Framework?), so whether you’d want to use one at all is also worth considering.
(Now that I’m thinking about it, let me make a separate thread on fingerprint reader security.)
So delivery time was this morning between 8:30-12:00 (mind you most of packages are delivered late afternoon, this caught me by surprise). I had to take my son to school and the short time I was gone, they had already came …now it’s scheduled for tomorrow.
I guess it’s okay. A part of me is excited to try the new hardware but I honestly don’t want to perform the switch out until my classes are done this semester, especially with the varying experiences others have had. My 11th gen is baked in at this point and reliable.
Installation was mostly a breeze, with one excepption:
A wire was out of place near the lower left corner of the screen, causing the “bump” at the bottom of the bezel to not fit right. It caught each time I opened and closed the lid and was starting to rip itself off of the rest of the bezel. I have the wire straightened out now, but I think the bezel got a little damaged in the process of figuring it out.
Only the bottom ~half of the touchpad is clickable when tap-to-click is disabled. Kind of a disappointment. (I’ve gotten spoiled by my work macbook’s touchpad.)
I hit a security problem when trying to install NixOS, going to circle back to that
For my Windows partition, after installing the framework driver bundle, I rebooted and ran AMD’s driver tool, and it found a few more things to install.
Received my laptop this morning. The included screwdriver bit is indeed too soft, glad I have a ifixit set with me. Otherwise the setup process is really smooth. Installed NixOS, got around 5w on idle and 10w on light use with default configuration, not bad, but can use some optimizations.
Thanks, I figured it was something like that. But then I decided that NixOS was more likely to play nice with an existing Windows install than Windows was with an existing Linux install, so I decided to do Windows first.
