Some Framework+Fedora users have spent some time testing Fedora Linux 35 Beta and nearly everything seems to work flawlessly from a base install, with only minor modifications required for some issues. We will continue to update this post as the beta testing period continues & any outstanding issues are potentially fixed. If anyone else has any Framework-specific beta experiences or issues, please share them here. FYI, the Fedora Linux 35 final release is currently set for Oct. 19, 2021.
Specific Fedora & Linux Issues Fixed in this Release
Fingerprint Scanner works (not including hardware issue of erasing old fingerprint scans)
PSR / Panel Self Refresh disablement is no longer necessary
Sort-Of Fixed - Requires Minor User Intervention
Mic in via Headphone Jack - create the file
/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf containing the text
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-headset-multi, then reboot.
Potentially Still Unresolved / Needs Further Testing
Sleep / Suspend - a brief test of
deep revealed no major difference between the two as far as battery drain (still could be better), and
deep still takes ~15s to wake, so this still seems to be an issue specific to the Framework hardware.
Fractional Scaling - It is still not available as a default option in Gnome 41. The assumption is that it’s still an “experimental” feature for Gnome and this issue is not specific to Fedora or Framework.
GRUB “Scan Line” Glitch - this seems to be a GRUB issue and possibly not Fedora or Framework specific - see this post and the replies to it for additional details.
