@pin Thanks for having taking the time to check things out!
I did not know that one could swap wifi chip, that's good news! It seems that we are living in the same country, so that should not cost me a fortune to find such a component 😉
In the mean time I can always use a trusty generic usb wifi adapter !
mrkrisprolls It seems that we are living in the same country
In that case... Have a look here
Tack så mycket !
Thanks a bunch!
mrkrisprolls varsågod 😁
Guide updated 😉
snufkin There is a big chance that I will install NetBSD on my main laptop (Thinkpad x230)
I just read some of your posts and I wanted to say that I was in the same place you were 2 years ago. I found this forum and was immediately attracted to the excellent content and the friendly and helpful users. Especially @pin for his easy to follow install guide and his willingness answer questions and to help new users get into NetBSD. He helped me alot (still does).
I quoted the above text because I initially purchased an X230 for the purpose of installing NetBSD and I currently use Spectrwm. It's a great wm and easily configured. Good luck with it!
Ramiferous Forums like this makes me happy. Supportive, skilled and friendly people here for sure! 😃
Thanks @pin for writing this, it was a big help to me getting started on netbsd.
I've found net to be a good balance between free and open if that makes any sense.
Edit: Just to add, I'll be on here often looking for help lol
nortonham thanks 🙂
Tried netbsd on my pc with nvidia it has very good performance i like that compared to openbsd performance(even with supported amd gpu) but i have some problems on my ryzen/vega laptop touchpad doesn't seem to work tried getting some help but they couldn't help me with this problem. On OpenBSD touchpad works out of the box.
Is ryzen vega gpu supported i mean can i watch youtube videos etc etc ?
Drm says its not configured. I have installed amdgpu xorg and triee to do x configure but it cant create config file because it says the number of screens are not the same as those detected.
If there is anyone that can help i would gladly have a second look on netbsd.
chrisfromgreece Drm says its not configured.
amdgpu DRM is not enabled in the GENERIC kernel. Compile a new kernel with that enabled. (You may also have to disable all the radeon drivers. And maybe also copy the binary firmware blobs over from Linux.)
rvp It's not included in GENERIC because it doesn't work yet. Actual working radeon support goes up to GCN 1 or so.
nia It's not included in GENERIC because it doesn't work yet.
Ah! That's why it's commented out. Thanks.
