Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

Hmmm, I don't think my desktop computer boots from USB but it is happily running a Helium/Debian 10 combo. It is a 64-bit system and it is some ten years old. It does everything I want a personal computer to do and I expect it to run Lithium as well. I would be very disappointed otherwise.

Re: Testing Lithium iso discussion

^I've got a 32bit laptop older than that, running Lithium OK. As far as 1GB of RAM and a Centrino CPU can be "OK" on today's WWW. It's fine for coding anyway.

But I would be surprised if any 64bit machine was unable to boot from a USB stick. It might require some setting changing in the BIOS?

Post the computer brand and model number, let's see what we can see. Open a new thread in this dev forum with the info and an appropriate title. Thanks.

Come to think of it, we've never released a 64 bit CD iso, so either you installed Helium from a USB stick or else you're running a 32 bit system with a 64 bit processor. (This is quite possible btw.)

Anyway, as @hhh says, a new thread would be better for this topic.

I finally had the presence of mind to interrupt the booting process and check -- I think you are right in thinking a 64-bit motherboard should support USB-booting. The boot order is HHD -- removable media -- CD/DVD-R/W unit. Strangely enough I have no recollection of having ever booted this machine from an USB stick and yes, it is a 64-bit system. I guess my memory is ailing.

BLOB just saves whichever themes you have set. Gtk/OB/icon/etc themes aren't BL-specific.

Hi all,

I'm not sure where the most appropriate place is for raising bugs for Lithium seeing as it's still in pre-release. I didn't want to pollute the bugs section as it seemed unfair. Please advise.

I have Lithium on bare metal hardware, Lenovo Thinkpad x270.

When BL goes into standby/sleep after a period of inactivity, it is not always possible to wake the BL session. The power key light throbs indicating the hardware is in standby.  Pressing SPACE or other keys does not wake the device. Pressing the power button wakes the hardware (solid power light) but the screen does not activate. Pressing any keys subsequently also does not enable the screen.

The same scenario occurs if the device lid is closed then opened. The power light moves from throbbing to solid but the screen does not enable.  The screen is also not backlit, indicating it has not been enabled.
The device only reacts to a semi-long press (1 second) of the power button which sends the shutdown signal. This is the only occurrence when the screen enables to display the power off sequence.

Before having BL Lithium as the host OS on the device, I had Debian 10 which suffered none of these issues. The device would wake immediately on key press, power button press or lid open.

Is this an ACPI issue in Lithium?

Can confirm that I have the same exact issue as jimjamz on a Thinkpad X1 Carbon (model 20A7; CPU: i5 - 4300U; integrated Intel graphics; kernel: 4.19.0-9-amd64).

Typing in the password on a dark, blank screen works and I can log in. But the screen won't turn on until then.
