Ryzen 4700U + Intel Wi-fi 6 AX200 Linux Drivers

Hello All,

 

I just got a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 earlier this week (spec sheet link embedded in product name). The goal is to use Arch Linux without losing performance, driver support, dolby audio, & keep some of Lenovo features such as the quick battery profile switcher. Currently, I'm running on Win10 Home & actively preparing to install an edited Win10 2019 LTSC until I figure out how to setup the drivers needed for Arch. 

 

I have experience with Manjaro, Linux Mint, Ubuntu, & very little with Arch. In the past, I've usually go back to Windows because it was a OS I grow up using daily. Anyways, I'm ready to make Linux my main OS & I've heard Manjaro is releasing Ryzen laptops. Maybe that could be an option.  I could use any information you may help to obtain the drivers needed to support the Ideapad 5 hardware. 

 

Thank You & take care,

Dexterous Fox

Drivers for most devices are part of the Linux Kernel. You would need to install Linux or Boot a Live Environment to see what works and what doesn't and go from there. Everything should work though.

You wont lose any performance.

 

Dolby Audio, not sure what you mean with this one. You will be using PulseAudio, you can look at pulseffects maybe it offers something your after.

Quick Battery Profile Switcher, Don't think you are going to find anything like this. You can however look at https://github.com/rickysarraf/laptop-mode-tools/wiki

 

Both of those are also available in the AUR.

Thanks. The Dolby audio thing seems to be just program similar to PulseAudio. I only want the sound output to be the same when playing videos, audio, etc. 

 

In my experience, Wine seems to do a good enough job to run windows programs. Hopefully, that works well enough to keep some Lenovo features.
