Howdy. I’m working on getting Haiku up and running, having successfully figured out rEFInd. Unfortunately, I’m having issues that make it tough to use.
I’m using a Lenovo Thinkpad X380 Yoga. It works well, for the most part, but network access is extremely slow using Ethernet, and both the wifi cards I’ve tried, an Intel 7265 and 8265, don’t work.
Speed testing shows a few megabits down and maybe 50kbps up on a cable connection that’s supposed to be 400mbps down and 10mbps up.
The built-in NIC is an Intel I219-LM. I saw an entry in the unofficial hardware database saying the 7265 was working, but according to the syslog, it tries to load the firmware and fails. (I ran install-wifi-firmwares.sh to no avail; incidentally, this currently has trouble downloading a couple of firmwares for cards I don’t have.)
Does anyone know of any workarounds for this pair of problems? I work at an e-waste recycler and am gonna grab a 7260 and a handful of other cards at work for further testing, but my recollection was that the 7260 was deeply flawed in terms of receive reception. I’ve also got an Intel AX210 in the mail but it’s not here yet.
