Yes it’s possible! Using a MSI Delta 15 Notebook under Debian Linux.
The most works out of the box but some parts need a little work. Those parts are fan-control, rgb-keys and the backlight of the monitor.
In short terms:
- Kernel 5.18, manually compiled with
ec_sysenabled as module.
echo "100" > /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_bl0/brightness(Control backlight-brightness)
iswfor fan-control (
ec_syshas to be enable, the module is loaded by
modprobe ec_sys write_support=1)
Kernel 5.18 is important for Wifi, otherwise some issues will occur loading the firmware at startup.
If you get many bluetooth-warnings from the kernel then temporary disable them with
dmesg -n 1
Then disable alle bluetooth-Modules at startup.
It seems that ec_sys was enabled by default in previous kernel-releases but somehow that stopped and that feature is only available in some debug-kernels. Anyway, i don’t care about that and if you’re sometimes use your notebook for browsing the web then it makes sense to lower the fan-noise with isw.
