Thread: secure boot eufi windows 10 and leap 15, building new pc

    Default Re: secure boot eufi windows 10 and leap 15, building new pc

    While watching a video about Linux boot being able to boot windows, I saw something interesting maybe related to this topic.

    Its seems that in the efi spec, there is a start image.

    That totally reminded me of the pre post, weird screen issue I had.

    To be continued. Could it be as simple as editing a line in the efi ? If I can find it.

    I'm not about to try guessing.

    I have helped a number of people with UEFI issues. The problems seem to vary with the implementation.

    I have a fine working pc now, so no issues.


    I am have ever just curious about that weird screen with csm disabled.
    See if I can learn something from it.

    I updated to tumbleweed.

    I have a few questions though. ( one is should I start a new topic ? )

    Seems I am getting a UEFI related message ( on startup) , but it goes away too fast, so I don't get enough time to read it.
    Can I read it in some log?


    Then a question about my mouse, I was using on leap 15.1, a command to slow down my mouse.

    But now it says:

    Code:
    guus@linux-2ls4:~> xinput --set-prop 10 'libinput Accel Speed' -0.5
    property 'libinput Accel Speed' doesn't exist, you need to specify its type and format
    Edit: mouse problem might be fixed, I can now lower speed with mouse settings.

    I am happy to have a nice trashcan though. Missed that on leap, were it was just a folder icon.

    Do I need to do zypper dup after each update now I am on tumbleweed?

    Yes, except that it won't hurt to skip some.

    I update for every snapshot with Tumbleweed in a VM. But on real hardware, I am updating on Saturdays (unless there is an update that I urgently want to apply). Once a week seems good enough.

    Thank you.

    Well tumbleweed seems to be working fine, but ..

    I need to investigate further, I just was able to read part of the message.

    It can't find a UEFi db.

    Saw another difference with Leap 15.1. I now have a Asrock logo with the word tumbleweed below it. Looks kinda cool.

    Still need to find were I can see this when I am on the desktop, but found something on a Ubuntu forum, that looks suspicious like what I am seeing.

    Googled:
    Cant find UEFI db list

    Code:
    kernel: [ 0.982630] Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e kernel: [ 0.982929] MODSIGN: Couldn't get UEFI db list kernel: [ 0.986380] Couldn't get size: 0x800000000000000e
    To be continued.

    I ignore those.

    As far as I know, it happens when you are not using secure-boot support. And, in that case, you shouldn't care.

    It has to do with being able to check the signatures on kernel modules.

    I do not see this when I use secure-boot.
    I do not see this when I use BIOS booting (MBR booting).

    I do see this when I use UEFI booting, but I am not using "shim.efi" for the booting. Where I actually see this, is in a virtual machine that I have set up for 32-bit UEFI, and there is no 32-bit shim or secure-boot support. But I think I would also see this if I disabled secure-boot and stopped using "shim.efi" on a 64-bit UEFI system.

    Thank you, and for now I am happy with tumbleweed.


    Installed another game, SeriousSam 3 bfe, it complained about my drivers, but looked fine.

    I do have a mouse issue in this game though. Moves way to fast and in game mouse is set to slowest possible setting.

    Something to google, I doubt I am the first one having this issue.

    Already found a possible solution.

    Another problem solved, don't we love pc ?

    I had connected my headset to my pc, but the sound was absolutely disappointing. No base at all on my Sennheiser GSP 300 headset.


    This might safe others some trouble. The problem is not Linux nor Windows related.

    Connect headset not to the frontpanel, but directly to the motherboard.

    I will investigate further about this, but already learned through google, I am not the only one with this issue, on an Asrock mobo.
    Poor sound when headset is connected to the frontpanel.


    Had my first tumbleweed issue.
    While it was updating, my mouse and keyboard stopped working, so only way to turn off pc, was to hold power button for 5 seconds. (It looked like it was done updating)
    After I had restarted the pc, all seems fine and I did zypper dup.

    Dispite this glitch for now still happy, I switched to Tumbleweed.
    Pc feels slightly faster, compared to leap 15.1.

    For now going with the update flow, but I might gonna do as suggested in this topic, and update ones a week.
