EM120R-GL for Linux

Dear,

I bought the latest Lenovo X9, used Fedora on it, and only hardware not working out of the box is the Quectel modem.

I can see it under a lspci:
08:00.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Device 1eac:1001

Seams driver is missing.

Would it be possible to get a working driver for Linux, please?

Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for your query in Quectel forums.
We cannot provide this linux driver directly to the end user, because there will be authentication problems when installing this driver. Lenovo will launch a customized ubuntu in the future. It is recommended that you obtain it from Lenovo.
Thanks.

This device is supported by the mhi_pci_generic driver in Linux v5.13 and later. See https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/drivers/bus/mhi/pci_generic.c?id=ac4bf60bbaa090d3abfc5a340bd01ae933fadacf

You’d want to run the mhi_net driver on top of that for MBIM support.

But there might be Lenovo platform specific issues, as @Kerr.Yang-Q indicates.
