So I have been unsuccessfully trying to get LibreELEC 9.2.4 Generic to run on two different laptops, one is a Clevo N130WU with i5-8250U, the other a Clevo N151CU with i7-10510U, both with Intel HD 620 graphics:
- i5-8250U: System boots and seems to work as supposed to, but as soon as a video is started with the media player, all text disappears, only the icons remain, and I have to either restart or toggle the monitor output setting.
- i7-10510U: System does not boot, it hangs with "Starting Xorg-Server", then writes something "GPU not supported?" and gets caught in a loop with trying to start the xorg server.
The info found on the "text disappearance" problem is not conclusive, there are quite a few reports about it without solution, and in my case it's not about an older graphics card likely to cause problems with recent drivers. Any logs did not seem to help, so I didn't even bother. As for the i7-10510U it likely will require a newer version of LibreELEC?
I'm really just trying to quickly get one of the two laptops (preferably the newer one with i7-10510U) to work with LibreELEC as an intermediate solution for my home cinema until I have decided on which way to go for a dedicated LibreELEC box.
Any hints are welcome.
P.S. I'm glad to report back that today's nightly seems to be working on the i7-10510U, so it boots OK and when accessing the media player, the text does not disappear. I'll take a closer look in the evening when playing around with it in my home cinema setup.
