In light of our shipping-from-inventory fulfillment model having recently begun and in order to answer questions we have been getting related to pre-loaded versions of Qubes OS, we would like to announce that we will be fulfilling Qubes-related pending orders made until now by offering the Qubes install as a complimentary USB key included at no additional charge in those shipments.
mladen, Originally I ordered my Librem on November 1 in part because in was “certified” to run Qubes, so I expected a laptop that would work flawlessly with it. After the delays, I agreed to let purism ship the laptop with a blank drive since $1700 of mine had been held over half a year, and there was no OEM Qubes image you could use.
It seems my order was shipped while I was on vacation, possibly just before the July 4 publication of the above post. So I did not know of the availability of a Qubes installation USB.
After having tried to install Qubes 3.2 on the Librem 13 v2, I ran into the grub-install issue and the suggested work-around succeeded. However I found that Qubes crashes when resuming from either suspend or hibernate. A user on the #purism IRC channel suggested I downgrade the kernel to 4.9, however Qubes 3.2 installs a much older kernel to begin with.
I am not sure what to do next. Can you recommend a way to get a working Qubes installation on a Librem 13 v2?
