Gentoo on ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2

This page gives some experience of installation and configuration of Gentoo Linux on X1 Carbon 2nd,

Problem with resume from suspend

Linux (not Gentoo only) can not return from suspend mode, problem is with BIOS firmware.

Check BIOS version:

# dmidecode -s bios-version

GRET29WW (1.06 )

If BIOS version is less than 1.13 you need to upgrade BIOS. You can find the latest version on download page > select "Component: BIOS" > BIOS Update (Bootable CD). (ignore that it supposed to be used with Windows)

Follow this instructions: BIOS Upgrade

Still problem is not solved after updating to BIOS 1.16 / ECP 1.15
