Does EOS 4.0 still not support Intel Alder Lake chipset ?


Thanks for your information!

EOS 4.0’s kernel 5.11.x has not supported Intel Alder Lake, yet.
After checked the Linux kernel’s commit logs, the Intel Alder Lake is still under development to have more improvement in latest kernel.
The new EOS 5 will include kernel 5.15 (the latest mainline Linux kernel LTS version) and other related packages. It may have better support for Intel Alder Lake.
