Configuration

Disable Secure Boot

To disable Secure Boot, the following steps must be performed:

  • Enable UEFI-only loading (no legacy support)
  • Set an administrator password
  • Disable secure boot

LTE modem

The modem is FCC locked. A script to enable the radio is installed by net-misc/modemmanager, but a link to it must be manually created:

root #mkdir -p /etc/ModemManager/fcc-unlock.d
root #ln -s ../../../usr/share/ModemManager/fcc-unlock.available.d/2c7c:030a /etc/ModemManager/fcc-unlock.d/
