I have this fantastic setup where my desktop PC is thunderbolted away to the next door room through a wall so I have a completely silent system. Trouble is, I can’t get my dock working in openSUSE Tumbleweed despite it being connected and authorized, and I suspect it might have something to do with the motherboard and BIOS (v2.30) based upon this thread:
I have the same message in ‘dmesg’ – “No bus number available for hot added bridge” – even with the newest BIOS, and the other solutions in the thread don’t work for me (not even BIOS v1.20). However, with other versions (I think v1.20 and 1.78, although I forget whether it was with the kernel parameters or not) I get something different in ‘dmesg’ (thunderbolt device gets disconnected after something fails) albeit the same end result.
The dock works fine on Windows 10, although I’ve yet to test display since I don’t have a DP cable (it’s on its way) to connect to the motherboard input and GPU. I’ve even tried to install the thunderbolt utility ASRock provides on their download page and install it using wine with ‘msiexec’, but that was a dead end.
Anyway, any help debugging and hopefully getting this to work would be greatly appreciated. I’ve already contacted Belkin themselves who would get back to me with more competent people apparently.
