The GMA 500 in the 1101HAb works well with the gma500_gfx driver included in the kernel and the fbdev driver. Install the fbdev driver via pacman: xf86-video-fbdev

As of linux-2.6, the user can no longer control the backlight. This can be remedied by adding acpi_osi=Linux to the KERNEL line in your bootloader.


The webcam makes use of the uvcvideo module, which is part of the kernel as of linux-2.6. Just run:

# modprobe uvcvideo

and then you can use mplayer to test the camera's video:

$  mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=320:height=240:fps=200:device=/dev/video0 -nosound

To load the module on startup, youmay add the module name to the MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf


After a clean installation, some of the media keys will not work. The ones that do (Volume Up/Down/Mute and Wifi) work well, but the rest require some tweaking. Adding

   acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux

should be enough to get all of the keys (except Fn+F7) mapped to keycodes, which may then be mapped to actions via either something like speckeysd / xbindkeys or the user's desktop environment.


This model have more temperature than it seems to be "normal". It seems that fan does not work properly. It reaches 69 Celsius degrees.
