Hardware

Wi-Fi

Works out-of-the-box.

Ethernet

Works out-of-the-box on current 3.19 kernel. alx driver got upstreamed somewhere around kernel version 3.10.

Touchpad

Touchpad now works out-of-the-box starting from kernel 3.14.

Touchpad LED also works (out-of-the-box). To turn LED on:

echo 255 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness

and off:

echo 0 >/sys/class/leds/dell-laptop::touchpad/brightness

Webcam

Works out-of-the-box. You don't need GSPCA for that.

Card reader

Works out-of-the-box. Notice that rts5139 driver is in staging, so be ready to complain on bugs.

Video

Intel HD4000 works OK since 3.4 kernel, use earlier kernels at one's own risk.

Sound

Works out-of-the-box:

CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=m
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=4096
CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_BEEP_MODE=1
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INPUT_JACK=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PATCH_LOADER=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_HDMI=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_CIRRUS=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_POWER_SAVE_DEFAULT=0

Other HDA codecs are unnecessary.

Note that full sound support including internal mic support appeared in 3.9 kernel, do consider using it. PulseAudio works OK as well.

Multimedia keys

No way to make hardware ones work. Brightness, volume and mediaplayer keys work OK. For touchpad toggling consider using my desktop-scripts: [2]

Fingerprint Reader

Test libfprintd version with VFS5011 Fingerprint Reader support is available here: [3]. Work OK.

Actions

Brightness adjustment

It's OK to pass the following options to kernel via bootloader:

acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor

to use native brightness control module. Otherwise it's level won't be stored. But if you use KDE, remove this one:

acpi_backlight=vendor

otherwise KDE won't be able to adjust brightness.

Hibernation

It works, but requires several tricks to take bugs away. Create tricks.sh file in /usr/lib/systemd/system-sleep/ folder with the following content:

#!/bin/sh

case $1/$2 in
pre/hibernate)
        echo never >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/replace_swsusp
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/enabled
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/enable_escape
        echo 1 >/sys/power/tuxonice/user_interface/default_console_level
        echo lzo >/sys/power/tuxonice/compression/algorithm
        echo shutdown >/sys/power/disk
        ifconfig wlan0 down
        uksmctl -d
        sync
        ;;
post/hibernate)
        hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda
        uksmctl -a
        echo madvise >/sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled
        ;;
pre/suspend)
        uksmctl -d
        sync
        ;;
post/suspend)
        hdparm -B 253 /dev/sda
        uksmctl -a
        ;;
esac

and make it executable. It you don't use pf-kernel, remove all strings related to TuxOnIce, UKSM and Transparent Hugepages.

Also it's nice to pass the following option to kernel via bootloader:

i8042.nopnp

otherwise errors during hibernation may occur. They do not interrupt hibernation, just pollute the screen. Everything works without this option.

Suspend to RAM

Works out-of-the-box.
