Notes

Although the processor supports x86_64, the BIOS does not. You will only be able to use x86 on this netbook.

This wiki article was written based on a slightly modified 4120sa. Featuring a 64GB SSD and 2GB of DDR3 RAM. Most things should be okay to follow though, but be warned.

Hardware

CPU

The CPU clock frequency should automatically adjust based on usage, varying from 798MHz to 1.86GHz.

Audio

Audio is supported through ALSA with virtually no configuration. Following the ALSA article should cover all that is needed. Note that the Mute LED seems to be non-functional.

Video

Kernel module gma500_gfx should be automatically loaded as of Kernel 3.3rc1, see: Poulsbo

Webcam

The webcam should be supported through the uvcvideo module by default, if not:

# modprobe uvcvideo

Networking

Wireless

The Atheros AR9485 (rev 01) works out of the box with ath9k module present in kernels v2.6.27 and newer.

Wired

The Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E (rev 05) works out of the box with the r8169 module present in kernels 2.26.31 and newer.

Bluetooth

Bluetooth works out of the box, just follow instructions at Bluetooth.

Touchpad

The Synaptics driver can be installed as described here. Vertical and horizontal two finger scrolling work, as well as palm detection, and can be enabled in the synaptics .conf file:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-synaptics.conf
 Section "InputClass"
       Identifier "touchpad"
       Driver "synaptics"
       MatchIsTouchpad "on"
              Option "TapButton1" "1"
              Option "TapButton2" "2"
              Option "TapButton3" "3"
              Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "on"
	      Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "on"
	      Option "PalmDetect" "on"
              ...
