Video

Install xf86-video-intel or xf86-video-intel-newest. Make sure to configure KMS correctly.

Audio

Typical Intel HD Audio. Just follow ALSA.

Make sure you have the latest version of alsa-utils, alsa-lib and alsa-firmware.

Network

Swapping eth0/eth1 can confuse Wicd, assigning static names helps.

Wireless Driver (Broadcom)

See Broadcom wireless for driver setup.

It may be necessary to load the driver (wl as an axample here) manually:

/etc/rc.conf 
MODULES=(... wl ...)

Problem with reconnecting after suspending might be solved by:

/etc/pm/config.d/01-modules 
SUSPEND_MODULES="wl"

Driver Overview

  1. brcmsmac: Works best but the red/blue led isn't working.
  2. broadcom-wl: Needs to be compiled newly from the AUR (broadcom-wifi-builderAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] or broadcom-wlAUR) after each kernel upgrade. LED works but reconnecting problem after suspending.
  3. b43: Alternatively your network chip may be supported by b43 (kernel > 2.6.32).

Bluetooth

Touchpad

Works out of the box.

Webcam

ACPI

Suspend on Lid

This here works quite fine: Suspend to RAM#Automatic Suspend, the Hard Way

It might be necessary to use "/etc/acpi/events/lm_lid" instead of "/etc/acpi/events/lid". (laptop-mode?)

Just change the "LID" to it's actual value. For me it was C1D0.

/etc/acpi/actions/lid_handler.sh
if grep closed /proc/acpi/button/lid/C1D0/state >/dev/null ; then 

Power Button

Shutting system down by pressing the power button

Hotkeys

Display toggle

ACPI hotkeys

# acpi_listen
(Press fn+f2)
video C088 00000080 00000000

So we have to edit

/etc/acpi/handler.sh

like this

/etc/acpi/handler.sh 
case "$1" in
    .
    .
    .
    video)
        arandr #or path to your shell script for switching display mode
        ;;
    .
    .
    .
esac

Mute, browser button, volume down, etc...

Extra keyboard keys

Hard disk shock protection

Install hpfall from AUR and add it to rc.conf:

/etc/rc.conf 
DAEMONS=(... hpfall ...)
