Lenovo released a new BIOS rom that fixes some issues. The V39 version should fix the following:
- Phase in V39 BIOS into Zx10 for solving CPU 0.77GHz issue
- Solve Windows 7 SLP2.0 function issue
Although it fixes Microsoft Windows issues, it could also effect (Arch) Linux.
Works without any issues. Remember it only features Fast Ethernet.
Works out-of-the-box. Remember to press the airplane mode button to turn on the wireless card or use the following command:
# iwconfig wlp2s0 txpower on
Install the Broadcom-driver as provided inAUR AUR.
Follow the Intel Graphics Wiki to install. VGA-video output is working.
Works out of the box with ALSA and PulseAudio. Arch Linux detects the HDMI as the first sound card and PCH (jack plug) as the second one. This might be undesirable on most applications, which will try, by default, to send sound through the HDMI port. You can either solve this by changing the order in which the kernel detects the cards, effectively making PCH as the card 0. Another option is by configuring "asoundrc" to use the second card (number 1). either in your home directory or system-wide (on etc). The latter option has the problem of you manually having to reconfigure that on pulseaudio or other applications that override that setting. Don't use the two options at the same time, as they'll reverse each others effect: choose the one that most fits your needs.
Via Kernel: snd_pcm_intel parameters
Simply create a file, /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-card-reordering.conf containing the following line:
options snd-hda-intel index=1,0
This solution is adapted from here.
As of Kernel 3.15.2-1, the trackpad - including two-finger scroll - should work out of the box.
