Suggested changes: I think nvidia driver no longer works with this model. Use nouveau. Also, you can use your HDMI port with nouveau and the pavucontrol package. You may need to unmute SPDIF in alsamixer. (I learned that here.) I am happy to make change, but thought I'd throw it here first because it is a pretty major revision.

Rather than advising readers to manually compile and install alsa drivers, how about encouraging the use of makepkg and a custom PKGBUILD to fit? If you have trouble writing your own PKGBUILD, inquire on the PKGBUILD requests subforum. :) Misfit138 21:57, 2 July 2008 (EDT)

Sure it would be a better solution, I did a mistake doing it this way, which is not the Arch way. But it is already working for me, so if I reinstall it, I won't see any difference, and I don't want to reinstall my system from scratch. Then I think that this trick is no longer needed with the new kernel. If a newcomer could test it... Bapman 16:15, 4 July 2008 (EDT)
