For an in-depth guide on the installation see the Beginners' guide.


The GMA 500 in the 1101HAb works well with the gma500_gfx driver included in the kernel and the fbdev driver. Install the fbdev driver via pacman:

   # pacman -Syu xf86-video-fbdev

As of linux-2.6, the user can no longer control the backlight. This can be remedied by adding acpi_osi=Linux to the KERNEL line in your bootloader.

(TODO: Add xorg configuration how-to)


In at least one instance, sound worked out of the box. Just unmute and adjust the Master mixer using something like alsamixer.


The webcam makes use of the uvcvideo module, which is part of the kernel as of linux-2.6. Just run:

   # modprobe uvcvideo

and then you can use mplayer to test the camera's video:

   $  mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=320:height=240:fps=200:device=/dev/video0 -nosound

To load the module on startup, youmay add the module name to the MODULES array in /etc/rc.conf


After a clean installation, some of the media keys will not work. The ones that do (Volume Up/Down/Mute and Wifi) work well, but the rest require some tweaking. Adding

   acpi_backlight=vendor acpi_osi=Linux

should be enough to get all of the keys (except Fn+F7) mapped to keycodes, which may then be mapped to actions via either something like speckeysd / xbindkeys or the user's desktop environment.


This model have more temperature than it seems to be "normal". It seems that fan does not work properly. It reaches 69 Celsius degrees.
