This is just a draft - more detailed instructions coming up soon + more detailed tests

Netbook works flawlessly with Arch Linux (if you encounter freezes see Troubleshooting below)


Just install the official closed source drivers from arch extra repo:

pacman -S nvidia


Two options: either install rtl8192 package from AUR or use ndiswrapper with Windows 2000 driver for the card. The former seems to be much snappier (better wifi range) but disables one from using aircrack!


Touchpad/keyboard freezes Most likely you are using kernel 2.6.32 or newer. The only solution for now is to downgrade to 2.6.31.
