This page will eventually hold information to install Arch Linux on the Acer Aspire 1410. Here is the (albeit empty) forum post for discussion: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=626296



Hardware Manufacturer Status

Webcam Chicony Electronics Co. Ltd Works
Touchpad Works (modify Xorg.conf)
HDMI Out Untested

Installing Arch


Before you install Arch, ensure that the SATA mode is set to "IDE" in the BIOS. This will resolve the hard drive error messages.

Package Installation

Be sure to install "iwlwifi-5000-ucode" and "wireless_tools" (I also installed "netcfg") if you would like wireless to work post-install.
