== Installing Arch ==
 
 
 
=== Pre-Install ===
 
Before you install Arch, ensure that the SATA mode is set to "IDE" in the BIOS. This will resolve the hard drive error messages.
 
 
 
----
 
This wasn't necessary for my Aspire 1410.
 
 
 
=== 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.
 
 
 
=== Setup the Internal Microphone ===
 
Download the latest alsa driver from [http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Download Alsa Project Download Page].
 
Untar the file
 
tar -xjvf alsa-driver-1.0.22.1.tar.bz2
 
Change directories
 
cd alsa-driver-1.0.22
 
Configure
 
sh configure --prefix=/usr --with-cards=hda-intel
 
Compile
 
make
 
Install
 
sudo make install
 
 
 
Reboot/reload your modules, run alsaconf and your mic should be good to go!
 
 
 
== Setup the touchpad ==
 
Make sure to install xf86-input-synaptics. If you use HAL for Xorg hotplugging it will be autoloaded. Don't forget to enable the touchpad with <Fn>-F7.
