Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 This can vary based on exact model

Video: Intel Corporation GM45 Chipset

Audio: Intel Coporation 82801I HD Audio Controller

Wired NIC: Realtek RTL8111/8168B

Wireless NIC: Intel Corporation Wireless Wifi Link 5100


Should work out of the box


Install iwlwifi-5000-ucode

# pacman -S iwlwifi-5000-ucode

Add iwlagn to your rc.conf



No real difficult getting Xorg running - heres the packages I installed - should get everything running;

# pacman -S xorg xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse synaptics xf86-video-intel

Then auto configure X using your favorite method and you're good to go.


Pulseaudio did the job admirably for me getting the sound working;

# pacman -S pulseaudio alsaplugins jack-audio-connection-kit

External speakers will work after configuration, however headphone and microphone jacks need one additional fix

Simply add

options snd-hda-intel model=acer position_fix=1 enable=yes

to /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf

Card Reader

Seemed to work with no additional configuration.


Worked with no additional configuration.

Works after synaptics is installed - still working on touchpad taps
