=Networking=
 
 
 
==Wired Ethernet==
 
 
 
If you have problems with the Ethernet card, you'll have to load the modules {{ic|broadcom}} then {{ic|tg3}}. Add to the end of {{ic|/etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf}}:
 
 
 
  softdep tg3 pre: broadcom
 
 
 
==Wireless==
 
The Atheros WLAN chip is fully supported by ath9k, which is automatically loaded at boot with no need to add it in /etc/rc.conf.
 
 
 
You can manage your wireless connections with [[NetworkManager]] or [[Wicd]].
 
 
 
=Power Management=
 
 
 
==CPU frequency scaling==
 
 
 
===The laptop-mode-utils way===
 
 
 
You probably want to use laptop-mode-utils with acpi.
 
# pacman -S laptop-mode-utils acpi
 
 
 
=Xorg=
 
 
 
You'll want ''xf86-video-intel''
 
 
 
You'll get a really jumpy touchpad if you do not install ''xf86-input-synaptics''
 
 
 
=Issues=
 
Adjusting the backlight requires additions to the kernel boot options.
 
 
 
Add ''acpi_osi=Linux acpi_brightness=vendor'' to [[kernel parameters]].
 
 
 
The ''Fn + Left/Right Arrow'' keyboard combinations will now decrease/increase the backlight.
 
 
 
Adding
 
  echo 450 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
 
to /etc/rc.local will adjust the backlight brightness down during boot.
