Introduction

Small howto for installing arch on the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810tz

Live ISO

Note: I had problems with the arch boot ISO 2009 08 - eth0 was not able to connect due to network card being unsupported with the current Live ISO kernel. Using the testing images form build.archlinux.org resolves this with a new kernel that does support the network card out of the box.

Wireless

Detailed info found at Wireless

pacman -S iwlwifi-1000-uncode 

Wired

Out of the box with Kernel ≥2.6.32.X.

xorg

Detailed info found at Xorg

pacman -S  xorg-server xorg xf86-input-synaptics xf86-input-keyboard xf86-video-intel 

start hal

/etc/rc.d/hal start

if you have a window manager installed, the .xinitrc configured you can now do a startx without a xorg.conf


glxgears

2304 frames in 5.0 seconds = 460.703 FPS
2361 frames in 5.0 seconds = 472.187 FPS
2193 frames in 5.0 seconds = 438.557 FPS
2815 frames in 5.0 seconds = 562.992 FPS

Touchpad

KMS

Enable Intel KMS. This works quite nice.

Sound

Detailed info found at Alsa

pacman -S alsa-utils
alsaconf
alsamixer

add alsa to /etc/rc.conf.

Powersaving

enable power saving wireless(add to /etc/rc.local)

iwconfig wlan0 power on

CPU scaling

add following modules to /etc/rc.conf

acpi_cpufreq cpufreq_conservative

append to /ect/rc.local

echo conservative > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
echo conservative > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor

powertop

powertop can give some nice hints how to save power.

add to /etc/rc.local

echo min_power > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/link_power_management_policy
echo 1500 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs

tmpfs

Stop writing logs and tmp stuff to the Hard-drive.

Warning: All logs will be gone after reboot

add to /etc/fstab

none	/var/log	tmpfs	size=10M	0	0
none	/tmp	tmpfs	size=100M	0	0
none	/var/tmp	tmpfs	size=20M	0	0

noatime

Added noatime to all my partitions in /etc/fstab to reduce hdd IO. This is usually done when using an SSD but i think it can't harm if i also use it on my normal Hard drive.

/dev/sda3 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1

Suspend

pm-suspend seems to work out of the box X/sound/wireless come up with out a hick. pm-hibernate needs some configuration - havent tried it yet. More info can be found on the pm-utils page. I bound pm-suspend to the power key.
