Fan control

Acerhdf [1] is a module you can load to control the fan-speed. Download the latest version, unpack it and follow instructions in the readme file. You probably need to add your bios-version in the config-file. Your bios-version is in the error message when you load the module. Add acerhdf in your rc.conf. If it doesn't work, you can also follow these instructions: Acer Aspire One#acerhdf

Troubleshooting

Touchpad

If the touchpad becomes unresponsive, add the following: [2]

~/.xinitrc
xinput --set-prop "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" "Synaptics Two-Finger Pressure" 280

Video playback

Trying to get it to work:

  • Multithreaded mplayer mplayer-mt-lite-gitAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] does improve the situation but not solve the problem.
    • mplayer -lavdopts threads=4 -vo gl2
  • mplayer-coreavc-svnAUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] tries to install wine so I didn't test it
  • VA-API GPU Acceleration coming for GM45 around Q3 2010 [3].
    • using aur/mplayer-vaapi mplayer -vo vaapi file should play the content with out a problem as soon as support arrives.
