This page documents troubleshooting and configuration specific to the Averatec 3320-EH1.

{{note|A similar machine, Averatec 33'''6'''0-EH1, is a Centrino laptop. This means that it has a Pentium M processor and uses Intel wireless (probably ipw2200) so some things are different. However, many configurations might be the same.}}

==Short review==
+
For about $1000 it's a good deal. A good 80GM with 512 RAM is pretty good. The sound card is okay, not much static and the speakers, while quiet (and placed underneath your typing hands--doens't help), serve the purpose. ACPI detects the CPU temperature and the fan works okay, but the laptop can get really hot on the bottom. The screen is horrid. If you worry about other people reading from your screen, you're safe. Actually, it is often the case that you yourself won't be able to see the whole screen clearly because the edges of the screen  won't be at a 90 degree angle with respect to your eyes. Wireless is shot -- more on that later. The CD can get loud, but was never a big problem. Sticky pads kept falling off from the bottom and the case is plastic and not very sturdy. However, the computer is mobile enough and not heavy. The touchpad and keyboard feel natural.

I used to play around with the modules, but then did mkinitrd auto and (almost) everything started working like a charm. My [[xorg]].conf and fstab are pasted below
+
 
+
==Network==
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* 8139too}}
+
Out of the box. Look at Wireless section for wireless.
+
 
+
===Wireless===
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* rt2500}}
+
 
+
'''Note:''' As of kernel 2.6.17 there is no more support for the rt2500 module. This means that you have just joined  me in being screwed. You can still try ndiswrapper or rt2x00.
+
'''Note:''' If you are using kernel 2.6.16, there is still hope for you with the instructions below. You can also try the rt2500 module from the unstable repository which I have noticed in the meantime.
+
 
+
RaLink RT2500 is a tough little card. The drivers derived from the original do not work with SMP kernels, they freeze your whole system upon ifconfig ra0 up (the card shows up as ra0). I had to recompile my kernel. First install [[ABS]]. Then go to /var/abs/local/linux/ or whatever. Edit config from:
+
<pre>
+
CONFIG_SMP=y
+
</pre>
+
to
+
<pre>
+
# CONGIG SMP is not set
+
</pre>
+
You will need to md5sum config and update the PKGBUILD. Then makepkg PKGBUILD and it will buzz off into the sunset producing a kernel that works with the rt2500 module.
+
Use the [http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/rt2400/rt2500-1.1.0-b3.tar.gz beta3] version of the rt2500 driver. Others didn't even compile with me.
+
Remember: backup you current kernel (just copy the file and mkinitrd image to another name in boot and edit your bootloader) in case something BAD happens.
+
 
+
If you do not want to recompile your kernel every time you update you (maybe) have two options:
+
* [[Ndiswrapper_and_wpa_supplicant]] - iwconfig, iwlist didn't work for me;
+
* [[Rt2x00]] - dhcpcd didn't work for me.
+
 
+
I never made use of the wireless button.
+
 
+
==Video==
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* i810}}
+
I remember having some trouble with the video drivers during some kernel (2.6.13 abouts) but that didn't last. Just pacman -S xf86-video-i810 and you should be fine. Use the vesa module if you have problems.
+
 
+
==Audio==
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* snd-intel8x0}}
+
Follow this wiki's [[ALSA]] setup.
+
 
+
==Card readers==
+
===PCMCIA===
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* yenta_socket
+
* ???}}
+
Never used it.
+
 
+
===Flash card reader===
+
{{sn|relevant modules:
+
* ???}}
+
Never used it. On a brighter note, with autofs all my flash devices worked on plug in.
