Reason: please use the first argument of the template to provide a brief explanation. (Discuss in Talk:Averatec 3320-EH1#)

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

Note: A similar machine, Averatec 3360-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.

See the Beginners' Guide for installation instructions.

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

Template:Sn Out of the box. Look at Wireless section for wireless.

Wireless

See Rt2x00 beta driver.

Video

Template:Sn 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

Template:Sn Follow this wiki's ALSA setup.

Card readers

PCMCIA

Template:Sn Never used it.

Flash card reader

Template:Sn Never used it. On a brighter note, with autofs all my flash devices worked on plug in.
