Intro

Summary

To do

  • eSata test
  • HDMI test

Hardware

Working

Ethernet

Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02) Works out of the box.

DVDRW

ATAPI: TSSTcorp DVD+/-RW TS-L633J, D200, max UDMA/100

CD-ROM TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L633J D200 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5

Using driver: scsi3-mmc

Supported extensions:

24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

Successfully burns both cd mediums and dvd mediums, tested using K3B 2.0.2-1.

Touchpad

It is using the synaptic driver.

Works ok after installing the package xf86-input-synaptics.

Todo: Needs tweaking, cause it is too anoying.

Use this script to disable the touch pad when you do not like it:

#!/bin/bash

if [ $(synclient -l | grep TouchpadOff | gawk -F '= ' '{ print $2 }') -eq 0 ]; then
    synclient TouchpadOff=1
else
    synclient TouchpadOff=0
fi

Wireless

Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) In kernel 2.6 it works out of the box, but in kernel 3.0 there is no wlan0, we have to blacklist some modules.

So open "/etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf" and append the following line:

blacklist bcma

now, reboot or restart the kernel.

When we issue iwconfig, it should now list wlan0:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

Bluetooth

Both pairing, sending files and receiving files works out of the box, tested with blueman.

VGA

Tested on an external CRT monitor, works out of the box on KDE 4.7.

Graphic adapter

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5600 working out of the box.

Audio

Display

Available sizes:

1366x768       60.0*+
1280x720       59.9

720x480        59.7  
640x480        59.4

Brightness controls work out of the box.

Suspending to disk (Hibernation)

works out of the box - tested on KDE 4.7

Suspending to ram (Sleep)

works out of the box - tested on KDE 4.7

Sensors

We got 3 sensors:

  • radeon-pci-0100
  • acpitz-virtual-0
  • acpi termal zone 0 Temperature

They work out of the box.

Troubleshoot

  • On boot the following error is printed:

boot error message:

Workaround:

Blacklist the intel_ips module, open configuration file "/etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf" and add:

blacklist intel_ips
