Hardware

NIC

Works out of the box.


Power Management

Power management does not work out of the box as ACPI is unsupported on this laptop but it does support APM.

pacman -S apmd

Edit the DEAMONS line in /etc/rc.conf accordingly. You may also want to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and add the following to the kernel line:

acpi=off apm=power_off nolapic noapic
