Summary

Dell XPS M1330 works quite well out of the box with Arch. I have to report only two small problems :

  • sound is not working with Alsa 1.0.16 and kernel 2.6.24.4
  • suspend with pm-suspend having acpi-cpufreq running causes CPU1 to stop.

Extra media keys

They are recognized by default with evdev so you can directly bind them with Gnome in System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts.

Sound

For some users, sound doesn't appear to work with Alsa 1.0.16 and kernel 2.6.24.4. You can do an ugly fix by recompiling alsa-drivers : first download alsa-driver (for alsa 1.0.16 ONLY), extract them and in alsa-driver folder do :

./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-card-options=hda-codec-sigmatel
make
sudo make install-modules

Reboot and your sound should working ! See related post in Archlinux forum This has been reported as a bug.

Suspend

With acpi-freq running, you might notice that CPU1 is deactivated after using pm-suspend. To fix this you have to unload acpi-freq module. Unfortunately you have to recompile your kernel to authorize module unloading. See this forum topic and this "bug".
