This will need a kernel higher than 2.6.10!
 
(note that upgrading Arch 0.7 with pacman -Su will break the system unless the DevFS->Udev transition is made after the install, see guidelines here: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=15585)
 
 
 
pacman -S ipw2200
 
Add ipw2200 to loaded modules in rc.conf
 
 
 
Append rc.conf to include eth1 (this is a static IP configuration)
 
eth0="eth0 192.168.2.253 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255"
 
eth1="eth1 192.168.2.252 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.2.255"
 
INTERFACES=(lo eth0 eth1)
 
 
 
and to modprobe.conf, add line
 
 
 
alias eth1 ipw2200
 
 
 
Requires a "kill switch" module that turns the wireless card radio on..
 
get fsam7400 module (0.4.0) from http://linux.zwobbl.de/pub/
 
unpack and install with make, make install. Don't need to add it to the loaded modules in /etc/rc.conf.
 
 
 
add the following to /etc.rc.local to automate wireless connection (thanks to nahoj1976):
 
 
 
echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout
 
modprobe fsam7400 radio=1 autooff=0 autoload=0
 
modprobe ipw2200
 
 
 
After this just use the iwconfig and route settings need to be ok for the wireless to work (after reboot of course, unless you modprobe the above yourself!). In my case
 
 
 
iwconfig eth1 essid Mynetworkname mode Managed rate 11M
 
route add default 192.168.2.1 eth1
 
 
 
these can be in /etc/rc.local. Now the laptp will be online and iwconfig (from root) should give something like this:
 
 
 
eth1      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"Mynetworkname"
 
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: 00:11:50:34:A9:53

This info may be helpful in addition to the Arch Linux Installation guide. This may apply fairly well to many other Amilo computers, for example to M7400 which has very similar hardware.

LAPTOP SPECS

IntelCeleron 1500Mhz, 256+512MB ram, 40Gb HD, CD-RW/DVD (QSI). Display adapter Intel 82852/82855. IrDA Fast Infrared, AC'97 Modem, PS/2 Keyboard & Synaptics Mouse, 3 USB ports, Firewire, 2 card slots. Network adapters:Broadcom 440x 10/100 and Intel PRO/Wireless 2200GB.

TOUCHPAD

See Touchpad Synaptics

WIRELESS LAN

See Wireless Setup#ipw2100 and ipw2200.

ACPI

Seems to work normally: Battery life is visible automatically (in KDE at least), and screen goes to power saving mode after a period of inactivity.

MONITOR OUT

Works

S-OUT

not tested

IRDA

not tested

HOTKEYS, SPECIAL BUTTONS

Alt+Function key commands work ok. For left-side buttons, in kernel is a module called wistron_btns, it also drive the RadioSwitch.

CARD SLOTS

not tested
