Arch linux & Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro 2000

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, 760MB 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

ETHERNET

add driver b44 to loaded modules in /etc/rc.conf and to modprobe.conf, add

alias eth0 b44

XORG CONFIGURATION, using arch's HW detection: hwd pacman -S xorg hwd This will write a new xorg.conf: hwd -xa

SOUND pacman -S alsa-lib alsa-utils alsa-oss use alsamixer to set the default volume, use "m" to mute and unmute. Write the defaults with: alsactl store add "alsa" to loaded daemons in /etc/rc.conf add user to audio group: gpasswd -a username audio

TOUCHPAD

It works with the driver installed by hwd, but lacks most functions. Install the synapctics driver with pacman -S synaptics

replace hwd-generated mouse configuration bit that looks like this:

Section "InputDevice"

      Identifier  "PS/2 Mouse"
.
[etc etc]
.

EndSection

with synaptics configuration (thanks to Iphitus):

Section "Input Device"

       Identifier  "Synaptics Mouse"
       Driver      "synaptics"
       Option      "Device"              "/dev/psaux"
       Option      "Protocol"            "auto-dev"

       Option      "BottomEdge"          "4200"
       Option      "FingerLow"           "25"

       Option      "MinSpeed"            "0.09"
       Option      "MaxSpeed"            "0.18"
       Option      "AccelFactor"         "0.0015"
       Option      "EmulateMidButtonTime""100"
       Option      "EdgeMotionMinZ"      "30"
       Option      "EdgeMotionMaxZ"      "35"
       Option      "EdgeMotionMinSpeed"  "100"
       Option      "EdgeMotionMaxSpeed"  "150"
       Option      "EdgeMotionUseAlways" "off"
       Option      "TapButton1"          "1"
       Option      "RBCornerButton"      "3"
       Option      "LBCornerButton"      "2"
       Option      "CoastingSpeed"       "0.1"
       Option      "SHMConfig"           "on"

EndSection

Don't forget to add this to the ServerLayout section in the beginning of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, and remove the previous mouse.

Section "ServerLayout" ..blaa blaa..

       InputDevice    "Synaptics Mouse" "CorePointer"

ACCESS TO DEVICES Add user to groups (given you have created a user): gpasswd -a username video gpasswd -a username optical gpasswd -a username storage


WIRELESS LAN

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
         Bit Rate=11 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm
         Retry limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
         Encryption key:off
         Power Management:off
         Link Quality=91/100  Signal level=-38 dBm  Noise level=-82 dBm
         Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
         Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:3


USB

Works normally, memorystick has to be mounted by superuser, although there are programs like submount one can install to automate it.

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

HOTKEYS

don't work

CARD SLOTS
