Add user to groups (given you have created a user):

See [[Wireless network configuration#ipw2100 and ipw2200]].
This will (apparently) 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). If you install from 0.7.1, you can ignore this problem.
+
 
+
For wireless, the relevant driver is ipw2200.
+
 
+
    pacman -S ipw2200
+
From kernel 2.6.17 it is included and the relevant module is
+
    pacman -S ipw2200-fw
+
which only loads the firmware.
+
 
+
Add ipw2200 to loaded modules in rc.conf.
+
 
+
Append rc.conf to include eth1 (this is a static IP configuration),
+
 
+
    eth0="eth0 192.168.2.252 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
+
 
+
Amilo 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.
+
 
+
Then, to automate the wireless connection on boot, add the following to /etc/rc.local (thanks to nahoj1976):
+
 
+
    echo 100 > /sys/class/firmware/timeout
+
    modprobe fsam7400 radio=1 autooff=0 autoload=0
+
    modprobe ipw2200
+
 
+
After this just the iwconfig and route settings need to be ok for the wireless to work (after reboot of course, unless you modprobe the above commands 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 laptop 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
+
 
+
 
+
If you want to connect to a secure network, WEP-encrypted, one way to do this is to write a small script. After boot you decide what script to run depending on what network you should connect to.
+
 
+
A typical setup-script could look like this:
+
  # /etc/rc.d/work
+
  # script to connect to network at work
+
  iwconfig eth1 key 1234567890 channel 6
+
  ifconfig eth0 down
+
  dhcpcd eth1
+
This script both select the right key and channel for the router and uses dynamic ip-addresses in order not to need thinking about DNS-server addresses etc.
+
 
+
==USB==
+
 
+
Works normally. Create directory /mnt/stick, and add the following to fstab:
+
 
+
    /dev/sda1  /mnt/stick  vfat    rw,user,noauto,umask=0000    0    0
+
 
+
then the stick can be mounter by user with: mount /mnt/stick.
+
 
+
Another way is to use the autofs module:
+
  pacman -S autofs
+
More info you can get from:
+
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AutoFS_HowTo
+
 
+
That way you can get all usb-sticks, cd's and other stuff automatically mounted on connection. This is a configuration that works:
+
 
+
/etc/autofs/auto.master
+
    /media /etc/autofs/auto.media --timeout 3
+
 
+
/etc/conf.d/autofs
+
  # e.g. localoptions='rsize=8192,wsize=8192'
+
  localoptions=''
+
 
+
  # e.g. --timeout=60
+
  daemonoptions='-g'
+
 
+
 
+
/etc/autofs/auto.media
+
  cdrom -fstype=iso9660,ro,nodev,nosuid :/dev/cdrom
+
  usbG -fstype=auto,async,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 :/dev/sda1
+
  usbH -fstype=auto,async,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 :/dev/sda2
+
  usbI -fstype=auto,async,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 :/dev/sdb1
+
  usbJ -fstype=auto,async,nodev,nosuid,umask=000 :/dev/sdb2
+
Make sure you create the directories needed:
+
  /media/cdrom
+
  /media/usbG
+
  /media/usbH
+
  /media/usbI
+
  /media/usbJ
+
 
+
 
+
/etc/autofs/auto.misc
+
  kernel        -ro   ftp.kernel.org:/pub/linux
+
  boot         -fstype=ext2   :/dev/hda1
+
  removable -fstype=ext2   :/dev/hdd
+
  cd -fstype=iso9660,ro   :/dev/hdc
+
  floppy -fstype=auto   :/dev/fd0
+
Here you can add other filesystems if needed.
+
 
+
Finally add this line to rc.local
+
/etc/rc.d/autofs start
+

Revision as of 15:01, 15 February 2014

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 network configuration#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
