using the kernel26beyond:
* install kernel26beyond, hibernate-script and userui:
* edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to contain ''resume2=swap:/dev/sdXX'':

initrd /boot/kernel26beyond.img
where /dev/sda5 is my swap device and /dev/sda6 is my root device.
* edit /etc/hibernate/hibernate.conf:

See Intel Graphics.


  • Alsa loads module snd_hda_intel automatically.
  • Run alsaconf.
  • Add the @alsa into /etc/rc.conf DAEMONS section.

Wireless Network

See Wireless#iwl3945, iwl4965 and iwl5000-series wiki article.


See Suspend and Hibernate.

Power management

See Power Management.


To setup windows keys (useful for fluxbox keybindings) as well as multimedia keys (accessed with Fn + the function keys) recognition in X, edit ~/.Xmodmap

keycode 115 = XF86ApplicationLeft 
add mod4 = XF86ApplicationLeft 
keycode 116 = XF86ApplicationRight
add mod4 = XF86ApplicationRight
keycode 117 = XF86MenuKB
keycode 162 = XF86AudioPlay
keycode 164 = XF86AudioStop
keycode 144 = XF86AudioPrev
keycode 153 = XF86AudioNext
keycode 223 = XF86Sleep
keycode 160 = XF86AudioMute
keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume

If you have amarok, configure the global shortcuts, setting the multimedia keys as "alternate".
