A hub error message is printed repeatedly:

hub 1-0:1.0: connect-debounce failed, port 6 disabled

A workaround is to disable the laptop's wi-fi device in BIOS.


See Intel Graphics.


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

Wireless Network

  • install ipw3945 daemon and kernel module according this wiki article. Modify /etc/rc.conf

note: for kernel26 install ipw3945, for kernel26beyond install ipw3945-beyond, etc.


To disk (swap)

using the kernel26beyond:

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

# (0) Arch Linux
title  Arch Linux
root   (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26beyond root=/dev/sda6 resume2=swap:/dev/sda5 ro
initrd /boot/kernel26beyond.img

where /dev/sda5 is my swap device and /dev/sda6 is my root device.

  • edit /etc/hibernate/hibernate.conf:

TryMethod suspend2.conf
#TryMethod disk.conf
#TryMethod ram.conf

  • edit /etc/hibernate/suspend2.conf:

UseSuspend2 yes
Reboot no
EnableEscape yes
DefaultConsoleLevel 1
Compressor lzf
Encryptor none

SuspendDevice swap:/dev/sda5

PowerdownMethod 5

ProcSetting user_interface/program /usr/sbin/suspend2ui_text

FullSpeedCPU yes

Include common.conf

all other settings are commented.

  • edit /etc/hibernate/common.conf

Verbosity 0
LogFile /var/log/hibernate.log
LogVerbosity 1

Distribution arch (or debian/fedora/gentoo/mandrake/redhat/slackware/suse)

SaveClock restore-only

Runi915resolution yes

UnloadBlacklistedModules yes
LoadModules auto

SwitchToTextMode yes

--colour=Green --shadow 1 --pos bottom --align center --offset 50

all other settings are commented.

  • edit /etc/mkinitcpio.conf to contain:

HOOKS="base udev autodetect ide scsi sata resume filesystems"

  • run mkinitcpio:

mkinitcpio -p kernel26beyond

  • now you might be able to hibernate your system:


Suspend - kernel 2.6.37-ARCH

  • Frozen touchpad after wake can be fixed with kernel parameter atkbd.reset. Only tried with grub2. To add the parameter, you need to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg

legacy_kernel '/vmlinuz26' '/vmlinuz26' 'root=/dev/sda5' 'resume=/dev/sda7' 'ro' 'atkbd.reset'

Power management

  • Install laptop-mode-tools and add laptop-mode to DAEMONS section of your /etc/rc.conf

  • Install powersaved and add powersaved to DAEMONS section of your /etc/rc.conf
    Add speedstep_centrino to CPUFREQD_MODULE section of your /etc/powersave/cpufreq

  • Install cpudyn and acpid, add cpudyn and acpid to DAEMONS section of your /etc/rc.conf
    Add speedstep_centrino, cpufreq_powersave, cpufreq_userspace and freq_table to MODULES section of your /etc/rc.conf

echo "ondemand" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
echo "ondemand" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor

to /etc/rc.local.

Note: Use cpufreq-info to see if the frequency scaling works.


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".
