XORG CONFIGURATION

See the Beginners Guide for details

using the ATI catalyst driver

pacman -S catalyst

using the open source driver

You have the choice between the radeon and radeonhd driver. However you need a new DRM Kernel Module to get direct rendering. The new DRM module should be included in Kernel 2.6.26 so either updgrade or get the libdrm-git package from AUR. You should also install XOrg Server from git using the xorg-server-git package from AUR. (this will take some time). Dont forget xf86-input-mouse-git and xf86-input-keyboard-git.


Search AUR for xf86-video-ati-git and use this driver. The easyest way is propaply yaourt for installing the driver.

I'm getting arround 500fps in glxgears. (950fps with catalyst)


For more information visit www.phoronix.com for driver updates

SOUND

Works out of the box. Don't forget to add your user to the audio group.

Check here for more info about how to set up sound: http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ALSA_Setup

TOUCHPAD

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
    gpasswd -a username audio

WIRELESS LAN

Madwifi

The Atheros AR5007 currently doesnt work out of the box. but it works using a patch. Read
Read http://madwifi.org/ticket/1679 for details.


The easy way:

Please download the following Package from AUR: Madwifi with new HAL in AUR

You need to unrar the Package, type makepkg and then install the new build package (pacman -A madwifi-xxxxx-i686.tar.gz) Or (using yaourt) yaourt -S madwifi-newhal-git.

Now your wlan card should be recognised. Maybe you should also blacklist the ath5k kernel module by adding "!ath5k" into the modules section in /etc/rc.conf


A bit more complicated but also working (only for 32bit systems):

The madwifi package with included patch can be downloaded from: http://snapshots.madwifi.org/special/madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz
After downloading:
Untar the package

tar xvf madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz

change into the madwifi folder

cd madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007

compile madwifi

make

install

make install

then add ath_pci and wlan to your modules section in rc.conf

Ndiswrapper
