This article describes specific steps to configure hardware on the notebook model HP Compaq NX6325.

Wireless

The Broadcom BCM4312 driver is available in AUR and works perfectly. I recommend using Wicd to configure wireless networking.

Power management

Cpufreq, acpi and pm-utils work on this notebook. Please refer to the respective wiki articles on how to configure them:

Audio & Video

Sound works fine, just follow the ALSA how-to.

For 3D graphics, the ATI Catalyst proprietary driver works. Please note that I have not tried the open source driver, so it might work.

Fingerprint, card slots, etc.

As it is the case with other Linux distributions, the fingerprint reader and the card reader are currently not supported.
