The intel graphics work fine out of the box. Unfortunately, the hybrid graphics setup is muxless, so {{ic|vgaswitcheroo}} won't work. There is some work in progress towards getting the muxless AMD/Intel setup workingTry [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Hybrid_graphics#ATI_Dynamic_Switchable_Graphics here] if you ''really'' need the hybrid graphics.

{{ic|snd-hda-intel}} does not load automatically for a 5 channel setup.  It must be loaded with {{ic|1=model=ref}} for the subwoofer to work.  However, loading with {{ic|1=model=ref}} results in the internal speakers remaining on while headphones are plugged in.  To prevent this, {{ic|snd-hda-intel}} must be loaded with {{ic|1=mode=auto}}.  One example of how to deal with this is to append
+
<pre>options snd-hda-intel model=auto</pre>
+
to {{ic|/etc/modprobe.d/audio.conf}}.  This will load the card without the subwoofer, but with headphone muting at boot.  In order to switch, force unload the module ({{ic|# rmmod -f snd-hda-intel}}) and reload it with the other setting (e.g {{ic|1=# modprobe snd-hda-intel model=ref}}).  This has been flagged as an upstream bug [https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=49391 here].

Video

Works by following http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/1nu4pc/muxless_graphics_cards_on_linux/. I strongly recommend switching to linux-mainline (AUR) to take advantage of power-management built into 3.12.

Audio

hdajackretast in the package extra/alsa-tools can be used to remap the unconnected 0x10 pin to the subwoofer (Internal Speaker LFE).

SD Card Reader

As of 3.8 a third party module is not needed, device is accessible @ /dev/mmcX

The module for pre 3.8 rts5229 is in the AUR.
