Reason: Only general configuration, relies on rc.conf. (Discuss in Talk:HP Mini 2140#)

The HP Mini 2140 is a 10.2" Netbook PC released in early 2009.

Hardware Compatibility


Video is supported with "intel" driver, replace "vesa" in your xorg.conf with "intel". Kernel Mode-Setting is also possible.


Works, you need to add "synaptics" support to your xorg.conf


This netbook uses the Broadcom BCM4312 wireless modem. This modem is not supported by either the b43 or STA drivers included as part of the Linux kernel. In order to be able to use wifi, the broadcom-wl package from the Arch User Repository needs to be installed. Instructions for using makepkg and PKGBUILD can be found on their respective wiki pages. Further information about Broadcom wireless modem issues is covered in it's own wiki page.

After installing the driver, you need to have it loaded during boot, usually achieved by making the following edits to /etc/rc.conf:


MODULES=(lib80211 wl !b43 !ssb)


Any other modules listed to be loaded should remain as is and the above mentioned modules added to the list. The following may also work, but if not, use the above:





Marvell Gigabit Ethernet - Use sky2 module.


Bluetooth - Works

CPU Scaling

Works (acpi_cpufreq module)


Works (uvcvideo module)


This netbook uses an Intel High Definition Audio AD1984A sound card. For general information on setting up sound see Sound and Advanced Linux Sound Architecture. To activate the sound card, follow the steps detailed on the ALSA page. Before running "speaker-test -c 2" as instructed, create a file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf and enter the following into it:

options snd-hda-intel model=laptop

Now reboot and you should hear sound when running "speaker-test -c 2". As per the ALSA page, save your mixer settings so that they are loaded with each boot.
