Install xf86-video-intel or xf86-video-intel-newest. Make sure to configure KMS correctly.


Typical Intel HD Audio. Just follow ALSA.

Make sure you have the latest version of alsa-utils, alsa-lib and alsa-firmware.


Swapping eth0/eth1 can confuse Wicd, assigning static names helps.

Wireless Driver (Broadcom)

See Broadcom_wireless for driver setup.

It may be necessary to load the driver (wl as an axample here) manually: Template:File

Problem with reconnecting after suspending might be solved by: Template:File

Driver Overview

  1. brcmsmac: Works best but the red/blue led isn't working.
  2. broadcom-wl: Needs to be compiled newly from the AUR (broadcom-wifi-builder or broadcom-wl) after each kernel upgrade. LED works but reconnecting problem after suspending.
  3. b43: Alternatively your network chip may be supported by b43 (kernel26 > 2.6.32).


See: Bluetooth


Works out of the box.

Suspend on Lid

This here works quite fine: Suspend to RAM#Automatic Suspend, the Hard Way

It might be necessary to use "/etc/acpi/events/lm_lid" instead of "/etc/acpi/events/lid". (laptop-mode?)

Just change the "LID" to it's actual value. For me it was C1D0.


Power Button



Display toggle


# acpi_listen
(Press fn+f2)
video C088 00000080 00000000

So we have to edit


like this Template:File

Mute, browser button, volume down, etc...


Hard disk shock protection

Install hpfall from AUR and add it to rc.conf: Template:File
