In this page, i'll try to make your Arch installation on HP Pavillion dv1000 series as easy as i can, If you have something to add please contribute to this page

What does work?

Wifi using ipw2200 drivers

Touchpad using synaptics drivers

Remote Control, when you'll have ur multimedia keys working, Remote control works out of the box

suspend to ram/swap

Texas Intrument card reader

What does not work?


Boot with your Arch CD without any option, u don't need acpi=off for this laptop, Partition the way you like but leave 204MB+ of free space unpartioned in order to install Quickplay later, You may need to follow any Installation guide on the wiki


Graphic Card and Xorg

HP Pavilion dv1000 have an i810 compatible Video card, so you must have the package xf86-video-i810 and u must use i810 as Driver, your Device section should look like this

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device Number 1"
	Driver		"i810"					# xf86-video-i810 Package
	BusID		"PCI:0:2:0"				# Reported by lspci
	VideoRam	65536					# This will force Xorg to allocate 65Mb for the video card
	Screen		0

The monitor runs under resolution 1280x768 I achieved 75Hz with my configurations which i think the best you can achieve with this monitor,your monitor section should look like this:

Section "Monitor"
	Identifier	"LCD Monitor"
	Option		"DPMS"
	HorizSync	28.0 - 96.0
	VertRefresh	50.0 - 75.0
	UseModes	"Mode 1280 x 768 @ 75 Hz"

Section "Modes"
	Identifier "Mode 1280 x 768 @ 75 Hz"
	# 1280x768 @ 75.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 60.15 kHz; pclk: 102.98 MHz
	Modeline	"1280x768_75.00"  102.98  1280 1360 1496 1712  768 769 772 802  -HSync +Vsync

For a complete xorg.conf file please use Mine and Email me in case you made any improvements, Also you can share your xorg.conf in the section below

You have to use ipw2200 in order to make your wifi connection work... So first let's see if your kernel support it

zcat /proc/config.gz | grep IPW2200

the output should look like


or like


Arch stock kernel does support ipw2200

Now install the package ipw2200 and add to /etc/modprobe.conf the below line

options ipw2200 led=1


The sound will work out of the box, make sure you have alsa-lib alsa-utils alsa-oss packages installed, add urself to audio group and that's it...
