Introduction

On this page, I'll try to guide you how to configure Archlinux distribution on HP Pavillion dv5-1000 series laptop. The main purpose of this howto is the post installation configuration and installing additional pakages to make the basic installtion useful. If you have something to add please contribute to this page.

Installation

Archlinux installation is easy and there is palnty of information availabe from this Wiki. I will suggest using these documentation for the basic installation. you should also install a desktop environment. I will give some details here for gnome destop and detail instruction use the wiki search function. Vist this useful site miggols99's blog.

Configurations

Networking

HP Pavillion dv5-1000 have the following networking devices.

 Wifi controller
 	Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
 	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 137c
 Ethernet controller
 	Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)
 	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 3602

Graphic Card and Xorg

HP Pavilion dv5-1000 have a Mobile X4500MHD Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller, so you must have the package xf86-video-intel installed. If it is not already installed then install it as follows:

sudo pacman -Sy f86-video-intel

in order to configure the card properly you must use intel as Driver in Device section of xorg.conf file e.g. my xorg.conf file look like this.

Sound

 Multimedia controller
 	IDT integrated Audio HDMI v1.3
 	Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
 	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 3602

Making the sound system work gaves me tuff time and after words an inspiration for writing this Wiki article. you need Alsa pakages to make it work so first of all install these pakages:

pacman -Sy alsa-lib alsa-utils alsa-oss

Now edit the file /etc/modprobe.d/sound with a text editor if the file does not exist then create one and add the following at the start:

options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1
options snd slots=snd-hda-intel
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel

if the file /etc/modprobe.d/sound already contain some options it is better to remove them. After making the above changes reboot when the system become functional again make sure that you unmute the front speakers and then test the sound by playing some media file.

alsamixer
alsactl store

while running alsamixer use F4 function key. you can add "alsactl restore" to your rc.local file to restore sound setting after bootup.
