Another work in Progress - by PhrakTure I am currently running Arch on this laptop, 98% problem free... and no I have not yet configured the media card reader, as I have no use for it. If anyone really has a problem, let me know (PM from forums).

Modules

  • Ethernet: 8139too
  • Wireless: ndiswrapper using BCMWL5A [pkg] [PKGBUILD]
  • Audio: snd-intel-8x0 / snd-pcm-oss
  • Video: nvidia [1]

Other

  • Composite: works, but gets goofy with flash animations in Firefox

Unusual settings

  • Video mode detected wrong
    Add the following to the device (nvidia driver) section in xorg.conf
    Option "IgnoreEDID" "True"
  • And the following line to the "Monitor" section
    Modeline "1440x900"  106.47  1440 1520 1672 1904  900 901 904 932  -hsync +vsync

The following Display Subsection (in the Screen Section) will allow you to use the display's native viewing mode.

 Subsection "Display"
  Depth       24
  Modes "1440x900"
  Virtual 1440 900
