Configuration

Network

Both wired and wireless network works out-of-the-box. Atheros card requires ath9k module, Realtek ethernet card requires r8169 module. More information on Wireless Setup#ath9k

Note: With some revisions of this Realtek ethernet card, one may find better performance from the Realtek provided r8168 module, available in the official repositories.

Bluetooth

Sending/receiving files, switching bluetooth on/off works. Requires ath3k module.

Graphics

Intel HD3000 card is supported by open-source xf86-video-intel driver. Dual-head with HDMI works.

pacman -S xf86-video-intel

Brightness

Controlling brightness with Fn+F2 and Fn+F3 buttons works in Gnome 3, did not test in other DEs.

Touchpad

Works with xf86-input-synaptics package. Could not get it to switch off while double tapped in top-left corner, like it worked in Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, which was factory OS. Tested tapping, two- and three-finger tapping and two-finger scrolling.

pacman -S xf86-input-synaptics

Miscellaneous hardware

Card reader

23:00.0 System peripheral: JMicron Technology Corp. SD/MMC Host Controller (rev 30)
23:00.2 SD Host controller: JMicron Technology Corp. Standard SD Host Controller (rev 30)
23:00.3 System peripheral: JMicron Technology Corp. MS Host Controller (rev 30)

SD cards tested and working. Memory Stick cards do not work, despite having module jmb38x_ms loaded. Dmesg does not show any info about Memory Stick card being inserted. With 3.4.7 kernel, Memory Stick card works as intended.

Function keys

Module hp-wmi is likely to be required for the keys to work. In Gnome 3 every Fn+F* key works. Fn-F6 key requires gnome-power-manager installed. Keys above numeric keypad are also recognized. The Web key has a XF86HomePage symbol (opens home page) and Wi-Fi key has NoSymbol and does nothing.

Camera

Works with uvcvideo module.

Power

Module acpi-cpufreq and at least one of CPU governors (cpufreq_ondemand, cpufreq_conservative, etc.) are required. More informations on CPU Frequency Scaling.

Note: i915 module parameter i915_enable_rc6 can give up to 2 hours of additional battery life. However it is considered unstable and might cause crashes and graphical glitches. Add i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 to your kernel line in bootloader to try it.
Note: With laptop-mode-tools, tune from powertop2 and i915_enable_rc6 parameter I was able to get about 5:30h of estimated battery life.

Suspend/hibernation

Both suspend and hibernation work with pm-utils and kernel backend.

Sensors

Lm-sensors shows one acpitz-virtual device with 4 working temperature readings and coretemp-isa device which has one sensor for each CPU core. It does not show any info about fans RPMs.

pacman -S lm_sensors
