Network

Wired Ethernet

This works out of the box

Wireless

Requires the broadcom-wl module which is available in the AUR.

Graphics

The xf86-video-intel driver works well with no xorg.conf needed. After installing xorg,

pacman -S xf86-video-intel

If you startx at this point, you may not have a working keyboard or touchpad. Installing the keyboard and synaptics drivers should fix that.

pacman -S xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-synaptics

If you want to use an external mouse, you may also need

pacman -S xf86-input-mouse

While you can run a full DE like KDE or GNOME, it will be a little sluggish on the S10. XFCE runs with more acceptable speed. LXDE (or just Openbox) feels even more responsive. Lighter is definitely better on this machine.

Sound

Works out of the box but the internal microphone is not turned on by default. Make sure to turn the capture channel on (using the spacebar in alsamixer if you're using that), unmute the internal microphone channel and turn it up.

Also, make sure your user is in group audio. As root,

gpasswd -a username audio

Webcam

Works out of the box. Just make sure your user is in group video. As root,

gpasswd -a username video
