Wired Ethernet

Have to load module broadcom then tg3. eg: MODULES=(broadcom tg3)


The Broadcom BCM4313 card requires the broadcom-wl module which is available in the AUR.


  • This came from Lenovo ideapad s10 ...
  • So far I have not been able to get keyboard/touchpad to work with or without xorg.conf
  • use vga=866 for the kernel line in Template:Filename

The xf86-video-intel driver works well with no xorg.conf. 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. If you only have 512 MB of RAM, you will use it up quickly. XFCE runs with more acceptable speed. LXDE (or just Openbox) feels even more responsive. Lighter is definitely better on this machine, especially if you haven't installed more RAM.





SD Card Reader

Works right out of the box (in fact you can even install arch directly on it with grub.)
