Installation

I've fully copied the system from my former notebook to the new disc and made it booting with grub rescue shell.

Configuration

Clickpad

worked out of the box for my with xf86-input-synaptics 1.6.2-4

In some cases it is necessary to add the following to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-touchpad.conf

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad"
        MatchProduct "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
        Driver "synaptics"
        # fix touchpad resolution
        Option "VertResolution" "100"
        Option "HorizResolution" "65"
        # disable synaptics driver pointer acceleration
        Option "MinSpeed" "1"
        Option "MaxSpeed" "1"
        # tweak the X-server pointer acceleration
        Option "AccelerationProfile" "2"
        Option "AdaptiveDeceleration" "16"
        Option "ConstantDeceleration" "16"
        Option "VelocityScale" "32"

Video

In order to use the builtin intel graphics adapter you will have to install the corresponding drivers:

# pacman -S xf86-video-intel intel-dri libva-intel-driver

Option "AccelMethod" "SNA" in xorg.conf works well for me.

Wireless

Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 (rev c4)

Works out of the box. Module: iwldvm

Sound

Works out of the box. Module: snd-hda-intel

Webcam

Works out of the box (tested using cheese)

Power

Suspend works out of the box. Hibernate works using pm-utils (see Suspend and Hibernate#Kernel). Uswsusp was not tested

Troubleshooting

Brightness control

Brightness can only be switched between darkest and brightest values using OS method. So it's better to use hardware vendor to control it: append "acpi_backlight=vendor" to the grub kernel line!

USB2.0 not working or giving kernel traces

Not sure if this was solved by using acpi_backlight=vendor or by blacklisting these modules I don't use:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf 
blacklist joydev
blacklist pcspkr
blacklist iTCO_vendor_support
blacklist iTCO_wdt
