==Configuration==
 
===Clickpad===
 
The clickpad works with the xf86-input-synaptic driver from extra, but the left/right click buttons at the bottom of the clickpad do not work.
 
 
 
Install [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=38120 xf86-input-synaptics-clickpad] from the [[AUR]].
 
 
 
===Video===
 
In order to use the builtin intel graphics adapter you will have to install the corresponding drivers:
 
# pacman -S xf86-video-intel
 
 
 
====Dual Monitors====
 
'''Clone:'''
 
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output HDMI1 --auto --same-as LVDS1
 
 
 
'''Extended:'''
 
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --output HDMI1 --auto --right-of LVDS1
 
 
 
'''Disable Second Monitor'''
 
xrandr --output LVDS1 --output HDMI1 --off
 
 
 
Check out the xrandr man page for more info
 
 
 
===Ethernet===
 
#Use the {{pkg|r8168}} module in the [[Official Repositories]]
 
#Blacklist r8169 (follow pacman install message)
 
#Add r8168 to rc.conf
 
 
 
There are some issues with the r8169 module:
 
*Kernel 3.1.5: Does not work
 
*Kernel >= 3.1.4: Mileage may vary, typically can't reconnect
 
 
 
===Wireless===
 
====Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000====
 
Works out of the box. Module: '''iwlagn'''
 
 
 
===Sound===
 
Works out of the box. Module: '''snd-hda-intel'''
 
 
 
===Webcam===
 
Works out of the box. Tested using Skype
 
 
 
===Power===
 
Suspend and Hibernation both work using [[pm-utils]]
 
Note: Hibernation did not work on 2.6.38.2 (works with 2.6.38.3)
 
 
 
==Troubleshooting==
 
===Delay with Space Bar===
 
'''Solution:''' Update BIOS (at least 1.08)
 
 
 
===Trackpoint is NOT detected or is detected after X minutes===
 
This appears to be a kernel bug. See: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33292
 
 
 
A workaround is passing proto=bare to the psmouse module. However this disable scrolling with the clickpad and the two finger middle click.
 
modprobe psmouse proto=bare
