Introduction

Since I had a hard time getting my Laptop working with Arch (especially sound drivers) I decided to write this wiki entry to make it easier for people with the same problem. I may expand it later, but the SPDI/F ports took me like three days, so here we go.

MD stands for "Medion", that brand you can buy PCs at ALDI from.

Soundcard

This Notebook has a Realtek ALC 833 soundcard. To get your SPDI/F ports working, add

  options snd-hda-intel model=medion

to /etc/modprobe.conf

Also my /etc/modprobe.d/sound looks like this (I'm not sure whether this will help you):

   alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
   alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel

Graphicscard

The MD 98300 has a Nvidia 6150 Geforce Go. I tested the "nv" drivers, but I had no mouse cursor there. The non-free drivers ("nvidia"-package) work fine. The following is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf based on this one which is made for gentoo (see here) for use with the non-free nvidia driver.
