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

Warning: This should be actually the right way, but on my machine I get no sound at all. I'll edit this, when I found a working solution (with some additional steps)

This Notebook has a Realtek ALC 833 soundcard. To get your S/PDIF 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

There are two possible drivers you can use for the Nvidia 6150 Geforce Go. I recommend the non-free driver, because the open one had no mouse cursor as I tried it (which was really annoying). If you want 3d-allocation, you must use the closed source one.

nv (free driver)

Installation:

pacman -Sy nv

Here's no customized xorg.conf yet. Go make one yourself following this guide and post it here.

nvidia (non-free driver)

Installation:

pacman -Sy nvidia

Note: The xorg.conf is based on this one which was made for gentoo.[1]

Save the following as /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
