Introduction

This is a mini guide to configure a Sony Vaio VPCF13Z1E/B on Arch Linux.

Processor Intel Core i7-740QM

Motherboard chipset Intel HM55

Memory 8 GB RAM DDR3 1333 MHz

Graphics chipset Nvidia GeForce GT 425M

Graphics card RAM 1.00GB

Xorg video issues

X server didn't start properly with Nvidia drivers installed by pacman. I use one downloaded fron Nvidia web. Then I installed them by running downloaded script. After thet, the Xserver runs just fine.

Suspend to RAM

While using KDE, suspending uses pm-utils. Because of USB-3 ports it's necessary to unload module xhci_hcd before suspend. This can be done by following steps.

# cp /usr/lib/pm-utils/defaults /etc/pm/config.d/defaults  

Then edit the file in /etc/pm/config.d/defaults with SUSPEND_MODULES="xhci_hcd"
