|−|In the KMS section, the 'early' start way of doing things states that the file /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf should be edited and appended to the FILES= section of mkinitcpio. conf. However, isn't it easier to put "i915. modeset=1" on the kernel line in grub? When doing so you don't need to rebuild the initramfs each time you want to try KMS or to temporarily disable it. You can simply edit the kernel line on the grub screen when booting. --[[User:Big gie|Big gie]] 10:53, 15 October 2009 (EDT) |+|

Setting gamma and brightness
Intel offers no way to adjust these at the driver level. Luckily these can be set with
Adding acpi_backlight=vendor to the kernel boot line allows the backlight to be changed on the Intel HD 3000 via xbacklight without root access. Perhaps a note could be added to provide this option.

acpi_backlight=vendor stopped working a few kernels ago. (No. I did not revert to be certain).
However, intel-gpu-tools in the community repository includes the intel_backlight utility which allows one to manually set the backlight level.

Best performance options
In my experience (i5 CPU w/ HD4000, Z77 mobo) the best performance can be had with the following options:
- SNA acceleration method
- Vertical sync enabled
- TearFree option enabled
i915.semaphores=1 kernel option turned on
Using the ck kernel specific to the CPU architecture also seems to make the video performance more consistent, but not necessarily any faster.
