Known Errors:

Touchpad and Keyboard Aren't working The solution is to add i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset to the end of the kernel line of the grub menu config at

/boot/grub/menu.lst

Example:

# (0) Arch Linux

title  Arch Linux

root   (hd0,2)

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux root=/dev/sda3 ro i8042.nomux=1 i8042.reset

initrd /boot/initramfs-linux.img


Graphics: This model has the a6-3400m apu with an integrated radeon HD 6520g. This is problematic during the livecd install. If you do not hit tab at the arch boot screen and add "radeon.modeset=0" to the kernel line, you will end up with a black screen. After install, use the proprietary Catalyst driver, as the opensource one has multiple problems.

Audio: Alsa does not work. The central speaker, PCM, won't show up under alsa until pulseaudio is installed. Pulseaudio works perfectly with the audio system, even enabling mic input without a hitch.

Webcam: It is a v4l2 webcam, works perfectly.

Hibernate/Suspend: For a reason that I have not been able to figure out, the pm-utils and the uswsusp packages both fail to suspend the laptop. Trying to use them leaves one at a screen that is black but with the backlight enabled. It will sit here for hours, running up the cpu fans and killing battery. Do not use pm-suspend! The only tools that I have had work so far are the ones integrated into DEs. xfce4-session-logout does both perfectly. It is part of the xfce4-session package, and is scriptable by using command-line parameters to bypass the necessity for a graphical display.


xfce4-session-logout -s or --suspend      will suspend
xfce4-session-logout --hibernate          will hibernate


I'm sure there are other workarounds, but this one works the best for me.
