この文書は、[[Wikipedia:Ultrabook|Ultrabook]]である2013 Sony Vaio Pro [[Wikipedia:Haswell_(microarchitecture)|Haswell]]に[[Arch Linux]]をインストールする手順の手引です。私達が見てきたものの中で、このラップトップはとてもArchフレンドリーだと思います! (^_^)
 
  
== Features ==
 
* Intel Haswell Series CPU (4200U/4500U)
 
* 4/8GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM
 
* 128 to 512GB SSD with read speeds over 1GB/s
 
* 11/13" LED-backlit 1080p IPS screen
 
* Optional touchscreen
 
* Backlit keyboard
 
* Webcam
 
* Wireless: WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, NFC
 
* Sensors: ambilight
 
* Ultra low weight; around 1.1kg for the 13" model
 
 
== Pre-installation ==
 
=== BIOS Configuration ===
 
Get into the BIOS by pushing the assist button when the system is shut off and then hitting ''Start BIOS Setup''. '''Do not''' try to boot from your usb key using ''recovery mode'', instead change the boot order in the BIOS. Make the following changes:
 
Intel(R) AT Support System [Disabled]
 
Secure Boot [Disabled]
 
External Device Boot [Enabled]
 
Select 1st Boot Priority [External Device]
 
If you want to use the legacy boot (non-EFI), change:
 
Boot Mode [Legacy]
 
=== Install media ===
 
* Important! Do '''NOT''' use the usb port labelled with a lightning bolt, you will never get it to even boot.
 
* When booting from USB, append {{ic|1=libata.force=noncq}} to the kernel parameters to avoid problems with the SSD.
 
 
=== Internet connection ===
 
As the Intel 7260 WiFi card is only supported in kernel 3.11 or newer, you might have to use another method to connect to the internet during install.
 
 
Known working methods:
 
* USB [[Wikipedia:tethering|tethering]] with an Android device. Samsung i9300 @ 4.2.2 tested.
 
 
== Installation ==
 
=== Picking a bootloader ===
 
==== UEFI ====
 
===== [[Gummiboot]] =====
 
Works as expected.
 
===== [[GRUB]] =====
 
Some users are unable to run the install.
 
 
{{Note|Grub should install fine if UEFI boot mode is turned on in the BIOS.}}
 
 
==== Legacy ====
 
===== [[GRUB]] =====
 
Works as expected.
 
 
== Post-intallation ==
 
=== CPU ===
 
Issues fixing the frequency at 800MHz are yet to be solved.
 
Known working fix using the 3.11-rc4 kernel (and higher) can be found [http://elouisyoung.blogspot.se/2013/07/configuring-2013-sony-vaio-pro-13-with.html here].
 
 
=== Video ===
 
Works good with the {{pkg|xf86-video-intel}} driver. For instuctions on installing and configuring, see the [[Intel Graphics]] article.
 
 
=== Sound ===
 
Works out of the box. As the [[Installation Guide]] suggests, install {{pkg|alsa-utils}} and follow [[Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture#Unmuting_the_channels|this]] guide to get started.
 
 
=== WiFi ===
 
The Intel 7260 WiFi card is only supported in Linux kernel 3.11 or newer.
 
 
=== Touch screen ===
 
Tapping works out of the box. Multitouch gestures do not work.
 
 
=== Keyboard backlight ===
 
Works out of the box. Enables in low amblient light and a key press, turns off after about 20s.
 
Can be customized by modifying {{ic|kbd_backlight}} and {{ic|kbd_backlight_timeout}} found in:
 
/sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/
 
A simple shell script for toggling the backlight, bind to a keyboard shortcut for easy use:
 
#!/bin/sh
 
path="/sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/kbd_backlight"
 
if [ $(<$path) -eq 1 ]
 
then
 
newval=0
 
else
 
newval=1
 
fi
 
echo "$newval" > $path
 
Make sure that you can write to this file without root privileges:
 
# chmod 777 /sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/kbd_backlight
 
 
=== Monitor backlight control ===
 
Works out of the box with {{pkg|xorg-xbacklight}}. By default the backlight is only adjusted by 1% per button press. This can easily be fixed by binding those keys to a {{pkg|xorg-xbacklight}} command. DM:s like [[Xfce]] does take larger steps by default.
 
 
=== Trackpad ===
 
Works great with the {{pkg|xf86-input-synaptics}} driver. A good base config can be found [[Synaptics#Buttonless_touchpads_.28aka_ClickPads.29|here]].
 
 
=== Keyboard and buttons ===
 
Works very well out of the box.
 
 
=== Fan control ===
 
Works well out of the box. It stays quiet during normal load. Change profile by editing {{ic|thermal_control}} found in:
 
/sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/
 
Available profiles can be found in {{ic|thermal_profiles}} in the same directory.
 
 
=== Charging ===
 
Set the maximum charge to 50/80/100% by modifying {{ic|battery_charge_limiter}} found in:
 
/sys/devices/platform/sony-laptop/
 
 
=== USB ports ===
 
Some users are having issues with the usb port labeled with a lightning bolt not working for anything but charging. This is a known issue for many Sony laptops.
 
 
=== SD card slot ===
 
Works out of the box.
 
 
=== NFC ===
 
Not tested.
 
 
=== Bluetooth ===
 
Works out of the box.
 
 
=== Webcam ===
 
Works out of the box.
 
 
== Summary of known issues ==
 
* Out of the box no kernel version supports this CPU. You will be stuck at 800MHz unless you follow the instructions in the CPU section.
 
* Someusers are having trouble with the internal Mic showing as "Unavailable" to pulse and not working.
 
* Only one usb port fully working for some users.
