=Introduction=
+
The is a nice laptop, or rather a really small and light desktop replacement.
+
 
+
It is build upon the Intel NAPA platform with i945PM Chipset, Core Duo CPU and ipw3945 wireless.
+
 
+
Remember to update the BIOS on ftp.zepto.dk/Firmware/Bios/6214W
+
 
+
==What does work?==
+
3D Acceleration using the latest nvidia driver
+
 
+
Wireless using ipw3945
+
 
+
Wired network using r1000 (included in arch stock kernel)
+
 
+
Suspend to swap. though it was really slow to suspend.
+
 
+
20/2-07:Texas Instrument card reader works, some drivers are loaded but to make the card reader working just add '''tifm_sd''' in the module section from '''rc.conf'''
+
 
+
20/2-07:TV output is fine with nvidia driver and an appropriate xorg.conf, either dual screen or twinview mode.
+
 
+
These worked for me nearly ootb
+
Frequency-Scaling with acpi-cpufreq
+
Tv-Out
+
Bluetooth
+
 
+
==Not tested==
+
Texas Intrument card reader, there's currently a developement running to make it work [http://developer.berlios.de/projects/tifmxx/ here] and [http://openfacts.berlios.de/index-en.phtml?title=Pcixx21_flash_media_module here]
+
 
+
=Installation=
+
Installation is straigt forward. You might have to select IDE-Legacy in the first Grub menu, otherwise you might get a kernel panic. Drivers for the wired and wireless network cards are included.
+
 
+
=Configurations=
+
 
+
==Kernel boot options==
+
 
+
Boot the kernel with <code>noapic</code> because the BIOS is a little buggy. This prevents random freezes when watching DVD's, gaming etc.
+
 
+
==rc.conf==
+
 
+
My MODULES looks like this:
+
 
+
<code>MODULES=(!ata_piix ahci !hw_random r1000 ipw3945)</code>
+
 
+
This makes sure eth1 is wired network and eth2 is wireless. The hw_random module seems to fail on this laptop so I blacklist it.
+
 
+
==Graphic Card and Xorg==
+
This laptop has a GeForce Go 7600 graphic card and works only with the proprietary nvidia driver (or vesa). Native resolution is only possible with the nvidia driver.
+
 
+
The monitor runs at 1280x768 60Hz, so remember to add "1280x768" to Modes
+
 
+
==Wireless==
+
You have to use ipw3945 in order to make your wifi connection work.
+
 
+
pacman -Sy ipw3945
+
 
+
will install the necessary packages (for the stock kernel that is)
+
 
+
Then add <code>ipw3945d</code> to DAEMONS in rc.conf. See [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_Setup#Setup_and_Boot wireless setup] for additional information on wireless networking
+
 
+
==Sound==
+
The sound will work out of the box, make sure you have:
+
pacman -Sy alsa-lib alsa-utils
+
packages installed, and add yourself to audio group.
+
 
+
As of kernel 2.6.26 you might not be able to adjust the PCM volume, as there is no slider.
+
You can workaround this with setting the following in your /etc/modprobe.d/sound
+
 
+
options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo enable=1 index=0
+
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
+
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
+
 
+
To get volume hotkeys to work create ~/.Xmodmap with:
+
 
+
keycode 160 = XF86AudioMute
+
keycode 174 = XF86AudioLowerVolume
+
keycode 176 = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
+
 
+
(If you use openbox do not forget to map the XF86xxxxxx keys in rc.xml)
