  • The multiple tables from #Hardware look like they can be squashed into the generic table since everything is listed as working. #Expansion Cards should be left as-is given the fact that more modules can be added over time.

This article covers the installation and configuration of Arch Linux on a Framework 16 Laptop.

For a general overview of laptop-related articles and recommendations, see Laptop.

Note: The AMD sections of the Framework 13 Page may serve helpful for troubleshooting while the Framework 16 page is being developed.


Framework is intended to be a configurable and upgradeable laptop. The lists below is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all the hardware sold with the framework, but rather a list of tested components.

Note: Ensure you have linux-firmware installed, as pointed out by Installation guide#Install essential packages before reporting hardware issues on the Arch bug tracker or Framework Community boards. It is an optional dependency of linux and does not automatically get installed as part of base. Without it, much of the hardware will be detected but may not be fully functional. You will see firmware loading issues in the journal.

WiFi performance on AMD edition

You will be limited to 802.11n (WiFi 4) and 2.4GHz bands if you do not configure the regulatory domain.

There have been reports of WiFi stability and throughput improvements when using iwd on the 13 inch AMD model, either directly or as the NetworkManager backend. It is unclear if these issues persist on the 16 inch model, which uses the exact same Wi-Fi card.
