Arch Linux is currently running successfully on this laptop. This is the version with a Celeron M processor, and originally with 256MB RAM and no wireless. I have since upgraded to 1GB RAM and the Intel 3945 Wireless which is the standard card for other nx6310s which come with it.

Modules

  • Ethernet: b44
  • Wireless: ipw3945
  • Audio: snd-intel
  • Video: i810

wireless

To enable the Intel 3945 Wireless card I had to install the ipw3945 package. I then added ipw3945 to the MODULES section of rc.conf and ipw3945d to the DAEMONS section before network. I use NetworkManager to handle the mutiple wireless networks I need to connect to and there were issues with no wireless devices showing up in KNetworkManager. There were two different causes of this:

  • My user was not part of the users group
  • You need to turn the wireless card on by pressing the button next to the power button - this is not needed everytime I boot up so I'm not sure what the pattern is

Worked out of the box
