Re: Laptops which run Arch

I use Arch Current on a Toshiba P100, model PSPA3C-MA502C.  Everything works well, and there is a wiki from Gentoo  (http://www.gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_Tos … llite_P100) that helps a lot if you want to configure your sound card.  I use BIOS version 2.40, because version 3.30 makes my GPU fan's acting weird.

Samsung Q35 Ruby...working like a charm here!

Re: Laptops which run Arch

hp dv9000 - everything works with the exception of microphone which i have not yet tested. worth noting that works flawlessly: ricoh(?) card reader, built in webcam, wireless (ipw3945).

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Just got a new laptop recently, its a IBM/Lenovo 3000 N100 (apparently comparable to the IBM z60m)

Hardware:
Intel Dual-Core T2060, 2 GB DDR2 533 RAM, 120 GB Fujitsu SATA HDD, 15.4 inch widescreen (1280x800) using 915resolution, Wi-Fi using ipw3945, Wired Ethernet using the 8139too module, LG DVD+/-RW, Intel HDA Sound (ICH7), USB/Firewire support, Ricoh(?) 5-in-one card reader.

Suspend/Hibernate: works with 2.6.xx-suspend2 kernels, requires option acpi_sleep=s3_bios on grub kernel line

Basically, with a little tweaking here and there, it works great with Arch!

HP DV4275 (pavilion)

Everything works extra fine... from touchpad to suspend.
I just had to tweak the touchpad to have it work perfectly.
Wifi works great as well...

Re: Laptops which run Arch

I an using hp dv6000t. Everything works, even the multimedia keys, with the exception of two of them the dvd button and the button that looks like reload. I don't know what either of them were supposed to do anyways but aside from that, all else looks good.

these are borked on mine too, but i think it's because they are implemented on the hardware level. i just use them to turn my comp on instead of wearing out the power button since they are touch sensitive smile.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

toshiba 8100 -- brightness + fan through toshset
(toshset can can scale cpu to half (250MHz) but it takes a reboot to bring it back)
s2disk/ram don't work with defaults, some tweaking should do it though (like using hibernate-script)

acer aspire 5500z -- version with intel graphics,
everything important works; suspend, wireless ipw2200 (or is it ipw2300), cpufreq
only 4-way scroll button, lm-sensors and special media keys don't work

Wortmann Terra Mobile 6010

Besides Sound (HDA Intel ICH8), Wireless (4965AGN, needs iwlwifi) and the internal Cardreader everything works perfectly.

The first two problems should be smashed by new versions of alsa and iwlwifi in the near future.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

I run a toshiba laptop m40 (bought in Australia). I've got everything working with the exception of the memory card reader (I really haven't tried to get it working). Even the bluetooth works (required a little trick using the omnibook kernel modules). Out of all the distros/OSs I've run on this lappy; Arch runs the best by far.


... and for a time, it was good...

Had installed Arch to test it. Turned out that I kept it on since then. Loving it.


I need real, proper pen and paper for this.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Packard Bell Easynote BU45. Hotkeys, built-in webcam and fingerprint scanner don't work. Wifi works with ndiswrapper (at least so far, with WEP encryption and Kwifimanager).

Suspend and stand-by don't seem to work either (at least out of the box)

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Toshiba Satellite 2805-S603 works decently well. One thing that doesn't work for whatever reason is fnfxd. A parallel Gentoo installation on the same machine runs fnfxd just fine; not sure what's up with Arch. So Fn keys don't work. Two other things don't seem to work: once you put a graphical environment on it, either X by itself or a DE/WM of some kind, the screen won't turn off completely anymore. It's like this in Gentoo as well, so it's not unique to Arch. Long as you stay with just a console (boooring), screen blanking works.

Final thing is that you can't run HAL, at  least not with the toshiba_acpi module loaded. You'll instantly lose all temperature reporting via the battery, and you'll lose automatic fan control (it spins itself up and can't be turned off). It's weird, but any version of HAL clobbers ACPI. No more automatic device plug'n'play.

Other than these issues, no problems running Arch.
