I currently rarely use my chromebook or keep up to date with upstream/xorg changes and haven't maintained this package in a long time so I just hope any new changes work."

Re: Acer C720/C720P Chromebook

I cannot boot x86_64 in archlinux-2017.02.01-dual.iso on my c720 chromebook. It's rebooting after "Probing EDD... ok". SeaBIOS boot enabled by default, but I can to boot i686 only.
What I forget to do?
UPDATE: gentoo minimal install + archlinux bootstrap. Nice to work with.

You should use libinput. synaptics is no longer updated.

Hey guys, I'm occasionally getting a random hard system freeze nowadays on my c720. Anyone else notice this?

No problems here. Currently running kernel 4.10.8-1-ARCH (haven't rebooted in a while) on a 2GB 2955U variant. Original SSD and all. Using a Cypress touchpad if that matters.

Have you tried looking at journalctl? Might also be a good idea to check the SSD (smartctl from smartmontools package) and the memory (memtest86).

Are you using mem=1920M as a kernel boot parameter? I had occasional unresponsiveness before adding it (to /etc/default/grub in my case).

Re: Acer C720/C720P Chromebook

Thanks, I added mem=1920M

I had journald turned off cause I wan't sure it can log errors from a hard freeze. Anyway we'll see if anything shows up.

No errors from smartctl.

Re: Acer C720/C720P Chromebook

Hi there,
I'm having some trouble with the audio on my acer c720p with Arch Linux and Gnome 3.

Step to reproduce :
1) Plug HDMI then select the HDMI audio output in the settings panel (this is not automatic for me)
2) Unplug the HDMI cable
At this step, I can hear the bip sound when I increase or decrease the volume but nothing comes out from Chrome or VLC.
However the speakers output is selected as intended in the setting panel.

The only workaround to fix this is to plug the HDMI cable, and select speaker before unplugging the HDMI otherwise I'm stuck...

Someone have ever experienced this ?

Re: Acer C720/C720P Chromebook

@melkir,
yes, happened to me. I could workaround it by restarting pulseaudio as well. But I guess this is a upstream GNOME issue, maybe you should try reporting it there?

Not sure if anyone still following this thread, but I've recently found out about iuvolt. It allows undervolting Haswell+ cpus. The improvement is small, but measurable.

Re: Acer C720/C720P Chromebook

Well, it's 2018 and I'm still using the same awesome little Acer C720 Chromebook (with a new battery).  I noticed that there was a xkeyboard-config added for the chromebook keyboard as of 2.16-1 that I was previously mapping with xbindkeys.  When I activate the xkeyboard-config chromebook definition, oddly enough, my right arrow and down arrow keys stop working.  Has anyone else bumped into this issue?  Any ideas?

@vilefridge: not sure, works fine on my machine. Maybe you have something in your config conflicting with the new xkeyboard configs?

Yes, I encountered some problems since 4.9.9-2-ARCH. A lot of CPU power is wasted on hardware interrupts which sometimes caused my system to freeze (see https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=199329). I suggest you try the LTS kernel.

After a recent system update, one of these package upgrades seems to have fixed my problem:

[2018-06-10 01:58] [ALPM] upgraded xf86-input-evdev (2.10.5-1 -> 2.10.6-1)
[2018-06-10 01:58] [ALPM] upgraded xkeyboard-config (2.23.1-3 -> 2.24-1)
[2018-06-10 01:58] [ALPM] upgraded xorg-xkbcomp (1.4.1-1 -> 1.4.2-1)
[2018-06-10 01:58] [ALPM] upgraded xorg-server-common (1.20.0-5 -> 1.20.0-6)
[2018-06-10 01:58] [ALPM] upgraded xorg-server (1.20.0-5 -> 1.20.0-6)
