Laptops running ArchBang

What laptop; make, model, and hardware do you have running ArchBang? I'm hoping this thread will eventually be of some help to those thinking about running ArchBang on their laptop/netbook to make a decision as to whether to install AB or not.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

HP Probook 6465b
AMD A6-3410MX CPU with Radeon HD6520G graphics

Archbang 2011.11 booted into X at the native 1366x768 resolution (with the vesa driver) but sound only worked when I selected the right card (the HDMI output was the default - I've since toggled this so the real audio card is the default)

The opensource radeon driver also works, but TBH, I can't really see any improvement over vesa (but my requirements are very basic)

I haven't tested wifi but the card is detected as wlan0 so I have no reason to think it won't work

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Dell XPS 15z

Webcam and built-in microphone work with Skype, Google Voice, etc.
SD Card reader works, until the next reboot, if use use this command:

sudo sh -c "echo 1 > /sys/bus/pci/rescan"

The multimedia keys and such seem to all work okay.
Headphone jack works.
The wireless (iwlagn) and wired networking works without any hacking.

Trackpad works (vertical scrolling, no multituch) if you add:

options psmouse proto=imps

to /etc/modprobe.conf

Works like a charm, assuming you charmed the video drivers.
Follow the Nouveau guide on archwiki and you should be fine.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Old Compaq Presario C751NR.  Dual core pentium. 1 GB ram.  Integrated graphics.  Worked with default install.

@oliver, I appreciate you mentioning the laptop with the A6 processor.  I thought I saw that some linux distros had problems with the new fusion apus.  Keep us up to date if there are any issues.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

New(er) Nvidia-based Laptops:

I realize this is a thread for laptop's that work with Archbang, but
here is something to "watch" out for if your looking to buy a new(er) Laptop.
Try to avoid this so-called "Nvidia Optimus" Technology for this reason, for now, (atleast 'till / IF ? nvidia provides a proper Linux solution) :
http://www.aigarius.com/blog/2011/05/24 … imus-fail/

(I'm well aware of Bumblebee rev.-eng project, but it is far from ready for the big times yet, ...)
Laptops with nvidia "Optimus Technology" are like, of course the cheaper, 555M, 540M or 330M are some example chipsets that I found.

And, Laptops with a "real" nvidia (chipset), like 360M, 460M, 560M, 580M, 585M  are some good examples of NON-nvidia-optimus alternatives, that let you run nvidia, in Linux, the way it was meant to be run.
Choice is yours'.
btw: I don't condone, or support the above, neither am I against it,
I'm just trying to say, as we all know, if your next "new" Laptop is gonna be an nvidia-based Laptop,..., then do your homework thoroughly, before your spend your hard-earned $$$,
so that you'll be happy thoroughly, hardware-wise, in the long run.

Just a head's up.

Joe Linux.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Running on both a Dell Inspiron E1505 (no problems, had to manually install b43-firmware to get wireless to work; also installed laptop-mode-tools and added hot keys for xbacklight +30 and xbacklight -30), and, an Asus eee 1005HA (installed fine without any additional workarounds --- but also added laptop-mode-tools).  Really like this operating system --- came from Ubuntu.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Now running a HP 6510b with Intel Core2 Duo T7250 (2GHz).  2 GB ram.  Integrated graphics.  Intel wireless.  I grabbed the hard drive from the previously mentioned Presario (which monitor died, was using an external display).  Everything worked.  The only thing I needed to adjust was the screen resolution!  I bought this offlease for $270.  Pretty good deal.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

DELL Latitude C640 works fine.  PCLINUXOS, as nice as it is, couldn't handle the Antheros chip set on wireless.  ArchBang worked out of the box.  I installed ArchBang as something to do, not intending to keep.  Months later still on and is very stable, no crashes and the wireless stays connected.  It was a little bit of a challenge on suspend, but it seems to work now, just had to read the ARCH forums on the various permutations to try on settings.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Asus EEE PC 1215P Intel® Atom™ N570 dual core and 4 threads. The 1.66 GHz processor is actually an Intel 64 running as a 32 bit (it runs both). If the RAM is only up to 2GB then it runs as a 32-bit as in the Asus.

Secret to running Arch in this series is CPU scaling. The Arch kernel is set by default to performance and Asus needs to be set to ondemand to stop the kernel panics. I recommend adding cpufrequtils, acpid, cpufreqd, cpuspeed, jupiter and jupiter-support-eee packages .

 # packer -S cpufrequtils acpid cpufreqd cpuspeed jupiter jupiter-support-eee

Jupiter gives you an icon in the tray to change cpu performance and screen resolution.

Then add the driver and governors you want to MODULES in /etc/rc.conf

MODULES=(acpi-cpufreq cpufreq_ondemand cpufreq_powersave)

Then set the governor for the four processors:

# for i in 0 1 2 3; do cpufreq-set -c $i -g ondemand; done

The frequency needs to be set to max of 1.67GHz and minimum of 1.0GHz (1000 MHz) and governor set to ondemand in /etc/conf.d/cpufreq.

#configuration for cpufreq control

# valid governors:
#  ondemand, performance, powersave,
#  conservative, userspace
governor="ondemand"

# limit frequency range (optional)
# valid suffixes: Hz, kHz (default), MHz, GHz, THz
min_freq="1.00GHz"
max_freq="1.67GHz"

# use freq to set up the exact cpu frequency using it with userspace governor
#freq=

cpufreq needs to be added to the DAEMONS line in /etc/rc.conf to automagically start.

DAEMONS=(dbus networkmanager !network !dhcdbd syslog-ng @alsa @cpufreq)

Your CPU should run for the most part at 1000 MHz and stay under 50C. While this might not be optimum for gaming, you won't run into random kernel panics and Arch will run smoothly. You may also want to run Con's linux-atom-ck kernel instead of the vanilla Arch kernel.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

I propose to make a section called something like specific hardware solutions in the  WIKI and put this last post in it.


Getting your questions answered here at ArchBang Forums
Please! Always give hardware info, if there is a chance that 's relevant: #lspci -vnn

I plan to make this a "Wiki how to" by the weekend. Busy time of the year for me and the only time I have for the Wiki now is to get rid of spam as 'Santa' didn't provide any help sad

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

the only time I have for the Wiki now is to get rid of spam as 'Santa' didn't provide any help sad.

I can only recommend to let it go.
And do as I proposed: link to another wiki, that is guarded.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

I just setup an easy to use laptop for my fiancee. Its a dell b130. intel centrino, 512MB. everything works fine on it. its runing 3.1.8-1-arch. some things were a hassle to setup on it though and that doesnt include the wireless driver i posted about, thank you all very much once again for your help.


I started out as a bozo, but, now im a tester of sorts, I use arch and debian.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Moved post by Vrkalak

Just received my new ThinkPad 13" Ultra-Thin Laptop yesterday.

Had to open Windows-7 for a few minutes, to make a System Restore Disk for it and to shrink the partitions.

Put my 2 favorite OS-distros on it:  Crunchbang (Debian/Openbox) and Archbang (Arch/Fluxbox)

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Hi all,

I'm running ab on my Asus 1015px everything works out of the box. Only do keep in mind that the native resolution of the screen is 1024x600 and when you do not install ab using Xorg autodetect your screen resolution will be fixed at 800x600. Overall I'm very happy with my little netbook which I only use for school. I also upgraded the netbook a little with 2 GB ram and an OCZ agility 3. Its just awesome to see the reaction of other students with more expensive laptops running windows when they see the performance I get with my cheap netbook running ab.

Also a special thanks to ArchVortex for his post installation instructions which have helped me a lot regarding the pacman key issue. I will be trying his optimized kernel for the Asus netbook when I feel confident enough since I'm still a newbie.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Hi Archbangers;

I've got archbang running on an Acer AspireOne Netbook. It has the Dual Core Intell Atom 1.66ghz. processor, 2gb. of DDR3 Memory 320gb. HD.  Only problems I had was with Broadcom BCM 4313 wireless, after a little work and a lot of praying everything is running great.

I left archbang for a couple of months, actually right after Pacman 4. I just couldn't get it to update or install any software, I was using Fedora then moved to Sabayon. I'm back with Archbang and loving it, hope to never leave again.

Thanks.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

^ I am running AB on a Packard-Bell dot sc, virtually the same stuff under the hood, but different hood wink
All worked well, but I think I had to download and manually (pacman -U) install the firmware for the BCM4313.

Waiting for someone to get the drivers for the gma3600 up and running for linux, so I can take advantage of 2D and 3D acceleration and the cards video decoding capabilities.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Asus Eee-PC 1215N
Much like the 1215P (http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?pid=9153#p9153),
but in addition you need bumblebee Nvidia Optimus drivers (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?O=0&K=bumblebee).
I also had to uninstall "libvdpau", because viewing a flash site would turn on the Nvidia GPU, with very negative effects on system temperature and CPU.
Unfortunately mplayer depends on libvdpau but for now I'm content with using VLC instead.

hardinfo report

Worked out of the box, even broadcom wifi.
The only problem was with isight webcamera. Configured right, passed "mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:width=320:height=240:device=/dev/video0 -fps 30" test, but failed in skype, with a black screen. The solution/workaround was to create a script-launcher for skype:

#!/bin/sh
export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libv4l/v4l1compat.so
skype &

The workaround applies in a number of other webcameras with the same problem. Well configured but failed in skype.

Lightweight with no dependencies (all commands preinstalled with the system)

"HardInfo can gather information about your system's hardware and operating system, perform benchmarks, and generate printable reports either in HTML or in plain text formats." from here.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Dell Precision M90:

I got it "used" and cheap, but well worth it, considering the built-in Nvidia Quadro FX-2500M <- ( NO "nouveau" needed here, and NO "Nvidia-Optimess" ! )  wink

Note!: Originally, it had the crappy BCM4311-(Dell 1490) wi-fi mini-card, and "Broadcom"-wireless is garbage as most of you know.
Anyway, I replaced that with the below "Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205" wi-fi, and of course now everything just works OOB with any Linux/BSD distro, anytime, anywhere, ...

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

ASUS K75DE 17.3" : (I just couldn't resist the sale price):

CPU(APU)/GPU/RAM: AMD Fusion A10-4600M / AMD Radeon HD 7670M / 8Gigs
OS (pre-installed): Windows 8  (what a piece of shit that is).
BIOS: UEFI Secure Boot  (thankfully with a compatapility switch).
DUAL HDD-Bays

----
[EDIT]:
I built an archbang from scratch, using an "archlinux-2012.12.01-dual.iso" netinstall image.
Everything worked great OOB, (audio/video, wireless, webcam, ...), except for the "xf86-video-ati" Xorg driver. ?
However, Xorg's VESA (with nomodeset) works fine, but even better, the (latest) ATI-Catalyst driver  from [community] repo, worked real good now.
...and hopefully, AMD keeps this up, for Linux.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

I use a Thinkpad T400 with 1GB DDR3 RAM, Intel HD 4500. The SMPlayer video playback caused the GPU to hang, solution was to choose the x11 video driver instead of xv. Two-Finger-Scrolling works OOTB, I got adapted to the rest and wrote my own scripts around a few issues. Installed pm-suspend and oblogout and a few Arch tweaks, works very smooth now. Can't think about a serious hardware issue.

RealTek RTS5139 card reader not working although the module rts5139 is loaded, there's no response in dmesg when I insert a card.
Touchscreen works but like a mouse, no scrolling with 1-2 fingers.
Fn shortcuts work apart from keyboard backlight (but the adaptive backlighting works for it) , wifi switch and the Fans adjustment.
Adaptive backlight only works for the keyboard not the monitor, but I find this is a good thing since in windows it was really annoying.
Tested HDMI in Gnome and works fine, so does the webcam.
Two small issues are the fans seem to be running more and the dmesg log outputs this every few seconds:  xhci_queue_intr_tx: XX callbacks suppressed

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

im using IBM ThinkPad T61 nVidia NVS140 128MB , 4 GB ram, C2D T8300 CPU , Finger scaner and 60 GB SSD.
prety mutch everything works out of the box apart fingerprint scaner, port replicator and few fn related keys, but rest of it ok, actually runs very smoothly and friendly for my battery.
used this same T61 but motherboard was with intels integrated video  and T7500 cpu and its this same, and its identical to T61 with nVidia.


cars have ABS,EBD,ESP,SRS,LSD,20V ...etc etc. PC`s and laptops have C2D , i3, i5, i7 , GPU, CPU, RAM, HDD,LCD, UEFI, etc etc ... and me ?well ... i  have OCD

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist s230u

Intel® Core™ i5 - 3337U (2.7 GHz, 3MB L3, 1600 MHz FSB)
Intel® HD Graphics 4000
12.5" HD IPS display with Touch Sensor, 350 nit (1366 x 768)
24GB Micro SSD with ExpressCache & Diskeeper (also had a 500gb HDD that broke)
2 USB 3.0 (working)
1 RJ45 (I don't know what this is)
1 4-in-1 slot (works)
1 Mini-DisplayPort (have not tried it)
1 Mini-HDMI (have not tried it)
1 Dual-array microphone (combo jack) (works)
Gigabit Ethernet (works)
Bluetooth® 4.0 (haven't tried)
ThinkPad a/b/g/n Wireless BT Combo (2x2 ABGN & Bluetooth 4.0)  (works off live USB but not after install) Boardcomm wifi card says it's not supported. Then why does it work off a USB?!

Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 & Bluetooth 4.0 (2x2 BGN & Bluetooth 4.0) (I think this is the SIM card slot. Have not tried)

single touch screen works.

had a regular mouse plugged in upon install which worked. But Trackpoint and touchpad do not.

wifi worked off the live USB  but does not after install.  Had this problem with all the *buntus, D.S.L., TinyCore,  Arch Bang, Debian, and a few other Distros that i have tried.

This is what brought me to Arch Bang the wifi not working

Other than that it's a solid laptop that seems like it will last years.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

I did this

# modprobe wl

from here  https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ke … and_line_2

that worked but I have to do it on startup everytime

I must need to blacklist something, but I'm not sure how.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

The RJ45 port is where you plug your ethernet cable into.

You probably don't have to blacklist anything but need to add a file to /etc/modules.d.

See here:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Modprobe

Could you start a new thread in Hardware and Multimedia, you might get more help to resolve your issues.

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Asus Eee PC 4 G

Installation went smoothly; no major problems so far. Wifi, sound work out of the box. Great!
Had to do:

# pacman-key --init
# ....{lot of mouse movement, keyboard-typing etc. to gain entropy!}...
# pacman-key --populate archlinux

before I could

# pacman -Syu

But that's the normal procedure for Arch nowadays.

http://coderofworlds.com/before-buying- … riate-you/
...and more,
http://askubuntu.com/questions/428703/h … untu-13-10

Right now, I find it laughable that this brand new "Piece-Of-Junk" costs $250 more, than my Asus K75DE -(in Post #45) above ?!
...and no this is NOT about Intel versus AMD, on the contrary, this is about why we're not getting any "bang-for-your-buck" anymore.

So now I'm off to play around with Bumblee, or Primus, or whatever will work, and  if I can't get the "Nvidia GT 840M" to switch on permanently, then this overpriced "Piece Of Junk" is going back to the store !

There seems to be a very sad phenomenon going on in the hardware manufacturing end of the entire Computer Industry, these days. - As far as Laptops and Desktop's are concerned, we are all paying "more", for "less" good hardware.
It's not just the obvious things like "planned obsolesence", which is now an Engineering Science, with suicide-firmware chips, ..., it's much worse than that.

I think we may have hit the "ceiling" as far as the semconductor technology chips are concerned ... ? I mean, why else would they be trying to force us into buying these "Tabloids" (aka proprietary tablets/handhelds), by providing really junky Laptops and Desktops like these.
wink

[UPDATE]:  finally got this GT840M fired up and bumblebee/Primus works fine, but he wanted a more permanent solution, which, thanks to Arch's indespensible wiki, after removing bumblebee,...
My friend has "LinuxMint 17 Mate", with mdm, and so I  simply added the required lines into /etc/mdm/Init/Default, as per instructions:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NV … diaDefault
So now, I know it'll work in Arch too, smile  but still, what a needless pain all this Optifuss is.

ahh k, this is better now, and no need for him to worry about optirun, primusrun,..., but he's been warned, his battery will take a hit now !

...everything else works, Audio/Mic works, and of course wireless works too, OOTB, because naturally, it's an "Atheros" chipset

Everything worked smoothly OOTB, video, audio, ...,  EXCEPT for Wifi ???!!!  sad -I can't believe this.

I originally tested with Arch, but the crappy Realtek "RTL8723BE-wifi/bluetooth kept dropping connections.
Tried latest [testing], follwed steps as per arch wiki realtek, and it still dropped connections, albeit not as often.
(In LinuxMint-17, which is what my frend is gonna use, the rtl8723be will be completely useless to him.)
...so buyer beware, avoid rtl8723be-wifi if possible.

  Hey HP, hello !?, it's a Laptop-aka -Mobile PC, so you'd think you'd have a decent stable wifi-subsystem, instead of incorporating these junky "new" realtek chips.
So, I guess it's back to the Dell Inspiron 17-5748, for my friends' new laptop.

Also, I noticed that my older AMD A10-4600M, actually beats this new AMD-5745M in performance.

Like I surmised before, it seems we're paying for "more", but getting a lot "less" back for these  "newer" laptops, desktops,... sad

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Hi all! Been a while...
I'm on track most of the time, working at my customers' offices, so I needed something small and functional

So, recently I found and acquired a really, really, really old Toshiba NB100 netbook, but almost brand new. Hey! battery lasts 1:30 hour and it's 8 years old!

So, this is my inxi output:

$ inxi -ACDFGS

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

PC's/Laptops are beginning to be like cars, in the sense that, "...they sure don't build them like they used to anymore,..." ?!
And that, SADLY enough, is true, especially with all these suicide chips built-in.

Actually, the planned-obsolescence of the manufacturer's of Today are disgusting beyond belief. -just look at  Tablet's, phones,... today, ...
I'm almost surprised that they haven't been criminally-charged today, for what they are doing. -which is nothing less than lying, stealing,... ???

Re: Laptops running ArchBang

Toshiba Satellite T110-10Z netbook (http://www.toshiba.eu/discontinued-prod … -t110-10z/)

Intel Pentium SU2700 1.3GHz (single core, 64bit atom-like thingy)
3GB RAM

I have Archbang OpenRC installed. System itself is snappy and works well, usability bottleneck is web browser. Still, using Firefox I can open up to ten cards and watch some youtube. What I can't do, is open 30+ tabs like on my other PCs ; ) It's not an Archbang's issue, though, but Archbang's virtue, that I can do so much with such underpowered machine.
