made some edits, and allowed me to delete the notice to chakra micro (which seems to be gone ?!)
I have an HP 210-1170nr which works ALMOST perfectly without tweaks.First, I'd like to say this is one of 3 distros--of those I have tried--- (OpenSuse and PClinuxOS being the other 2) which ran my wireless automatically. Even Ubuntu requires you to install something to make it work (though admittedly easy to do). So thumbs up there.
However, this HP has a clickpad, which is a touchpad with no physical buttons. Chakra doesn't acknowledge right clicking on it. This is actually an issue for all linux, though Debian distros have a patch that fixes it acceptably. For arch and everything else, I have to edit 10-synaptics.conf for it to work. This gives me a tap right click.

@takemori: could you please share your 10-synaptics.conf? I have the same netbook and I've been messing a bit with that file but I don'tget the perfect config.
Well, I tried another solution yesterday if you want to use it instead. Go to a root terminal and type:
echo options psmouse proto=exps > /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe
This solution gave my mouse much more functionality because it now has a physical right click instead of the tap right click I had by editting my 10-synaptics file.
If you prefer the 10-synaptics method, This is what mine ended up as after editing it myself.
Section "InputClass" Identifier "touchpad catchall" Driver "synaptics" MatchIsTouchpad "on" Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "TapButton2" "2" Option "TapButton3" "3" Option "RBCornerButton" "3" Option "RTCornerButton" "2" EndSection
I got another config some time ago from Ubuntu forums that works quite well for me. There's 2 finger scrolling and left/right tab click (no phisical click though):
Section "InputClass" Identifier "touchpad catchall" MatchProduct "SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" MatchIsTouchpad "on" Driver "synaptics" Option "JumpyCursorThreshold" "200" Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinZ" "29" Option "EmulateTwoFingerMinW" "5" Option "TapButton2" "3" Option "PalmDetect" "on" Option "VertTwoFingerScroll" "1" Option "HorizTwoFingerScroll" "1" EndSection
I've put the code in a 11-touchpad.conf file and I left the 10-synaptics.conf file as it was. It's not perfect, but highly usable.
Maybe you want to give it a try.
No kidding? But yours doesn't have the right click info. Should I keep my and then add your 11-touchpad.conf and it will work fine? If so, i'm glad that my touchpad has gained some more features
MSI Wind U100 and works like a charm. since the latest wlan updates, wlan n (rt2860 chip) also works ootb with rt2800pci. (before that i had to install the ralink drivers from their homepage)

HP Pavilion dm1-2150 works as well, but not without some minor issues:
* Trackpad is Alps, and is found as a generic mouse. Thus I'm not able to use any scrolling capabilities on the pad.
* Mic does not work with either Alsa nor PulseAudio.
However, webcam and anything else works. Desktop Effects eats a bit more cpu than what I would prefer (20% with blur, 10-12% without), but it's ok.

I had a HP mini 5103. With Aida i686.
Works out of the box
Wifi, Bluetooth, Webcam, SD-Card, Thouch pad with Multi-Touch gestures
Fn-keys: brightness,loudness,wlan on/off, standby, numLK
The fans need some work, too noisy.
I dont know about Microphone.
if anyone has a laptop which runs cool with free drivers and have hardware acceleration for videos they need to report it here
Just installed this on my wife's HP Mini 110 Studio Tord Boontje and everything worked out of the box to perfection. The only thing that needed to be done "manually" was give networkmanager the password to our wifi connection.
My wife is in love with what feels like a brand new netbook. Thanks for the hard work and for providing such a great out of the box experience!
First I would like to say "Well done" and thank you for a great distro! I have tried KDE on this Acer Aspire One
150 with not so good results many times but with Chakra it is running very,very well. Fast and responsive, no problems at all. Keep up the good work, it is great to finally run the "Cadillac of desktops" along with an "Archtype" base. Outstanding!! Will do my best to promote this to other Acer users. Thanx.
Running on a acer aspire 5530 ATI radeon hd3200 4 gig mem. Everything works out of the box.
I just installed Chakra on my Asus X101, and here is my short report:
Didn't figure out initially that I could boot from USB key by holding "esc" at start-up. That has nothing to do with Chakra, but nice to know for users of this machine.
Installation was smooth. I decided to mount /home on my SD card as internal hdd only has 8 GB. Bundles are great space savers here, currently only using 2.2 GB on my / mount
Problem though, when I started the machine the SD card isn't automounted, so I get some errors when it is trying to log in. Solved that by adding "mount /home" at the bottom of rc.conf. Would be nice if this could be solved for other users somehow.
Wifi card isn't recognized, in rc.conf it states "interface=". It isn't "found" by ifconfig, but you can find wlan0 if you write iwconfig in terminal. Not sure who to blame. Changed to "interface=wlan0" in rc.conf and all works just fine.
I like very much the "Search and Launch" activity on small screens, it makes all the sense in the world. I added the system tray at the bottom and removed the panel. I'm very pleased!
What wifi card does this system use? Did you set the initial ramfs on the last page of the installer (bootloader/bundle page) to add your sd card?
Eothred: Thank you for that advice on the sd card. I tried that once and ran into the same problem. However, I didn't know how to fix it and just reinstalled it all to the hdd.
I installed Crakra Archimedes in my ney notebook HP Pavilion g4-1215dx, and I have some issues:
- The sound is not working all the times. I can't change the volume, can't play music in clementine or youtube, but system sounds is working.
- Flash videos are laggy. Impossible to watch.
- When I turn on the notebook that was in the wibernate mode the screen doesn't turn on. (but I hear the login sound)

My good old Asus EEE Pc 900 (1 GB ram, 4+16 GB SSD, Celeron M 900 mhz) is also supported out of the box in Archimedes release. Literally everything is fine here. I am suprised that even suspend and atheros wifi works like a charm, and the whole experience is snappier than Ubuntu 10+ series. (with Semantic desktop enabled, and I'm serious). For the first time, I am really both enjoying KDE on my netbook and being productive (I use it a lot).
Kudos to all Chakra developers and community! You've done an amazing job, and I hope Chakra will get the attention it deserves.
Seems sound is set to your microphone as default device, change the master to your actual sound card, see if that fixes the issue. Also check if all sound channels are up in alsamixer, some might be set too low, or even muted.
What video driver did you choose during the install? Free or non-free?
Here is my config (to all audio devices)
and alsamixer is like this:
And I don't remember any video driver option in my install... Should I install a non-free driver?
@abveritas Sorry to come back to you so late, I forgot this thread.
It is using some Atheros AR9285 (is that sufficiently detailed model name?) I used lspci to obtain that. Let me know if you need more info on this (I'll subscribe to the topic ). The computer came preinstalled with MeeGo, so it should have components fairly well adapted for Linux.
Did you set the initial ramfs on the last page of the installer (bootloader/bundle page) to add your sd card?
I guess not, as I have difficulties understanding what ramfs is. I am not at all an expert, but figured I'd try to get this working. I accept the fact that this must be done in some expert option for now (and perhaps always). If you would manage to fix it easily/automatic during installation by e.g. noticing that I formatted the card and added it to fstab, Chakra would rock just a little bit more..
@takemori There are probably more correct ways to do it, this ramfs thing is probably the one. I think that in order not to execute the command many times I moved the mount command to /etc/rc.local instead. I don't have the netbook here right now so I cannot confirm but I am 95% sure I did so.

The question is: This Netbook comes (like most netbooks) with many disk partitions (Recovery, etc.) If a erase all the partitions and do new ones (/, /home & /swap) to install Linux in this machine, is there a risk to mess up the netbook? can be done? thanks for your help!
Last edited by atari130xe (2012-05-17 20:41:31)
Anytime you erase all on a HDD, there always is a slight risk. If you are really worried about that, you might want to try to shrink the existing partitions and dual boot. But all in all, the risk is not great, all should be well supported in Chakra and using live-mode for a bit, will tell you a lot.
