ATI Radeon Xpress 200M

Working with properitary drivers (ati-drivers) and radeon. 3d support not jet tested

Broadcom Corporation BCM4318

See the Broadcom 43xx article.

SB450 HDA Audio device

Tried it as described in the gentoo handbook/alsa-guide. Intel HDA sould be the right driver.

File: /etc/modprobe.d/alsa
alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss
alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss
alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss

options snd-hda-intel enable=1 index=0 single_cmd=1 model=3stack

alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-15 soundcore
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel

Afterwards run update-modules.

Doesn't work very well, jet. It overmodulates all the time even when setting pcm to 8:8 in alsamixer so that the rest of the sound is much to silent. Can't play sound with mpg123 -a /dev/dsp music.mp3 saying Cound not open NAS server dev/dsp


Follow the Touchpad guide and everything will work fine (including tapping, drag&drop, horizontal/vertical scrolling). Be sure to select auto-dev as protocol otherwise realtime configuration won't work. This is the configuration i'm currently using:
