Devices

Audio

There are two audio cards:

user $aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic_1 [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC287 Analog [ALC287 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

If the the default card should be the on-board audio, not the HDMI card, then create ~/.asoundrc as follows:

FILE ~/.asoundrc
defaults.pcm.!card Generic_1
defaults.pcm.!device 0
defaults.ctl.!card Generic_1

Alternatively put the same content in /etc/asound.conf for a system wide configuration.

Wireless network

This laptop has Realtek 8852AE WiFi card, for which there are no drivers yet in Linux 5.10.61, the current stable version at the time of writing this document. To make it work follow the instructions in this git repository to build a rtw89 module.

Note that this needs to be repeated whenever the kernel is rebuilt.

Display

The display brightness can be set using app-misc/brightnessctl, available on Project:GURU, on a hardware level. Alternatively, x11-apps/xrandr can be used to set the brightness software level.

Keyboard

The keyboard works out of the box. Function keys are not caught by the acpi deamon, but are silently passed to the desktop environment. Follow the instructions for your desktop environment if it needs tweaking, see the i3 configuration settings for an example. Note that if app-misc/brightnessctl is used, it needs to have its suid set when called from an normal non-root user session.

Touchpad

The Elan:ARM-M4 touchpad is finicky. It works most of the time using sys-kernel/gentoo-kernel without issues. It may be needed to reboot once or twice before it works.
