(Introductory paragraph goes here. Describe the hardware. It is okay to mention the hardware platforms friendliness to open source drivers. Optionally, it is nice provide a nice summary of why or why not a user would want to buy this hardware for use with Linux.)

Installation

(Write the necessary steps to get Gentoo onto this system. Try to document any special step that each user will need to reproduce on their system. Includes getting special drivers or firmware from a manufacturer website, etc.)

Firmware

TODO

Kernel

Kernel configuration is fairly standard, and the typical options, as in the handbook, can be followed.

Touchpad

CONFIG_PINCTRL_ALDERLAKE, CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV,

KERNEL Enabling support for the touchpad
Device Drivers  --->
    Input device support --->
        <*>  Event interface

    [*] Pin controllers  --->
        Intel pinctrl drivers  --->
            [*] Intel Alder Lake pinctrl and GPIO driver

Emerge

TODO

root #emerge --ask category/package

Configuration

Xorg

Xorg can be configured using the optimus-manager utility, which results in the following configuration. This uses the proprietary nvidia drivers, and would require a different configuration to work under nouveau.

Troubleshooting

Only one SSD is available at a time

Kernel versions < 6.0.0 may present with the issue of only one of the two SSDs being usable. This can be rectified by upgrading to a newer kernel version.

Graphical applications on X freeze unless in fullscreen

Many hardware accelerated applications, such as Kitty, may freeze when not in full screen when using a default Xorg configuration. This can be solved through a custom configuration tool, such as optimus-manager. See a working X.org configuration for NVIDIA Optimus graphics using the proprietary drivers that resolves this issue here.
