 +==== Installing openSUSE 11.3 x86-64 on Acer Aspire 1551-4650 (AS1551-4650-US):​ ====
  
 I first tried booting from USB flash drive with openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso flashed as per instructions on [[http://​en.opensuse.org/​SDB:​Live_USB_stick | openSUSE web site]]. ​ The live USB will not load unless acpi=off is passed to the kernel. Installation from the Live CD hangs when trying to configure the bootloader for reasons that are not necessarily machine specific. I first tried booting from USB flash drive with openSUSE-11.3-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64.iso flashed as per instructions on [[http://​en.opensuse.org/​SDB:​Live_USB_stick | openSUSE web site]]. ​ The live USB will not load unless acpi=off is passed to the kernel.

 Reboot your system, this time **WITHOUT** the acpi=off kernel option. Reboot your system, this time **WITHOUT** the acpi=off kernel option.

 +Another option is to add the repository for ATI drivers:
 +
 +zypper ar -f -n ATI http://​www2.ati.com/​suse/​11.3/​
 +
 +Then install the following package:
 +zypper in x11-video-fglrxG02
 +
 +IMPORTANT: In the version I was using this package installed kernel-default,​ but the installation above was done with kernel-desktop. You may have to manually install the module corresponding to kernel-desktop. ​
 +zypper in ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop
 +If you decide to switch to kernel-default,​ make sure that the appropriate broadcom package broadcom-wl-kmp-default is also installed.
 +zypper in broadcom-wl-kmp-default
 +
 +NOTE: When upgrading the ATI driver I encountered various issues. One command that is very useful is
 +aticonfig --uninstall[=dryrun]
 +
 +The flag dryrun is optional, it tests the command without running it and discovers potential problems. ​

- --- //Mario J. Borgnia (mborgnia_at_google_dot_com) Monday 25 of October, 2010 [22:​27:​15]//​+== Update on sleep/​hibernate/​resume:​ == 
 +After reading the comment below and doing some exploration,​ here is the progress: 
 + 
 +Create a file named: 
 +''/​etc/​pm/​config.d/​acer''​ 
 + 
 +Containing the following two lines: 
 +''​S2RAM_OPTS="​-f -a 3"''​ 
 +''​SUSPEND_MODULES=“wl atl1e”''​ 
 + 
 +Also, modify grub to include the noapic kernel option. Here are two ways to do it: 
 +Edit the file /​boot/​grub/​menu.lst to add "​noapic"​ to the line corresponding to the default kernel: 
 +Here is how it looks in my system (yours maybe different depending on partitioning,​ kernel version, etc): 
 +''​kernel /​vmlinuz-2.6.34.7-0.5-desktop root=/​dev/​sda2 resume=/​dev/​sda4 splash=silent quiet showopts vga=0x317 noapic''​ 
 + 
 +Alternatively,​ run Yast->​System->​Boot Loader and edit the default line to add "​noapic"​ in the Optional Kernel Command Line Parameter box. 
 + 
 +**Note:** After a suspend/​resume cycle, knetworkmanager will not be active, the only workaround that I found so far was to ''​kill knetworkmanager''​ from console and initiate another instance of it, also you will need to press Fn-F3  to turn wireless on and active wireless in the new instance of knetworkmanager (right click). After a few seconds, network will be up again. Connecting to a wired network will reactivate knetworkmanager without requiring a kill, but this is not always an option.

 + --- //Mario J. Borgnia (mborgnia_at_gmail_dot_com) Monday 25 of October, 2010 [22:​27:​15]//​ 
 + 
 +A user reported at http://​permalink.gmane.org/​gmane.linux.kernel.suspend.devel/​8559 that they were able to get suspend to work using s2ram from uswsusp. Debian Squeeze currently uses pm-utils, so I have adapted that user's settings to Debian Squeeze by performing the following:​ 
 + 
 +1) Edit /​etc/​default/​grub. Add the option noapic to the variable GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX:​ 
 +GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="​noapic"​ 
 + 
 +2) Add an option file for pm-utils in the directory /​etc/​pm/​config.d. This directory should be empty at initial install time, and the file may be named anything. I named mine "​acer-aspire-1551"​. The contents should include the following:​ 
 + 
 +ADD_PARAMETERS="​--quirk-s3-mode --quirk-vbemode-restore"​ 
 +# The following may not be needed, but isn't harmful. This removes both networking drivers from the kernel 
 +SUSPEND_MODULES="​wl atl1e"​ 
 + 
 +3) Compiz is incompatible with resumption from suspend-to-ram. I found that running 
 +$ metacity --replace & 
 +prior to suspending, and 
 +$ compiz --replace & 
 +afterward worked just fine. Maybe there is a way to automate this, too? 
 + 
 +4) The wireless module is off, by hardware switch after the restore from suspend. You may need to Fn+F3 to restore it, or maybe there is a software solution for that button. 
 + 
 +==== Build-in mic works well with some distros ==== 
 + 
 +The build-in mic works well in Fedora 14, Fedora 15, Fuduntu 14.10, doesn'​t work in Ubuntu 10.10, Ubuntu 11.04, openSUSE 11.4.
  
 +This issue made me open a [[https://​bugs.launchpad.net/​ubuntu/​+source/​pulseaudio/​+bug/​682065|bug at launchpad]].
