Re: How to: Intel Core i3 drivers

That's what I've got on my laptop, I believe. What drivers are you referring to? Everything seems to be working out of the box over here.

Don't know exactly. The wireless, probably.

You might wait to see if everything works as you'd like, and then try to fix it if it doesn't. If it doesn't, then we can start from there.

EDIT: Do you mean to say your wireless isn't working?

I have two Core i3 computers, laptop & desktop, neither needed drivers, both running Waldorf out of the box.

Re: How to: Intel Core i3 drivers

Basically CrunchBang Waldorf is running out-of-the-box on my Intel i3 (mobile / Thinkpad x131e). However, in the debian testing kernel, the power-saving technology RC6 is not enabled by default. This is relevant for Sandy Bridge CPUs with graphics core (i.e. HD 3000). Reduces the energy consumption by about 3-6 watts (idle) and therefore reduces the workload for the fan (noise).

For me it was a noticeable boost.

The kernel parameter is: i915.i915_enable_rc6=1

Re: How to: Intel Core i3 drivers

What directory should I add the kernel parameter?

Re: How to: Intel Core i3 drivers

You have to edit your grub. Please make a backup: sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.backup
The setting is only useful if you have a graphic card on an Intel Sandy Bridge CPU. The parameter reduces the workload of the graphics card, if it is not needed.

Type:

sudo geany /etc/default/grub

Look for:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

And edit the line to:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i915.i915_enable_rc6=1"

After that, update your grub.cfg:

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Now, reboot your system.
