Configuration


Installing Arch linux on the HP DV6910TX

This is a record of my attempt to put Arch (2008.06 Core Dump) on the HP DV6910TX. Here is my system configuration Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 @ 2.00GHzRam : 3GBNvidia GeForce 8400M GS with 256Mb dedicated memory320Gb harddiskPartitioning Here was my original partitioning scheme: C: 308GbD: (Recovery) ~10Gb Make sure you create your HP Recovery Discs first! Since the arch install CD doesn't have ntfsprogs ( it has the packages, but not as part of the setup boot ), I booted from dreamlinux (you can use any liveCD) and used ntfsresize to shrink the C: (/dev/sda1) to 35Gb.
