Review of Linux Compatibility

The Arctic MC001-N is a multimedia computer with integrated TV card. The Barebone PC was tested with a Linux kernel of version 3.13 and except for the integrated DVB-T tuner, which is not recognized by the Linux kernel, all other components are fully supported.

The Arctic MC001-N is equipped with a Intel Atom D525 1.8GHz

model name	: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU D525   @ 1.80GHz

which is passive cooled and has a speed of 3591.32 bogomips.

Graphics Card

The integrated graphics card is a AMD Radeon HD with HDMI support:

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Park [Mobility Radeon HD 5430] [1002:68e1]
	Subsystem: Elitegroup Computer Systems Device [1019:3125]
	Kernel driver in use: radeon

It is supported by the “radeon” linux driver:

(II) LoadModule: "radeon"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
(II) Module radeon: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
	compiled for 1.15.1, module version = 7.3.0
	Module class: X.Org Video Driver
	ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 15.0

Sound

The sound also bases on the ATI chipset:

02:00.1 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Cedar HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5400/6300 Series] [1002:aa68]
	Subsystem: Elitegroup Computer Systems Device [1019:aa68]
	Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

and is supported by the snd_hda_intel kernel module, which loads automatically:

input: HDA Intel Front Headphone as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input14
input: HDA Intel Line Out Side as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input13
input: HDA Intel Line Out CLFE as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input12
input: HDA Intel Line Out Surround as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input11
input: HDA Intel Line Out Front as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input10
input: HDA Intel Line as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input9
input: HDA Intel Rear Mic as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input8
input: HDA Intel Front Mic as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input7

and can be used with ALSA

 0 [Intel          ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                      HDA Intel at 0xfebf8000 irq 51
 1 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
                      HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfe9bc000 irq 53

TV (DVB-T)

The integrated DVB-T chipset bases on the Realtek RTL2832U chipset:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1b80:d393 Afatech DVB-T receiver [RTL2832U]

There is currently no driver for this chipset in the Linux kernel.

Ethernet

The onboard Gigabit Ethernet bases on a Realtek chipset:

04:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller [10ec:8168] (rev 06)
	Subsystem: Elitegroup Computer Systems Device [1019:3125]
	Kernel driver in use: r8169

and is fully supported by the r8169 kernel module, which loads automatically:

r8169 Gigabit Ethernet driver 2.3LK-NAPI loaded
r8169 0000:04:00.0: can't disable ASPM; OS doesn't have ASPM control
r8169 0000:04:00.0: irq 49 for MSI/MSI-X
r8169 0000:04:00.0 eth0: RTL8168evl/8111evl at 0xffffc90000358000, 00:11:22:33:44:55, XID 0c900800 IRQ 49
r8169 0000:04:00.0 eth0: jumbo features [frames: 9200 bytes, tx checksumming: ko]

WiFi

A Ralink chipset is used for the internal WiFi

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter

This chipset is automatically recognized and supported under Linux:

usb 1-4: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-pci
usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=148f, idProduct=3070
usb 1-4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3

Drives

The barebone version of this PC comes without memory and without a harddisk. It is only equipped
with a SN-208DB DVD-RW drive:

ata2.00: ATAPI: TSSTcorp CDDVDW SN-208DB, SB00, max UDMA/100
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 24x/24x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
