Config Notes
The 4846-565 requires a patch to update the Product file for the 4846 SATA drivers. It is available at: The 4846 also requires a different video driver than will be autodetected by NLPOS. In the /etc/X11/XF86Config file you should change the Driver option to "vesa" in order to use a driver available in NLPOS9. Use of DPMS (Off, Suspend, Standby) does not work on the 4846-565 with the "vesa" driver.
