Works out of the box. See CPU frequency scaling for some tweaks.
Works with the proprietary Nvidia driver in full display resolution.
TV-Out/DVI currently untested, but the graphics driver finds the interfaces, so they should be switchable with the nvidia-tools.
VGA-Out is working with nvidia-settings.
Console framebuffer is working in 1024x768 with the vga=0x317 kernel boot option. With the vesafb-tng patch the native display resolution should work, too.
Follow this guide: NVIDIA
No problems detected.
Works out of the box.
Follow the official documentation: ALSA
To enable wireless follow the official guide: Wireless network configuration
Please note that the Asus G1 needs the ipw3945 driver.
NetworkManager is also a cool option.
See Webcam setup.

To enable the pointer follow this guide: Touchpad Synaptics
Leds & ACPI upgrade
Note: With recent kernels, compiling acpi4asus is no longer necessary. Skip to editing rc.conf below.
To enable every led (the ones on the LCD too) the first thing needed is upgrading the acpi module with the one provided by acpi4asus.
It's really easy, follow these steps:
mkdir sources cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/acpi4asus login cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/acpi4asus co -P acpi4asus cd acpi4asus/driver make make install
Now the new driver is installed. To use it and prevent udev from using the old one, edit your /etc/rc.conf and:
- Add to "MOD_BLACKLIST": asus_acpi
- Add to "MODULES": asus_laptop
Right now you can reboot or execute:
modprobe -r asus_acpi modprobe asus_laptop
You'll find the leds in "/sys/class/leds/".
To enable a led write "1" in the "brightness" file in the right directory. To disable a led write "0" in the "brightness" file in the right directory.
echo 1 > /sys/class/leds/asus:gaming/brightness
Enjoy your leds!
There is a package in AUR named asusoled.
kernel < 2.6.23: It needs turning off usbhid (rmmod usbhid) or patching the kernel: asus-lcm.diff
kernel >= 2.6.23: works out of a box
There is also a separate kernel driver based on asusoled: Asus_OLED. It works without patching usbhid or removing asus_laptop. Just load it before the usbhid module gets loaded and it will work (< 2.6.23, in new kernels works out of a box). It contains a small Qt utility, which can be used as a drop-in replacement for asusoled, and has some additional features.
You may simply want to display a digital clock with the date in the asusoled area. To do this :
- install broken link: archived in aur-mirror] from the AUR. AUR[
- add 'asusoled-clock' in the daemons array of your rc.conf
There are also some interesting utilities available to control and utilize the OLED display over here: https://bitbucket.org/SysGhost/asus-oled-command-line-utility.git
