Works ot of the box.

Follow this SpeedStep guide to enable speedstepping


Works with the propritary 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 working with nvidia-settings.

Console Framebuffer is working in 1024x768 with the vga=0x317 kernel boot option. With the vesafb-tng the native display resolution should work, too.


Follow this guide: How_to_install_NVIDIA_driver

No problems detected


Works ot of the box.

Follow the official documentation to configure: Alsa


To enable wireless follow the official guide: Wireless_Setup

Please note the Asus G1 needs the ipw3945 driver

NetworkManager is also a cool option




Works out of the box? I doesn't own any bluetooth device, but the controller is detected and condifgured


To enable the pointer follow this guide: Touchpad_Synaptics

A really cool utility is gsynaptics (is in community repo).



OLED Display

Right now there is no support for this device (it is a propriertary device owned by Asus and there is no support at all).

The only thing needed is to force the use of USB 1.1 protocol as seemes that this device isn't 2.0 compatible and every second there will a reset of the device with 2.0 driver.
