For 64-bit install, update BIOS first to fix ACPI and wireless problems. If you use 32-bit there should not be problems.

What does not work

Hibernation (is still flaky). Suspend seems to work OK with kernel 2.6.35, xorg 1.9.

Audio Realtek ALC268 Working well. Recording from the internal microphone is flawed, however.

Remote control sensor Works: install LIRC, the driver is lirc_ene0100. I successfully command MPD and MPlayer with it.
