1. You may have noticed things look a little different around here - we've switched to a new platform (XenForo) and have some new forum styles and features. This how-to guide will help you find your way around. If you find anything that looks strange, post it in this thread.

    <a name="64bit">32-bit or 64-bit?</a><br />
    64-bit has compatible 32-bit libraries (see below) and allows you to use all 4GB of RAM.<br />
    <br />
    <a name="raid">RAID 0 or 1</a><br />
    Debian: At the boot screen for the installer, hit TAB to edit the boot parameters, type a space and dmraid=true and hit Enter/Return.<br />
    <br />
    Ubuntu: RAID 0/1 requires the <a href="http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate" target="_blank">Alternate Installer</a> (<a href="https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto#Method%201" target="_blank">more info</a>). At the boot screen for the alternate installer, hit F6 and then ESC to edit the boot parameters. Then type a space and dmraid=true and hit Enter/Return.<br />

    <br />
    <a name="swap">Swap space</a><br />
    I use 2GB for swap, but 1GB or 4GB would be fine. Swap is hardly ever needed when you have 4GB of RAM.<br />
    <br />
    <a name="32bit">32-bit compatibility</a><br />
    Installing the ia32-libs package will allow you to compile and run 32-bit applications.<br />

    <div style="font-style: italic;">The following procedure is for OpenSuse 11.1. It may/may not work for other Linux distributions.<br />
    <br />

    The <a href="http://forum.notebookreview.com/autolink.php?id=3034&amp;script=showthread&amp;forumid=1029" target="_blank" style="border-bottom: 1px dotted blue; text-decoration: none; font-weight: bold;" title="Click here to review the Asus G51">G51</a> has a key that the default Suse setup incorrectly interprets. The key is the backslash/pipe key. It interprets it as &quot;&lt;&quot; and &quot;&gt;&quot;. To get around this you need to edit the keyboard map file for the raw (console) mode and make a local &quot;fix&quot; file for Xorg mode. This procedure will last through all runlevels, which is a good thing. You must be root to do the console mode fix.<br />
    <br />
    Editing the keyboard map for console mode:<br />

    Look in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard. Search for KEYTABLE in the file. This will tell you the default keyboard map file it's using. Make a note of it. In my case it is us.map.gz. Now, cd /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty. gunzip us.map.gz. Using your favorite editor, edit the us.map file and search for 86. This is the keycode that we want to change. Change the line so that it reads like this:<br />
    <br />
    keycode 86 = backslash bar<br />
    <br />
    Save the file.<br />
    Recompress it: gzip us.map<br />
    Done with raw mode.<br />

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------<br />
    Fixing the key for Xorg mode:<br />
    su to yourself, not root. You must be in your own home directory for this fix, so type in cd <enter>.<br />
    <br />
    With your favorite editor create a file called .Xmodmap - It must have the dot before the filename and it must be spelled exactly as shown. Add the following line:<br />
    <br />

    keycode 94 = backslash bar<br />
    <br />
    Save the file.<br />
    <br />
    In order to make both changes effective, reboot. Your &quot;|/&quot; key should now function as normal.</enter></div>

    <a name="lights"><u>Controlling the lights</u></a><br />
    Unfortunately there is currently no way to control the lights with software (you can <a href="http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=383177" target="_blank">physically unplug them</a>). There is a way for the <a>ASUS</a> <a>G1</a> series to turn off their lights, see <a href="http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/platform/x86/asus-laptop.c;h=db657bbeec908e456facb8271fa8624fe0f0a515;hb=HEAD#l76" target="_blank">asus_laptop.c</a> in the kernel.</div>


    <a name="g51j"><u>G51J and G51Jx</u></a><br />
    Just got a G51J-A1 -- compiled my kernel in 13 mins and change (typing CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=8 makes me lulz). I can do 6 tracks in Ardour with around 4.5ms of latency using FFADO. So I can essentially confirm that this is probably one of the best machines you can get for doing pro audio on Linux.<br />
    <br />
    I'll update the guide sometime, but if you want to run Debian, there are some things to know:<br />
    <br />
    You will need a USB ethernet or wlan interface because lenny doesn't support the LAN or WLAN. Or you can download a full installer CD image and do it that way. You'll still need another computer and a USB stick or hard drive to get some stuff onto the machine.<br />
    <br />
    The wireless is Intel 1000 series which you can get the firmware for here (1000 series microcode):<br />
    <a target="_blank" href="http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Downloads">http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Downloads</a><br />
    <br />

    Extract and copy the .ucode file to /lib/firmware, reload the iwlagn module and the wireless should be all good.<br />
    <br />
    The wired ethernet is Atheros L1C based and uses the atl1c module.<br />
    <br />
    The quirk for the audio is the same as the G50. I did not have to use the pipe key fix, it works fine for me.<br />

    I will be the first one to say, AllurGroceries is a great person and will give great advice. I would have not been able to get my G50VT running as it is now without his great advice.

    Just a quick aside: I've been running Kubuntu/Ubuntu (I run both KDE4 and GNOME desktop environments) for a while now with Jaunty Jackelope (9.04) with nary a problem.

    One caveat: If you're using the current KDE 4.2.2, it helps on the wi-fi (wlan0 usually) *and* ethernet (eth0 usually) to have nm-applet running in the KDE system tray.

    To do this, open your favorite terminal and type: nm-applet &

    The command, followed by a space, and then the ampersand (&) lets the applet run in the background without having to keep the terminal open.

    After running -- nm-applet & --just CTRL-C to get back to the command prompt, and then type exit (or X out of the terminal window). This has worked wonders for my wi-fi ease-of-use, as when you left-click or right-click on the system tray applet indicator, you may configure many different networking parameters from this one little program.

    nm-applet is also the only truly dependable networking applet that is working nearly flawlessly at this time, as well. This information, of course, may be subject to change with newer releases. Always check the changelog and bug reports.

    Hope this is useful.

    Warm Regards,
    Firefishe

    Hi guys

    do you think that this procedure will also work on ASUS N51? I am going to buy one, does anybody have experience with that?
    I do not see any specific thread for this...

    thanks

    Not sure about the N51, but it's got similar hardware so it shouldn't be a problem.

    There are drivers to install - please see the Linlap Wiki or the howto for details. Everything works, though.

    There is no way to OC your CPU in Linux. :(

    There used to be a tool called lfsb that was sort of like SetFSB, but it hasn't been updated for a while so it doesn't support newer hardware.

    Edit: You can overclock the GPU though, I should have mentioned that... http://www.linuxhardware.org/nvclock/

    i flashed my gpu so no need for that :/

    well i guess if i only work with linux its not needed anyway. So my idea right now is: linux for working ,xp for gameing cause switching is np due to the really fast boot times. how ever ißm not sure if new games will still support xp.. the requirments for wolfenstein came out some days ago and it didnt show xp under the supported os´s. And if that is the case, so i need vista for gameing, i wont switch as vista takes years to boot.. i would keep vista for everything then :/

    Bump for an update - now sharing my kernel configs.

    Edit: Updated Linlap wiki entry with touchpad toggle button info. MonALISA team blog G50V howto guide seems to be down (403 forbidden).

    Edit 2: I can't get 2.6.31-rc8 to boot (gets stuck probing USB devices, maybe something to do with busted DSDT?). Anyone else try it?

    Edit 3: Updated for 2.6.31. Works fine.

    I got a G50Vt-A2 and I got the headphone jack working. I use it everyday actually. What line did you used and where did you placed it?

    I've used this:
    Code:
    Sound
    
    While sound works, the headphone jack does not work properly. No sound comes out of the headphones. Adding this line to the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base (it may be called alsa-base.conf on newer distros) may fix this problem:
    
    options snd-hda-intel model=g71v probe_mask=1
    
    
    Or:
    
    options snd-hda-intel model=asus-mode3
    
    
    After editing the file, try the following commands as root in order until one works (or just reboot):
    /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
    alsa force-reload
    update-modules
    
    Then unplug and replug the headphones or line-out cable and try playing audio.
    
    from this page: http://www.linlap.com/wiki/asus g50v

    in ubuntu 9.04 it didn't work. I ahven't found another fix for it. my laptop is g50vt X5

    Ive not posted before, but I have a G51V and the fix for headphones has worked perfectly. Perhaps there was an error? Not meant to slight your process. The first command listed had no effect but the next worked as advertised.

    Maybe you missed the sudo part -- that's the only difference between the wiki article and the comments (the article does say to run it as root, thus requiring sudo on Ubuntu).

    Edit: Updated for 2.6.31-rc7 and MonALISA howto seems to be back from that 403 error.

    Edit 2: Added anchors and table of contents, a couple of sentences about the lights.

    Edit 3: Updated for 2.6.31.

    I moved this guide to my website to make it easier for me to update and edit (I can't link to it directly due to forum rules, see my user page or sig).

    Thanks, it's kind of ironic that the crappy firewire chipset in my MBP is what made me jump back on the ASUS bandwagon... seeing as how um I dunno.. Apple invented firewire?!

    So I got an upgrade to quad core too. I still can't get over how fast this thing compiles the kernel. It might make up for all my lost time using an Atom CPU. :eek:
