Everything working on the new asus..

Atlast I have everything working on the new asus laptop... was challenge... but it seems the new jaunty release of favorite distro ubuntu has everything working except for sound.... so the following things are working out of the box...

1. boot without any acpi=off in the boot option.
2. wireless
3. lan
4. graphics card not sure which one is in use though, there is no 3d acceleration so no compiz as of now... this is due to merging of the latest open source ati drivers using radeonhd rather than using fglrx.
5. usb driver..
6. web cam... skyp is showing the web cam... some mic problem there but i have never got mic to work on first go.. :-)
7. bluetooth... the internal blueotth works without any issue.

not working
1. sound not working but was able to get it resolved by following instructions here..
2. no compiz...
3. very loud fan... and temperature remains in upper 60s..

so if you are having trouble with your asus with intrepid, then get hold of jaunty ... it is still in beta but it is quite matured by now... and stable too...
