 +===== Notes =====
 +The NVidia GeForce Go7600 chip can function either with the '​nv'​ driver included with Xorg or the proprietary module from NVIDIA.You can view our [[Configuring a nVidia graphics chip for Linux|Configuring a nVidia graphics chip]] installation guide for further details.
 +
 +The ethernet port on the Asus A6Jm is supported by the r1000 driver. This is a proprietary module so is not included with most Linux distributions. You can fetch this driver from [[http://​www.realtek.com.tw/​downloads/​downloadsView.aspx?​Langid=1&​amp;​PNid=13&​amp;​PFid=5&​amp;​Level=5&​amp;​Conn=4&​amp;​DownTypeID=3&​amp;​GetDown=false#​2|here]]. When kernel version 2.6.19 is release it should have built in support for the ethernet port so no extra installation will be required.
 +===== Summary =====
 +The ethernet controller is the major issue with the Asus A6Jm, but this should be solved shortly. The other features of this laptop work fine.
