 +On many Linux distributions sound doesn'​t work unless you compile and install the latest [[http://​|ALSA]] drivers. At least version 1.0.15rc3 is needed. Some distributions,​ like Ubuntu 7.10, doesn'​t require this.
 +===== Summary =====
 +A little bit of configuration knowledge is currently required for the Asus A8Sr to function well under Linux. However newer distributions should fully support this laptop as standard.
