Notes

Summary

Recommended dist for Asus F3Sg is Ubuntu 8.4.1 or OpenSuse 11.0 . Debian 4.0r5 Etch is not recommended , I have many problem with distro (not suported Ethernet, WIFI, graphic card[…] ) You will need at least kernel 2.6.22 for this laptop. Older kernels will have issues with the wired and wireless network.

Audio Solution (OpenSuse 11)

#cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo
