Notes

The ATI Radeon HD2400 in the Asus A8Sr is not currently supported by the Xorg 'fglrx' driver. You will need to install the ATI proprietary module for the HD2400 to work.

On many Linux distributions sound doesn't work unless you compile and install the latest 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.
