 ===== Notes ===== ===== Notes =====
-You can enter any specific notes with running ​Linux on the Asus M51Tr here.+There are two ways of installing ExpressGate (included on utility DVD) on this machine. One is via Windows (XP works). After install, you can safely delete all Windows folders, i.e. leave only ASUS.000, ASUS.SYS and splash.idx. Then you can proceed ​with Linux install. The other one is via WINE. More about this procedure can be found here http://​ubuntuforums.org/​showthread.php?​t=1049170
 ===== Summary ===== ===== Summary =====
-You can enter a summary ​of how well the Asus M51Tr works with Linux here.+With openSUSE 11.2, installation went smoothly. Except for the modem, all the components were recognized properly and worked out of the box. Battery management is working, brightness hotkeys are recognized and working, as well as the volume up/down and multimedia hotkeys. ExpressGate hotkey is also working (provided that ExpressGate is installed as discussed under NOTES section. Regarding graphics, ATI Catalyst™ 10.3 Proprietary ​Linux x86 Display Driver is better then default radeonhd driver. With this driver, you can stand-by and hibernate this machine properly.
