    Asus-wmi linux driver for Asus G73 Notebook

    Last week i have purchased the Asus G73SW but i was pretty frustrated to know that the Linux driver are not supported for this model. When i have checked in the ACPI DSDT, i come to know that the G73SW only exposes the hotkeys along with some other ACPI-related machine specifics. For all of this, it uses WMI interface. So till there, there is no clear support for the laptop.

    Actually and I'm totally satisfied, but for video drivers, ultimately, to which you installed? The 10.8 I tried were totally unstable and I think I read that 10.6 did not pose a problem so I remain skeptical: they keep the factory or I start with 10.6 / 10.7?

    So I have the solution.

    • You have to flash BIOS and VBIOS. Then uninstall the old driver and then the new on it.
    • At least yesterday, everything went without problems, long time, but technically I can not confirm ....
    • So ne action for a driver uptdate, I do not quite normal.
