Introduction

This article should help you get some info about the ASUS X51RL. For writing this article, I'm using a Asus X51Rl-AP070D. I got the gentoo system running very easy (I'm using gentoo for more than 3 years now), but there are still some issues I haven't been able to figure out - this is my first laptop ... and I'm working on it since 3 days now...

This article isn't finished yet, but I'm going to get it as detailed as it should be. Stay tuned!

DVD

DVD works out of the box. For being able to play Video-DVDs you will need to set the region on your drive. First, you will need to install the app-misc/regionset package:

$ emerge -a regionset

Next, actually set the region on your drive: Run

$ regionset /dev/dvd1

and set the region code (see [1]) according to your needs. For more info see the regionset homepage[2].

Bluetooth??

Looks like this notebook has bluetooth built in. But how to activate it? If anyboy knows, replace this part by appropriate information, please!
