Launchpad hybrid grpahics will show a substantial amount of users with varying distros with the same issues
on Asus and other optimus or hybrid graphics enabled laptops .

Please check the Ubuntu forum as their is a fix by enabling ide compatibility in the bios instead
of UHCI ,this works for the UL80 laptop after a reboot .

As per below ,this may work on the K52 i have heard .

this is how you get g210m to work on ubuntu 9.10 / 10.04.

1. download and install nvidia drivers. (i have only tested the ones in the repos)

2. make sure you got an Xorg.conf that is correct. ( if not, run nvidia-xconfig )

3. reboot into bios (press delete while booting)

4. change the SATA option in the bios from enhanced to compatibility. ( yea, this makes sense? NOT! )

5. boot into linux and smile!

Anyone more then me who want to hit the people who wrote the bios?
running the latest bios. ends with 10.

The links which i couldnt post before .

If the slackware guys find a kernel module that will address this device in dmesg it would be great .

as this device is the mux /controller for the nvidia processor,which responds to
ACPI calls.

See dmesg ;

pci 0000:00:1f.6: found [8086:3b32] class 001180 header type 00
pci 0000:00:1f.6: reg 10: [mem 0xeb004000-0xeb004fff 64bit]
pci 0000:00:1f.6: calling quirk_resource_alignment+0x0/0x1cc
pci 0000:00:1f.6: calling pci_fixup_transparent_bridge+0x0/0x2f
pci 0000:00:1f.6: __pm_runtime_resume()!
pci 0000:00:1f.6: __pm_runtime_resume() returns -11!
pci_bus 0000:00: fixups for bus
pci 0000:00:01.0: scanning [bus 01-01] behind bridge, pass 0
pci_bus 0000:01: scanning bus
pci 0000:01:00.0: found [10de:0a35] class 000300 header type 00

# - 10de:0a35 is the nvidia adapter .

Please post to hybrid graphics launchpad if anyone has any module success with this ,and some parameters.
