Asus Laptop Extras - How to activate in Kernel?

Hi,

Im using an ASUS W1N notebook and it works quite smooth with Arch. The only problem I have is the activation of my special keys like volume control.

I searched the net and found this project http://sourceforge.net/projects/acpi4asus/ which is already a part of the Linux Kernel.

As Im quite new to Linux and Arch especially, I dont know yet how to load modules to the kernel or how to find out which modules are already installed/loaded.

How can I find out how to load this module in Arch? Any help?

Thanks for any hint.

The module name is asus-acpi

To load it enter (as root)

modprobe asus-acpi

If you get no output the module was loaded.
To check use the lsmod command

lsmod | grep asus

If you get an output it is really loaded smile

To load it automatically at startup add asus-acpi to the
MODULES line in /etc/rc.conf

It is for the Asus M6, but it uses asus-acpi, too.

Thanks, I just found out by myself, but I thank you a lot. I was searching for days now but the small *click* didnt come...

Anyway, thanks for your help. Now it works.
