CONFIG_ACPI_ASUS: ASUS/Medion Laptop Extras

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_ACPI_ASUS has multiple definitions:

ASUS/Medion Laptop Extras (DEPRECATED) found in drivers/platform/x86/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_ACPI_ASUS:

Help text

This driver provides support for extra features of ACPI-compatible ASUS laptops. As some of Medion laptops are made by ASUS, it may also support some Medion laptops (such as 9675 for example). It makes all the extra buttons generate standard ACPI events that go through /proc/acpi/events, and (on some models) adds support for changing the display brightness and output, switching the LCD backlight on and off, and most importantly, allows you to blink those fancy LEDs intended for reporting mail and wireless status.

Note: display switching code is currently considered EXPERIMENTAL, toying with these values may even lock your machine.

All settings are changed via /proc/acpi/asus directory entries. Owner and group for these entries can be set with asus_uid and asus_gid parameters.

More information and a userspace daemon for handling the extra buttons at http://acpi4asus.sf.net.

If you have an ACPI-compatible ASUS laptop, say Y or M here. This driver is still under development, so if your laptop is unsupported or something works not quite as expected, please use the mailing list available on the above page (acpi4asus-user@lists.sourceforge.net).

NOTE: This driver is deprecated and will probably be removed soon, use asus-laptop instead.
