When you try to shut down the system, it freezes and won't power off. Wi-fi and
bluetooth leds are always on(though this particular model doen't have
bluetooth). Fn keys do not work. Graphics card is not recognised, no proper
drivers are loaded.
Asus have posted on their download page the source code for their free simple
OS - ExpressGate; it's linux-based and works perfectly on x50gl; I wonder if
some of thier code could be used to fix those issues.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openSuse 11.1 on Asus X50GL notebook
2. Boot to it
3. Check Fn keys functionality, wi-fi/bluetooth leds, graphic card; try to
power off
Actual Results:
OS has limited/no support of those features

Expected Results:
OS should work properly - bluetooth led should be off, wi-fi led should switch
on/off properly, Fn keys should work, graphics card should be recognised,
system should power off properly
