On a Asus eeePC 900a, eeepc_laptop does not work.

The module does work, but it is not compatble to the asus_acpi module.

I had to blacklist it and go to the asus_acpi module.

If there is a module in the kernel already, you should not replace it by
another one with questionable support.

This was the only way that I could get wireless to work.

If wireless works or not does not depend on eeepc-laptop vs. asus_acpi. That
depends on the wireless drivers (madwifi_ng or better compat-wireless). It's
the function of the hotkey that is influenced by the kernel module and the
supporting scripts.

This with eeeEvents-1.1 give me full function of the hotkeys.

The hotkeys will work too if properly configured. The scripts in the eeeEvents
rpm which are not compatible to the eeepc_laptop module and must be changed.
