    The box is really new so far I tested 2.6.24* 2.6.25 , linux-next , current git from
    which no one worked. And yes is right graphics under Linux didn't worked right without
    patch from

    I run :

    xorg-server ( it has all fixes from server-1.4-branch )
    mesa 7.0.2-2
    xf86-video-intel 2.3.0-1

    Probably I have to replace 2x2G with 2x1G to get it work without this patch but it is something I don't really want to do =)

    Also I'm not sure whatever this is an BIOS bug ? I could contact ASUS people if someone tells me what is wrong with the BIOS.
