So far, the only real problems I've had that I haven't been able to solve with a quick Wiki/Google/FAQ read or from rote memory, are these two:

1) Aggh, fonts in rxvt and mutt! http://www.restivo.org/misc/ugly-fonts.png
	I solved this problem once before, somehow (LOCALE?), when I first set up my other Asus laptop, but I don't remember how exactly.

2) Suspend to disk works, but sudo /etc/acpi/sleep.sh does nothing. I've no idea why. I'd sure like to have RAM sleep working, since suspend-to-disk thrashes the SSD unnecessarily.

Not too bad. Once I get the above resolved, I'll try the 2.6.26-rt11 kernel and see how it goes.
