I have the Asus 1015B, with AMD Brazos (Fusion) C-50 Ontario CPU - AMD 6250 HD GPU.

OOTB, I am running Natty Beta 1 and Beta 2 with no problems mostly. But if you want GPU acceleration for VLC, you need to install some packages for xvba, libva etc etc.

I also found that when the machine goes into full suspend (C6), it will not resume. Powering it down and powering up thereafter fails as well. You need to remove the battery and ac power adapter to power up.

Disabling C6 mode in BIOS allows the system to suspend and resume properly.

Am trying to find patches or workarounds to allow C6, as this will allow longer suspend time.

This may also apply to Acer Aspire One 522 machine with the same AMD Brazos cpu-gpu configuration.

If you could detail the steps you took to get vlc running with GPU acceleration, that would be great. On my Acer 522 I have tried the libva, xvba from http://www.splitted-desktop.com/~gbeauchesne/ and built VLC from git, but the CPU still does the majority of decoding and HD 720p+ videos are choppy.

Also, the Acer 522 had no bios options for suspend method, but suspend/resume works with open source ati, but not with fglrx.

I believe I got it all working with files from https://launchpad.net/~dtl131/+archive/catalysthacks

It will replace vlc as well as a few other files. When updated, run vlc, enable GPU accel. I got cpu down to 17% ~ 20%. Disabling gpu accel, cpu shot up to 80+%.

Disabling C6 in the bios resolved my suspend/hibernate issues, cheers.

I'm still having problems with VLC and GPU acceleration. I tried the catalysthacks ppa but the update fails to upgrade vlc with the following;

Any ideas? I'm running 11.04 natty on ASUS 1015B. Thanks
