    Angry Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    I did some googling and seems like my integrated video chip isn't supported in Ubuntu right now. Do I have any options other than just using the VESA driver that it's defaulted to? I mean, is there any hope that support will come for this video chip? Works great in Windows7.... comon' Ubuntu!!!

    11.10

    It's not Ubuntu's/Linux's fault that the GPU maker (PowerVR) won't release code or even documentation..

    Does this mean I should try and install this driver?

    No. Those packages are for a different GPU (and they use ARM architecture).

    Unhappy Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    Let me apologize my poor English,I`m not a native speaker.

    So is there a way to get gma 3600 working fine?

    I google for a while and find maybe kernel 3.3 could solve the problem.

    But when I configure the 3.3 kernel, only see gma 500 support(experiment), should I turn this on?

    I`ve tired about the vesa driver, only 4 modes of resolution available : (

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    I have hp mini 210 with gma 3650. I did a 3.4-rc1 custom kernel install hoping I will get X working. but still no luck. Xorg configures automatically with xorg -configure but when I run X, I only get a blank screen.
    any ideas guys

    Thanks

    Tried to reconfigure Xorg on my Samsung NC110-P05, Intel n2600 Cedar Trail-M based netbook with GMA 3600 but still no luck. Only 800x600.

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    Just tried meego, and it can work!!!

    now I can change my resolution from 1024x576 to 1920x1080.(but now I can`t switch lower such as

    800x600 or 640x480, but who cares?)

    I check the kernel and driver, kernel is 3.0.0-4.1-adaptation-pc, driver is pvr_drv.so

    Next goal is to find a way to make the kernel and driver can work with ubuntu 12.04.

    I also have 1024x600 on my GMA 3600 on Atom n2600 with MeeGo OS.

    I am about to install Lubuntu 11.10, download the latest stable kernel 3.3.1 from kernel.org and build it with GMA 3600 support. Some people say it works!

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    I am despair. Does anyone please has an idea on how to enable acceleration on this card. Atom N2800.
    I tried the latest kernel with Arch linux and no luck too.
    Does psb/gma500 with fbdev works???
    Is there a way to take the closed source driver from the Meego OS?
