I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a Acer nettop Revo RL80 without success. I tried xorg x-swat, xorg edgers, linux kernel 3.2, 3.5 and 3.6 (3.6.5 specifically) but I cannot get the Intel HD videocard to work. If I set nomodeset in a file in the /etc/modprobe.d directory or in the /etc/default/grub file I can boot. This is without any video card hardware acceleration. No need to say this s*xx for a PC meant to use as XBMC player. So a 10 FPS with CPU at 200%
The problem is see is or a black screen, but most of the time I see a colorful screen showing all rainbow colors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
