    However, I just emailed the guy from the FSF who showed off better GMA 500 drivers last fall. I'm hoping for an enlightening reply.
    Yes, please keep us posted. I'm sick of Windows 7, I swear I'm going to switch to Mac OS if they don't fix this soon.

    SlonUA, the most obvious issue is that the PPA you mentioned doesn't work for Lucid.

    for who don't use compiz and hasn't tried yet: enable metacity compositing. 2d performances are way better and you'll have shadows under windows/menus and an icon animation when launching programs from panel.

    alt+f2 -> gconf-editor
    under apps/metacity/general enable compositing_manager

    or run this command

    gconftool-2 -s '/apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager' --type bool true

    (false to disable)

    it would be better to set up a keyboard shortcut to enable/disable as it slows down full screen video playback

    ps. probably this will not work with the netbook remix version

    Lucid UNR Remix still seems to run smooth enough on my gma500 netbook without having a driver working.

    In fact, compared with the occasional freezes on the previous versions with the psb driver, my netbook is now actually useful thanks to lucid.

    Does anyone know a way to get the resolution right and the xrand working without using the psb driver?

    great news

    I tried this procedure on UNR 9.10 and it failed on install xserver-xorg-video-psb which was failing due to libdrm-poulsbo1
