    Changed the icon theme , added a few background images, and installed zsh + audacious.

    As far as the kernel - removed the poulsbo (stub) module.

    Rebuilt the intramfs - removed the poulsbo (sub) module.

    hey all
    i'm on ubuntu 11.10 and installed emgd from https://launchpad.net/~gma500/+archive/emgd-1.8.

    in them moment my netbook only works with kernel 3.0.0.13. if i switch to 3.0.0.14 or 3.0.0.15 i get a white screen at boot.
    also run sudo dpkg-reconfigure emgd-dkms inside 3.0.0.14/15 over ssh... no change...

    any hint?

    btw. with 3.0.0.13 all is working fine, also mythtv.. so thanks for that work...

    thanks
    thomi

    In follow up to my bug report

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/899244

    There is a test kernel for the gma500 / psb_gfx driver here:

    http://people.canonical.com/~ogasawa...244v1_i386.deb

    http://people.canonical.com/~ogasawara/lp899244/i386/

    Please test it out and give feedback.

    Tried it out on my Acer Aspire One 751h having removed my "blacklist poulsbo" from blacklist.conf. Works fine - thumbs up from me!

    I've been trying to diagnose suspend problems but proving very difficult...anyone else had any luck?

    unfortunately no luck in fixing suspend.. I thought it was related to kernel >3.x and not strictly related to hardware.

    I'd be interesting to know if other gma500 netbooks (different from our acer) hangs at resuming from suspend with a blinking orange power led.

    Hey Luca,

    I have tried a number of other Linux variants (Chakra, Fuduntu, Fedora, Arch etc.), all using kernels > 3.0 and all exhibit the same problem, so I think it is definitely kernel related. I'ev also tried adding various kernel parameters without any success. My suspicion is that somehow all input event handling is somehow becoming disabled in suspend since even the power key becomes inoperative. DO you know if a bug has been raised upstream for this?

    ciao

    good to know.. I agree with your suspect about input event handling not working during susped and unfortunately I don't know if there is an upstream bug.

    I wrote to AlanCox (psb_gfx author) telling him about some issues, like the suspend one.. from his last commits it seems he fixed this issue (at least for his Dell Mini) but I never seen it working here. So, sincerly I don't know where to open a new bug for it.

    Plymouth as well has problems with the KMS part of psb_gfx but Alan doesn't use Ubuntu so it will be probably not solved by him.

    You would need to compile a custom kernel.

    http://bodhizazen.net/Tutorials/kernel#GMA500

    If you scroll up in this thread you will find more specific instructions as well as a link to a custom precise live CD I built.

    I think the driver will be enabled by default in precise so perhaps wait for the beta release.

    The other good news is this driver works in all distros as it is part of the kernel. So as long as you are willing to compile a kernel or file a bug report with your distro the gma500 should work better out of the box.

    It should work in Fedora 17 as well, but at the moment Fedora 17 iso are not booting =(
