    Dell mini 12 + Ubuntu netbook remix 9.10

    I just installed ubuntu netboox remix on dell mini 12.

    The experience was OK, I just had to install broadcom STA driver to get it working.

    One thing that was really unacceptable, was graphics. It was super slow. I found out that it runs vesa by default and tried to install Poulsbo driver, first from:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...oCardsPoulsbo/
    and then upgraded to:
    http://gadgetmix.com/index/new-gma-5...-karmic-koala/

    now, the 2d seems to work a bit faster, but I cannot get compiz running (I whitelisted it) with error:

    gandalf@gandalf-laptop:~$ compiz
    Checking for Xgl: not present.
    xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    Detected PCI ID for VGA:
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present.
    Trying again with indirect rendering:
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present.
    aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity

    and all glxinfo, glxgears give:

    gandalf@gandalf-laptop:~$ glxinfo
    glxinfo: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    Anyone has any experience with this?

    ok, after another hour, I reverted to the jaunty drivers and things started working.

    Now, unfortunately the compiz leaves ugly artifacts all around whenever I switch windows.

    Found out that desktop version is better than remix...
    My Dell mini 12, after installing 9.10, found audio and webcam problem. Did u having such issue also?
