    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    My netbook is Samsung NC110-P05 on Atom n2600 (Cedar Trail-M) with Intel GMA 3600

    I compiled lots of kernels and here are the results:
    1) stock 3.0.0-17: only 800x600
    2) latest stable kernel 3.3.2: works on 1024x600
    3) latest from git 3.4.0-rc3: works on 1024x600

    I compiled 3.4.0-rc3 (git) this way:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild

    I compiled 3.3.2 this way:
    Code:
    wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/linux-3.3.2.tar.bz2
    tar jxf linux-3.3.2.tar.bz2
    cd linux-3.3.2
    make menuconfig
    #press / to find "3600", enable GMA 3600 support
    make-kpkg clean
    CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
    cd ..
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
    cd /lib/modules && ls # here I take module-name-for-new-kernel for next update-initramfs
    sudo update-initramfs -ck module-name-for-new-kernel
    sudo update-grub
    sudo reboot
    BUT!
    VGA does not work on any of the kernels above
    On kernels 3.3.2 and 3.4.0-rc3 my WiFi card does NOT work.

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig
    eth0      Link encap: Ethernet  HWaddr *********
    lo        Link encap: Local Loopback
    My WiFi card is:
    Code:
    lspci | grep Network
    01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 (rev 34)
    I tried to download the latest iwlwifi ucode from Intel (http://intellinuxwireless.org/), but still have no luck
    Code:
    cd $HOME
    #check latest iwlwifi version here: http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Downloads
    wget http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwifi/downloads/iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz
    tar -zxf iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-18.168.6.1.tgz
    sudo mv iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-18.168.6.1/iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode /lib/firmware/
    On the kernel installing stage (dpkg -i) I also had these warnings:
    Code:
    "W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168f-2.fw for module r8169"
    "W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168f-1.fw for module r8169"
    Code:
    ls /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/
    rtl8168d-1.fw, rtl8168d-2.fw, rtl8168e-1.fw, rtl8168e-2.fw, rtl8168e-3.fw
    Indeed I don't have the mentioned above rtl8168f-2, rtl8168f-1.

    I can say that my WiFi card is not blocked by other apps. I checked it using rfkill.

    I tried to get it working with the mainline kernel rc2 and I too had the same problem with wireless.

    It is killing me. I am now using Meego OS and it is working really good. I will stick with Meego until someone comes up with a fully functional driver or somehow ports the driver from Meego.

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    BAD NEWS : (

    I take gtkperf on meego (using pvr driver) and ubuntu 12.04(using fbdev) both on 1600x1200,

    and find out the difference in total time is very very LARGE!

    ubuntu12.04 would done in about 15s, but meego is about 190s and more.

    I`m very disappointed and no reason to get the driver to ubuntu12.04.

    What you mean by no reason to get the driver to ubuntu12.04.

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    After playing around in MeeGo (with working resolution) I got tired of its bugs. Later on I decided to install Debian Wheezy (Testing). After installing Debian I built the latest stable 3.3.2 kernel from kernel.org. Now I have 1024x600 resolution and WiFi works. To get it working I had to put on my USB stick 3 non-free files: 2 *.uboot firmware files for my WiFi card (Intel Wireless Centrino N-130) and 1 file for Ethernet (from Realtek).

    It seems like one should put these drivers on the USB stick while installing Ubuntu. I tried to put them to my /lib/firmware/ after Ubuntu install but it didn't work. My kernel was built with turned on "Hotplug firmware loading support". I think there are some other unresolved dependencies.

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    I would like to know if when the 1024x600 resolution work, you have 3d support (as with Meego) or you are still stucked with only 2d graphics.

    Is it possible to ?
    - Use directly Meego kernel with ubuntu
    - Build a Ubuntu chroot environment on Meego (it may be slow with a netbook)

    Re: Support for Intel GMA 3600?

    It`s possible to use meego`s kernel in 12.04.

    and you`ll find that your pc boot on with the framebuffer (not the vesafb)

    and you can get into xfce(this is the one I only tested) by using "fbdev" driver

    By the way, I did ripped the driver from meego and test it.but I got no luck

    it will ask you to match the Xorg version(which meego is 1.9.0 and ubuntu is 1.11)

    after I recompile my Xorg to 1.9.0 still cannot get the driver working.

    just hope Imagination Technologies can release the source code not just the binary driver

    or we have to wait very long time to get the SGX545 supported.

    tar jxf linux-3.3.2.tar.bz2
    cd linux-3.3.2
    make menuconfig
    #press / to find "3600", enable GMA 3600 support
    #exclude everything which contains this string "rtc"
    make-kpkg clean
    CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=`getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN` fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
    cd ..
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb

    but I've got another problem : display getting mad after resuming from sleep mode
