    tried to revert to psb driver, didnt work.
    Is there a way to use this method on Karmic AND have native resolution?
    OR - can I restore psb?
    You get native resolution only when psb driver is installed, not in vesa mode..

    I've posted here how to get it working on Karmic and Lucid.. use the script for karmic

    Code:
    sudo wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1338581/Gma500/scripts/poulsbo.sh && bash ./poulsbo.sh
    And remember that it is better to install these drivers on a new Ubuntu installation.
    The ubuntu wiki page need to be updated with this script instead of the PPA

    I found a bug in Xorg 1.7.6 EXA code that prevents our driver to work. After this little fix I have opengl working on Lucid without ShadowFB. Now we need to get this into Lucid or maybe we post our own packages for poulsbo for the time being ?

    I think that would the best thing to do. Since most people are craving for a better poulsbo driver that can be used as for now.

    Thanks Luca, but I get something saying psb is broken or not installed properly. How do i remove it completely (so I can reinstall)?

    UPDATE: Purged and removed, then installed, works OK. Thanks!

    I'm so happy, great!
    I'm going to ask in ubuntu-x channel if the patch could be applied in a backport package.
    Otherwise we'll put a patched xorg in the gma500 ppa.

    Hi guys, I am a newbie and I am lost, tried loading the updated GMA500 driver with the command listed above, looks like all loads ok, but still unable to detect video card. I am running a new fresh install of lucid and have a dell mini 12 Thanks in advance for any help!!!

    PS I was going to throw this computer through a window when running XP b/c it was so slow, I LOVE ubuntu but would sure love to fix the graphics problem

    I had the same "psb is broken" or something close, as I said I am a newbie, how would I purge and remove? and I assume just do a clean install using "sudo wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1338581/Gma5...pts/poulsbo.sh && bash ./poulsbo.sh" ???

    Thanks again for the help!

    Use the following command:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge psb-kernel-source

    I'l start building a xorg package with the patch in the meantime, so we'll be ready to add it to svn and bzr asap.

    Built and running well. I have already updated bzr, will update svn asap. And update the binaries dir in svn in case anyone is in a rush to try 3D. Just don't forget to edit xorg.conf and comment the ShadowFB line.

    Thanks Yves! I think you just won the beer/pizza/whatever everybody was offering for a working version of the drivers!
