    Quick note - I've just added some patches to the Fedora kernel module build that Matthew Garrett sent to me. The big thing is a framebuffer fix which he says should make Plymouth work. See http://cvs.rpmfusion.org/viewvc/rpms.../?root=nonfree - the patches are the 0001, 0002 and 0003 ones.

    Removing the s99video script also worked on my Acer AO751H as well.

    I second the excellent catch!

    Sorry if this is an ignorant question - after installing with Lucazade's custom respin, is it safe to do a kernel upgrade? One just appeared in update-manager, and I'm concerned...

    Yes, the worst that may happen would be that you would need to either rebuild the driver or boot an old kernel.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    So has anyone successfully gotten this to run on ubuntu 10.10 alpha 3? If not, how would I go about building the driver on 10.10 from the ppa? Sorry, I've never built anything from a ppa before :-\

    I think 10.10 is still with xserver 1.8, right? The problem with getting psb working with 10.10 is that it comes with kernel 2.6.35. The kernel module doesn't compile with anything above 2.6.34 -- and even then requires this patch: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/90678/

    That patch had been applied to the tree.. right now i'm using 2.6.35 from kernel ppa. So i believe the kernel should be not an issue.

    I've build the psb packages for maverick but i haven't tested them yet because i haven't installed maverick in the netbook.
    If anyone want to try use my repo (i made some quick-dirty-hacks to build them so consider them only temporary!):

    let me know if works!

    Wow, that 99video removal really works.... even on Fedora!
    And does it ever pop back to life FAST.

    So I tried the Meerkat Maverick Alpha 3 on my MSI Wind U110 and just to be sure I tried the live Ubuntu first and I couldn't get into gnome - I just hung after the background loaded. Here are some highlights from my /var/log/syslog if anyone cares (note: typing by hand because my netbook is my other computer):
    Code:
    GLib-GObject-CRITICAL: g_value_get_boolean: assertion 'G_VALUE_HOLDS_BOOLEAN (value) failed
    WARNING: Unable to find provider '''' of required component 'panel'
    I don't know if those are useful at all but those are the only errors that gdm sent me. Would poor psb support do that? If so, I could try installing anyways and then installing the ppa from a command line.

    edit: I managed to install both through some very convoluted process but I get tons of graphical corruption in both gnome and the ttys so I think that 10.10 is not yet workable on the gma500.
