    Re: Guide to Get the Best Performace from the GMA 500

    Hi again everyone!

    Ubuntu is running so nicely in the past few weeks on my Nokia Booklet 3G.
    However today I tried to connect it via HDMI to a TV screen.
    The Nokia Booklet 3G freezes and just locks up.
    It was already mentioned in this thread, exactly like it's happening with me, but that question was never answered, so I ask again.

    I think XServer crashes because it doesn't know how to handle the HDMI output.
    Maybe someone knows how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Matthew says you have to rebuild initrd/initramfs with psb module in it after applying the patches before Plymouth will (possibly) work. Haven't sorted that out yet.

    For Ubuntu 10.10, X 1.8 shouldn't be a problem, that's what F13 uses. I think kernel 2.6.35 should be OK too, though I haven't actually tested booting like that yet (F13 is still officially on 2.6.33).

    We'll probably also have to move the libdrm to /lib from /usr/lib/psb, which means renaming it (again) to libdrm-psb instead of libdrm...
    I'll see if I have time to look into that soon.

    We really need a decent driver... Anyway, the framebuffer patch was already in, so I am pushing only the firmware and the debug patches. I also removed the wrong source removal from postrm, and added a update-initramfs. We'll see after the next reboot if it still works...

    Ok.. good news!
    PSB working in maverick.. a bit of luck sometimes..
    Tried directly from a live session (alpha3) installing and modprobing psb drivers.

    Only issues to make the ppa was libva versioning (now conflicts with libva inside ubuntu repositories) and xserver-xorg-video-psb should provide xserver-xorg-video-6 instead of -5.

    Ok, we can resync libva to the one distributed by gbeauchesne, from here. It is now at version 0.31.0-1+sds13, what should we rename the version to for maverik?

    BTW, psb-kernel-source built, and should now survive kernel upgrades without problems. I am uploading it to the ppa now. libdrm/plymouth later...

    libva in maverick is 1.0.1-3 and it is a new entry in repositories, so i bumped 0.31.0 up to 1.31.0
    i know is ugly, was a quick workaround.. a better solution needed.

    We'll have to check what is the real libva version, and why was it renumbered as 1.0.1-3 in maverik. In the meantime, I have to upload the new psb-kernel-sources to the ppa. It will possibly give the same usual error of missing the source dir when updating, but that will be fixed for the next upgrades.

    I'll try it if no one says anything. The comments in the linked thread suggest it will work on Lucid.
    That s2ram --force works great on my dell mini 10- but I don't have a /usr/lib/hal/scripts directory much less a hal-system-power-suspend-linux file that I can find...

    I'm running 10.04 btw...

    Thanks,
