    It’s now doing fine on my Dell Mini 12.

    Why you need to do these changes? What was the issue?
    Here on natty and acer works without problems.

    Hi guys.

    hummm... what's happen in psb-dkms?

    hopefully let us see your make.log. we should share the issues, right?
    and basically, /var/lib/dkms directory is the "temporary" cache for building. so it didn't any effectiveness for "editing sources", so why he made a success on such method on Ubunt???
    every time these directories must be refreshed by dkms whenever you run dkms. yep. the temporary. included me, no one used such directory to edit/patch the sources...

    if you guys really want to edit the sources, you should work in where stays in /usr/src/*. yeah there is the real sources.

    cheers.

    Luca, is Natty the best option for the 751? With which driver pack?

    Thanks a lot.

    You have 2 options in Natty: emgd (slow 2d, good 3d and vaapi playback)
    or psb_gfx that gives only a fast 2d.
    both have pros and cons.. I use the netbook mainly for webbrowsing so psb_gfx is enough for me.

    I’m on Natty with the 2.6.39-020639rc4-generic kernel loaded— it’s the most recent 2.6.39 kernel I could find for Natty. I switched to psb_gfx because my X server kept crashing when I used emgd, especially when I switched from KDE to Unity 2D; since I switched to psb_gfx, it’s been very solid.

    I figured there was no point in editing the sources in /usr/src because the only thing that would trigger a new build would be a new version of psb_gfx coming in anyway, in which case I would need to edit the new sources. So I edited them in the same directory in which the build was running.

    I couldn't understand what you did that...

    psb-dkms package must give us the sources into /usr/src/ and dkms runs. whenever dkms runs, dkms would make temporary directory in /var/lib/dkms/MODULE_NAME/VERSIONS/build by using the sources installed in /usr/src/MODULE_NAME-VERSIONS/.

    so if you guys edited the sources of psb-dkms in /usr/src/, then needed only a command:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure psb-dkms
    yes. that would run all dkms building service automatically and properly.

    but if not, building process couldn't work properly, for example, missing system-wide headers, missing targets, and so....

    I couldn't suggest such "tricky" building. for me, I often use "make" command when I do patchworks, but it's only useful in local directory build. and surely I understand "what is the make modules in kernel?". actually, I haven't any ideas why u need module parameter to make? it's completely wrong... because I wrote this Makefile and we didn't need any patches for build against 2.6.39.

    finally I need to see your make.log.
    * if build was not success:
    /var/lib/dkms/MODULE_NAME/VERSIONS/build/make.log
    * if succeeded
    /var/lib/dkms/YOUR_KERNEL/build/make.log

    Ah OK. I understood. latest psb-dkms is now 0.2.37~snapshot1, right?

    this version is NOT my works...

    well... it seems to need doing patchworks. because this build process had done nothing... damned...

    patch is here:
    http://paste.ubuntu.com/650934/

    @Luca

    who could export the module build parameter "CONFIG_DRM_PSB"? on Natty, there is few people playing with Moorestown/Medfield GMA600 and/or SGX540, so I suppose we didn't have to concern such future platform...

    Yep, it is my works.
    I can assure here it works, I'm using it right now.

    I'll look at config drm psb in makefile anyway.

    Thanks.

    I'm afraid that they might go with 2.6.39-x-rc kernel. but you seem to use ubuntu .39 kernel. anything different are existed between them?

    cheers.
