I tested scorched3d under windows and it plays fine, well over 30fps. It runs an order of magnitude slower under ubuntu. Are people having better luck with certain nvidia driver versions on these machines? I'm using the 185 version that is default under karmic.
Thanks for letting me run you guys around for assistance... turns out it was an I-d-10-T error. I was writing the image to a thumb drive but the thumb drive was 16gigs... I hadn't done enough reading to know that I needed to partition it down to 2gigs or less to burn the image to on the thumb drive. It ended up misfiring my installs even if I got it up and running it ran very badly.
Again sorry for the run-around.
I was having similar problems when trying to install 9.10. The initial boot menu would appear, but would only lead to a blank screen with a blinking cursor no matter what option was chosen. Installing 9.04 instead worked fine, then upgrading the graphics driver, the 9.04 updates, and upgrading to Karmic and everything seems to be working flawlessly. Wifi, sound, video, suspend, it all looks great.
Two quick questions though:
This machine is replacing an HP mini 1110NR which had a button above the touchpad to disable it. Does anyone know of an equivalent way to achieve the same thing on this machine with 9.10?
Secondly, is there an easy way to switch to the classic desktop? The NBR is great for small screens, but I think the 311 has enough screen real estate to warrant at least trying the classic desktop.
I just installed NVidia ION support for my Asus Eee Top 2002T and it work perfectly.
This is how to do it (32-bit):
Save the file and go to a terminal and cd to the directory where you saved the downloaded file. Then do:
then reboot: sudo rebootCode:sh ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.42-pkg1.run
Hope it helps!
what do you get? You might need to add yourself to the "video" group for hardware GL support to function (the devices don't get ACLs added to them for console users, for some reason). I've run several Linux and Windows 3D games on Ubuntu, with both the 185.xx and 190.42 drivers (Telltale Games titles, American McGee's Alice, Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, Heavy Gear 2, ...) with no problems, so I can say that hardware 3D definitely works.Code:glxinfo | grep '^direct rendering:'
is anyone here having problems with sound over hdmi - i have a panny plasma and there is a strange buzzing sound coming over the hdmi audio.
Also i am unable to get a meaningful resolution to work with hdmi display - what settings do people here work with - twinview, separate x, etc?
I'm thinking of purchasing a compaq 311c, in the UK the only version on offer is the 311c-1010SA which is allegedly limited to 1GB of RAM. Has anyone actually got one of these and if so can you confirm that there is a spare (SO)DIMM slot?
Has the latest realeases of Karmic fixed the wifi issues or have I got some fiddling to do to get it to work? (1010SA has b/g not n wifi).
Nvidia have confirmed that the ION-le works with VDPAU, I'm just concerned that if the 1GB limit is real that VDPAU will choke on 1080i content from my mythtv box - which would be the main reason for getting this little beauty in the first place
I've got a acer aspire revo which uses the same chipset (well, a non-le ION); getting audio over HDMI required some fiddling and I still get no audio when playing flash videos. Apart from that it's absolutely fantastic, can't fault it for a £150 purchase
