    ...
    GMA chipset? I thought you said nvidia in post #1. Which is it?

    I had the same problems and went back to XP, yet then tried Windows 7 and it works great when compared to XP. The Available graphics Ram goes up to 700+ MB with 2 GB of RAM installed. Now if only the community would get Pualsbo working I imagine this system would work great with Ubuntu. We can only hope !

    Now if only Intel was not giving us the shaft we would not even be having this problem !

    I am typing this from a 'Poulsbo crippled' Dell mini 10 running Karmic UNR quite happily. Corporate suckers at Intel had made it hard to install the driver, but otherwise, no complains. I've also run Jaunty on it before Karmic.

    On the 1101HA the eeepc-laptop module won't load because ACPI is broken. And since it is now difficult to impossible to load your own DSDT...
    According to that thread, the only hope is that someone, someday, will implement an asus-wmi driver, but I don't have much hope.

    Edit: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/Model/1001HA - you need to edit /etc/default/grub and add acpi_osi='Linux' to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. I also tried "!Windows 2009" but it didn't work for me. YMMV

    Multitouch seems definitively broken, at least under kde. Even the old trick of adding a synaptics fdi to hal policy doesn't help (perhaps because hal is deprecated).
    FN keys in gnome/UNR seem to need another brightness parameter (acpi_backlight=vendor), and for eee-control check my post here. Also check that thread, as we are posting any progress with the poulsbo drivers there.

    I know this is a bit of thread necromancy, but have any of you been able to get suspend (ie the laptop goes to sleep when closed and/or the Fn+F1 buttons are pressed) and wake working?

    I can only suspend using this tweak:
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupp...oulsbo#Suspend by using uswsusp

    Which requires sudoing a certain command... not optimal for the non-technical members of my family...
