    Question Ubuntu/Linux support for S1-AT5NM10E?

    Anyone know if Ubuntu supports the hardware in ASUS S1-Series S1-AT5NM10E (ION2-based barebone)?

    I am currently testing this system with Ubuntu 10.10.

    All drivers except NVIDIA ION2 GT218 are installed correctly by default.
    Proprietary NVIDIA drivers are available but I am unable to play 720p and 1080p films so far.

    Working on it, but progress is slow.

    Im interested in its performance in running concurrently:

    1080p hd video
    apache/mysql

    or concurrently:

    sdlmame
    apache/mysql

    What specs do u have, is the system loud?

    What is your exact issue in running 1080p?

    I'm still struggling with bluetooth and haven't had opportunity to test IR.

    Nvidia drivers was pretty straight forward.
    Sound over hdmi was little more troublesome but with google I was able to solve it.

    Even though I haven't tried the combination apache/mysql I believe that it should work for "home"-usage. I'm running nginx and have no trouble watching 1080p using xbmc simultaneously. I'm just using 2gb ram.

    I had some issues with horizontal lag in xbmc and flash when compiz was activated so I disabled it.

    Did someone fix the bluetooth issue? It doesn't work out of the box for me with 10.10. I just can't switch it on. I get a timeout error.

    HAs anyone been able to power up the system by using a remote control? I just can't get it to work.

    I try to get the system to Suspend and/or Hibrnate mode, but it just doesn't work.. any hints are highly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Kind regards
    Paul

    Hello

    I'd love it if you could explain how you got sound over hdmi working! I have googled and googled and can't get it working (have tried many suggestions). I have eliminated the cable (by playing another device through it).

    Thanks

    I have updated Ubuntu 10.10 running on this box.

    Here is what I've tried:

    Based on ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9219191&postcount=212 and the results of aplay -l I created /etc/asoung.conf and added:

    ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
    }
    This changed the NVidia HDMI card to the default card in alsamixer rather than the Intel card.

    Based on ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t=1617334.html and ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9988441&postcount=18 I ammended asound.conf to:

    pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    device 1
    }

    ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 1
    }

    I loaded the backports module as suggested by some posts.

    I tried putting "Options "IgnoreEDID" "True" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and turning off "Force full GPU scaling" in the NVidia X settings.

    I tried adding these lines (one at a time, not together) to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf:

    options snd-hda-intel model=ALC887
    options snd-hda-intel model=3stack

    HDMI is the default option in System > Preferences > Sound on the Output tab and is listed under the Hardware tab with a profile of "Digital Stereo (HDMI) Output".

    Not sure what to do next....

    Thanks

    I installed XBMC live on the S1-AT5NM10E, but sound isn't working.

    If I go to /etc/pulse/ then there is no default.pa file ?

    But if I do aplay -D plughw:1,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav then I hear a woman speaking front center.

    It's working now I had to uncheck DTS and AC3...
