    Re: GMA500 (Poulsbo) gma500_gfx

    Hi,

    I have installed psb-gfx for Ubuntu 11.10. How can I générate the config file? For Emgd for example it is possible with the command
    Code:
    sudo emgd-xorg-conf
    it generate 10-emgd.conf file into /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d. How can-I do the same with psb-gfx and gma-gfx for ubuntu 12.04?

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    What kernel are you using ? You do not need an xorg.conf for the gma500_gfx
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.

    Thanks for replying,
    I'm using mainline kernel 3.4.0-999 for ubuntu 12.04 and 3.0.0.20 for ubuntu 11.10.
    I need this file to install the eGalaxTouch drivers.

    Hey all,

    I was wondering.. what do you guys use to watch a decent avi/mkv these days? I tried a few, but none really work flawlessly... I know there is no hardware acceleration, but still.

    Cheers,

    I still use Lucid with the old (2008) psb driver.

    Question Re: GMA500 (Poulsbo) gma500_gfx

    Ok, i heard about the new support for gma500, and decided to do a fresh install of 12.04
    on my old, nearly untouched AAO 751h.
    when booting from the live cd, i took a forum members advice and did something like restart lightdm. (i am a very un-savvy user. i can follow instructions to use the terminal and change things, but i usually won't understand what i'm doing.)
    now when i boot up i get a black screen, which i can overcome somewhat by plugging in an external monitor.

    I'm finding myself rather confused about where to go from here, do i need to do all these settings changes i see written everywhere? or do i just need to run update manager to get the new kernel that supports gma500.

    I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out here .

    I don't use Linux (ubuntu) to watch any videos. I use Windows 7 for all my multimedia needs, much better performance. Just keep Ubuntu as a backup to see how the development is going. Sorry i can't be more help
