B131 on Acer Aspire One 10"

Hi All,

 Just did an image-update on a B128a install to B131.

suspend / resume is working again, compiz is fine also without /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Looks like engineering has been busy.

How about Acer Aspire One 11.6?
Does B131 support GMA500?

Best Regard.

No, there is no Xorg driver available

@Ryo,

The GMA500 (poulsbo) chipset is pretty much a loss on anything but windows because of the proprietary driver that Intel licensed from elsewhere. It is unlikely that you will see support for that chipset any time soon. This chipset is somewhat of an anomaly and most other Intel graphics should work fine. Fore more info google poulsbo + linux

Hi,

I have Fedora on the GMA500, it's faster than Windows 7.

There are Ubuntu binaries also.

Thank you for your info.

I want to use OpenSolaris on Acer Aspire One 751. But I try to use Linux on it.
