Subject description: Looking for a Puppy Linux Derivative to work with my hardware.
 

Hi Everyone,

I want to give Puppy a start, but I have few questions.

Is there a Puppy Linux derivative which works with Intel GMA3600 GPU. I have a netbook with Atom N2600 and this card. Screen resolution 1024*600.

Looking for a distro which works out of box or with a little tweaking.

And to what extent is 3D acceleration supported on this card in Puppy land?

Maybe try UPUP Or Raring?

There's some talk on Cedarview Graphics.

Hi voiceinfog,

My condolences & sympathies on your graphics chip.

Perhaps this may help: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=724955#724955 and especially read the posts following it.

Here is what I know, and works... and what I am working on...

-Slacko5.3.3 works, out of the box with Vesa...
-Needs 2 gigs to work out nice
-Out of the box, audio works. webcam works, wireless works.

-Screen brightness works with setpci command...
-Ethernet port, need to load the r8169 module to get it working
-Video conference with google hangouts works...

I tried AlanC' GMA500 driver and got screen artifacts and not nice performance, so I downloaded the cedarview Intel drivers (the ones for meego) and recompiled under the Slacko 5.3.3 source, and with some tweaking, got it to work, so know the cedarview drivers load up, and graphics seem nicer. (no HD video yet)

Next step for me is to recompile and get working the Xorg's PVR driver, I downloaded the binaries but I have an ABI incompatibility with the binaries and my version of code. This means that I need to recompile PVR under Slacko 5.3.3. I have to download X, and the Mesa source and recompile from there...

Also, another thing I am looking at is turning off the damn fan...
And the suspend/resume

Another not with the cedarview module loaded, I loose the Console FB screens...something else to look at...

I get a good 4 hours running with the 3 cell battery.

I am happy for you that it does work. But the Intel provided drivers for the GMA3600 do not work on the kernel in Tahr. Therefore you will be running "unaccelerated graphics". You will notice once you play a 720P movie on your Eeepc. And 1080 is impossible.

Code:
Due to the complex package dependencies of the binary graphics drivers for the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 Series used in the Intel® Atom™ Processor N2600 Series and Intel® Atom™ Processor N2800 Series, supported drivers are only available through your device manufacturer or through Linux distributions providing support for the Intel® GMA 3600. An unsupported version of the binary driver is also available at
http://download.meego.com/live/MeeGo:/1.2.0:/CedarTrail:/non-oss

This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied warranty, and is bound by the license terms included with the download package.


There is a build on a 3.2.xx_non_PAE kernel that works with the above driver mentioned. On Ubuntu this requires 12.04 to use that kernel.

Condolences on the Eeepc (I have a X101CH, same chipset, same problem, soldered 1G RAM, so in my case it is XXXXXX. Win7 doesn't work on 1G).

Well. I think you are correct, the X driver is not accelerated for the PVR/Cedarview videochip. BUT, the vlc player the was included in quirky uses the vaapi or one of the other libraries with support for the Cedarview/HD videochip. Plays 780p nice, I would think that 1080p would be possible.

Actually this is why I have not ditched the Aspire One...

It's been a year that my daughter has an Acer Aspire One D270 that came with Win7 Starter on it.
It had 1G of RAM and has an Atom N2800 ( x86_64) with an Intel GMA 3600 . I put a 4G DDR3 memory in it but
it recognizes only 3G in all OS . I erased all the Acer tools on the HDD .
On that mini-notebook I can boot from HDD partition , USB-stick or external (usb) CD/DVD drive :
Puppy 431 , Racy 5.3 ,Carolina 1.1 , LxPup 13.11 ,Light Debian Dog , Fatdog64 620 and Lighthouse64 602 .
The performance of the Intel GMA 3600 is poor though - slight tearing in full screen videos it's the norm .
On Win7 it's only a bit better .

A few examples :
