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.
