Network issues :
- Wired :
I had to download Atheros driver and compile it to enable wired network.
First, do not forget to install build-essential.
sudo apt-get install build-essential tar xzvf AR81Family-linux-* cd AR81Family-linux-* ./configure make && sudo make install
- Wireless/Wi Fi:
Easier : just need to install linux-backports-modules package.
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-`uname -r`
Graphics issues :
Intel poulsbo drivers are required to have a working display. First make sure your system is up to date.
Then add the fellowing repository to your sources.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
and add ubuntu-mobile repository key :
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys C6598A30
Now we can install poulsbo drivers :
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install poulsbo-driver-2d poulsbo-driver-3d psb-firmware
Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to have a device section looking like this :
Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Option "AccelMethod" "EXA" Option "DRI" "on" Option "IgnoreACPI" "yes" Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy" EndSection
Last step :
sudo apt-get install psb-kernel-source
NB: If you got a kernel upgrade you need to remove psb-kernel-source and reinstall it in order to build the module for this kernel.
sudo apt-get remove psb-kernel-source && sudo apt-get install psb-kernel-source
It seems that Wireless works out of the box on karmic (ubuntu 9.10), wired network driver must be compiled and installed in the same way I did for jaunty.
Poulsbo graphics drivers install seems to be a little more tricky. Here is a thread on ubuntu forums that explains how to do this, but I haven’t tested it yet.
