Intel GMA 500
It looks like once more i´ve decided to buy a netbook without checking if all hardware fit's my needs.
I have a asus 1101ha width an graphic intel gma 500.
I´ve been searching the web and it looks like Intel is not developing a driver for linux systems.
I would like to know if anyone as the same graphic chip set, and if is there any work arround.
Hi I have the same hardware
For the moment I'm doing work properly the graphics card with the kernel 2.6.28-16 in ubuntu-jaunty (you have to add repo from ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main)
In Backtrack no success at the moment...
Intel has never had much to do with the linux drivers, they are actually maintained by a company called Tungsten Graphics.
You could give this a go ...

Hi Dr_GrEeN and thanks for info sharing
Well I've downgrade bt4pre-final to kernel 126.96.36.199 add to repo (deb hxxp://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main and deb-src hxxp://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntu-mobile/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main) add the gpg key(apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C6598A30)
Now the graphics works fine and you can run compiz if you want
For ethernet download compile and install (hxxp://partner.atheros.com/Download.aspx?id=103]Atheros Communications)
For wireless download make and install last stable release from hxxp://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download/stable/
i have a problem (not very use to Linux).
I have tried to do what you did, but i cant find kernel 188.8.131.52
i can only find 184.108.40.206
220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
where can i download 2.6.28
Again this is a case of you not searching and reading a little bit.

google + upgrade kernel ubuntu =
first result =
# apt-cache search kernel-image
You can find at kernel.org but I do not be strongly recommended to follow the procedure. This is really experimental.If however you want to try contact me in pm
Can you send me the details of the procedure, to downgrade the kernel on bt because i just added the repositories, but i cant find the kernel 22.214.171.124 to make the instalation.
Greetings and thanks
