    Default Eee 1101HA graphics problem - Intel GMA500

    Hi!

    As some of you may know, intel has provided poor support with their GMA 500 chipset in linux. I experience bad frame rate (lag when scrolling in firefox), and also im limited to 1024x768 resolution.

    I've found a couple of possible solutions to the problem, and im wondering if anybody has applied these successfully to their Backtrack installation?

    Poulsbo driver:
    Get GMA500 (Poulsbo) working in Karmic with Jaunty backports.. - Ubuntu Forums
    IEGD 10.3 driver:
    nanoANT » Blog Archive » Compiling kernel IEGD 10.x module for any Linux distribution

    I am grateful for all input on this.
    Thank you!

    BUMP. Nobody who has managed to fix this?

    Instead of you bumping which is against the rules you agreed to, try one of the supposed fixes you posted and tell us if it works or not. Try a few different things out and post back the relevant info and maybe we can further assist.

    I'm sorry, I wasn't aware of this. I guess i should read the rules next time! Just wanted to know if somebody has tried this, before i risked a reinstall of my BT installation. I'll test some of the different things, and report back to you
