i am new to this board/mailinglist. i hope you can help me with the
i got a brand new Samsung X10 XTC1300 Centrino laptop. it has got an
nvidia gpu (geforce 4 420 go).
with all the needful hints at www.tuxmobil.org i nearly completed the
installation of my debian woody distribution.
soundcard, nic, ide and cdrom are working fine, acpi seems to be a
huge problem with centrino notebooks though.
i'm currently running an 4.1.0-16 xserver with the vesa-driver since
the nvidia driver doesn't work at all.
i really tried everything: compiling kernels over and over, but
nothing helps. even the kernel patches from alan cox
(with a new agpgart-module) didn't help, the nvidia driver produces
nothing but trash.
all i ask for is some useful information concerning graphics
acceleration on that samsung machine because
every time i want to play mpeg-videos (for instance), my xserver
chrashes. i suggest it's the vesa driver so i barely
need the nvidia-driver working.
thanks in advance
