Re: linux on the Samsung NC20 netbook

The Samsung NC20 is now not entirely new. Several bloggers and journalists have devoted themselves to the first vias nano equipped. Now, the colleagues of the Linux community have a copy of the 12-inch model made and tested the NC20 to operate on Linux. The testers had from the beginning not an easy game. As a first step, they wanted to buy the NC20 a new mass storage, no greater, but a more robust.

Re: linux on the Samsung NC20 netbook

The BIOS does not recognize the flash-based storage. The solution to this problem was find the hidden features of the netbook. This switched the keyboard shortcut [Fn] + [11] and [Fn] + [F12]. A few settings later had operated the SSD. the tester came forward to the next. Under Ubuntu, and various derivatives started showing the login screen only a flickering image.

Re: linux on the Samsung NC20 netbook

if i talk about the media than, The media player was without 2D acceleration. media player and VLC on the other hand, the alternatives were unhesitatingly. 3D support was not get - therefore: Send effects are not there on the KDE desktop.

Re: linux on the Samsung NC20 netbook

i really like the linux os in the Samsung NC20 netbook and spwcially after realeasing the new kernel, which is fully supported for the netpad hardware. after this i dont think so we need anything else like any other patches or something else. i notice onegreat change which introduced in Linux-2.6.31 include the vanishing of the e_powersaver module, which detecting the correct frequencies of the Nano U2250, 800-1600Mhz.

Re: linux on the Samsung NC20 netbook

here what i experience after using this. no problem with resolution in openchrome, but this is works really slow. i just get 90 fps with glxgears after activated direct redering. Now I am going to try this through the driver. ram works perfectly. I activated it via menu, and now everything works perfectly like the screen shuts down, the power led blinks, and so on.
