How exactly did you build the new kernel and which version?

Does the screen still work when it wakes up from sleep/standby?

And do WiFi and LAN work?

I built the current version of the kernel in experimental (3.3.2-1~experimental.1); the method is in the previous post.

I’m afraid I don’t use sleep or standby.

Yes, but then my machine (an Asus Eee) has an Atheros wireless card which is one of the more painless ones to get working on Linux.

Thank you, maybe I'll give it a try later on. I've tried Ubuntu 12.04 Beta 2, then with Kernel 3.3.3 - and now I've decided to give Meego 1.2 a chance. If that doesn't do it either I'll come back to compiling a 3.3.2 kernel. :-)

How do I clear the following error obtained when following the procedure?

Code: Select all
root@n2800:/usr/src/linux-source-3.3# make xconfig
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
  CHECK   qt
* Unable to find the QT4 tool qmake. Trying to use QT3
*
* Unable to find any QT installation. Please make sure that
* the QT4 or QT3 development package is correctly installed and
* either qmake can be found or install pkg-config or set
* the QTDIR environment variable to the correct location.
*
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/conf.o
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.c
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.lex.c
  SHIPPED scripts/kconfig/zconf.hash.c
  HOSTCC  scripts/kconfig/zconf.tab.o
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `scripts/kconfig/.tmp_qtcheck', needed by `scripts/kconfig/qconf.o'.  Stop.
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2


Both qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake were properly installed in a prior step.

Two observations may help to those who wish to follow. First, stable has unresolved dependencies under this approach. The testing distribution looks good so far. Second, the suggested tar command dropped a " -" parameter after the word tar.

Edit: I created a soft link using:

Code: Select all
ln -s /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/qmake


which permited completion of the procedure sucessfully. The remaining issue involves creation of xorg.conf.

Could anyone who has sucessfully completed this 3.3 kernel procedure post a working example of a Cedar Trail xorg.conf file? The 3.3 kernel forces a "mode not supported" by my monitor and also does not create an xorg.conf file. Modification of a working xorg.conf file sounds like the easiest solution.

Hey jacobh,

nice how to. I managed to get the graphic card of my Asus Eee PC 1011CX working with resolution 1024 x 600. I started with installation Linux Mint Lisa Kernel 3.0 and compiled/installed Kernel 3.3.7 following the steps further down:

apt-get update
apt-get install fakeroot kernel-package qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake libncurses5-dev wget bzip2 build-essential zlib1g-dev
cd /usr/src
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/ ... 3.7.tar.gz
tar xzfv ./linux-3.3.7.tar.gz
ln -s linux-3.3.7 linux
cd linux
make clean && make mrproper
cp /boot/config-3.0.0-12-generic ./.config
make menuconfig
make-kpkg clean
fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers
cd ..
dpkg -i linux-image-3.3.7-custom_3.3.7-custom-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
dpkg -i linux-headers-3.3.7-custom_3.3.7-custom-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
reboot

Thank you!!!

for ubuntu precise
http://www.silentpcreview.com/forums/vi ... 9&p=558348

thanks to gryle,woks for my he post this :
There is a ppa repository with drivers for ubuntu 12.04 in here: http://ppa.launchpad.net/sarvatt/cedarview/ubuntu/

I've managed to get accelerated X working in Ubuntu 12.04 with these steps:

#Add repository in http://ppa.launchpad.net/sarvatt/cedarview/ubuntu/ :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sarvatt/cedarview
sudo apt-get install add-apt-key
sudo add-apt-key 0x4c96de60854c4636
sudo apt-get update

# Add video=LVDS-1:d to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable
sudo vi /etc/default/grub

# if you're using PAE kernel, remove it and install generic kernel
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic linux-image-generic
sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-generic-pae linux-image-generic-pae

sudo apt-get install cedarview-drm libva-cedarview-vaapi-driver cedarview-graphics-drivers

#Change Option "AIGLX" to "Off" because 3D isn't working
sudo vi /usr/share/intel-cdv/X11/xorg.conf.d/61-cdv-pvr.conf

sudo update-grub2

I have an ASUS 1025c netbook and I had the same problem. And I hardly know anything about computers so I've been searching for a solution for 3 days!

I was going to settle with Meego until the release of Tizen, but I decided to install the 32 bit Windows 8 preview ISO and (after encountering the same problem and more dead ends) I visited the ASUS site, downloaded and installed the Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver (click on VGA in the menu) and my problem was finally solved.

Don't know if it works with Ubuntu. Don't drivers get installed on a partition separate from operating systems?

Don't bother answering that. I've had enough of these kind of forums to last me a lifetime.

My good deed is done and I'm gone.

With apologies for reviving an old thread, but I noticed that, last month, Intel released some graphics drivers for this architecture. There are some instructions for building a 3.1 kernel on Ubuntu to use them. I was wondering if anyone who has had some more experience of working with kernels than I might be able to look through the instructions and see if they should work on Debian (with the usual adjustments for differently-named packages etc.)?

Thanks!

Wow, great find Jacob! Building kernels in Debian should be comparatively the same with Ubuntu.

Hi Jacob, I have compiled the kernel (in ubuntu) using intel's instructions with just a little modification. You can have a look at it: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=82222

That's how I would do it in debian as well. Anyway, it took the n2600 atom 3 hours to finish.

I just want to confirm that the instructions for building a vaapi-enabled mplayer found here http://download.intel.com/support/mothe ... ntu_12.pdf absolutely works wonders.

Intel also released an adobe flash plugin with hardware acceleration (absolutely works wonders) found here https://registrationcenter.intel.com/Re ... uctID=1618. Download the meego flash plugin (flash-plugin-10.2.0-Meego_Release.rpm) and replace your currently installed libflashplayer.so.

Note: I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (LXDE) with cedarview drivers found here https://launchpad.net/~sarvatt/+archive/cedarview/

Thanks for the recommendation of the flash plugin. You are absolutely correct; it does make an enormous difference to using the default plugin when watching (the disappointingly omnipresent) flash videos.
