There's no need to use any costum kernels in Ubuntu 12.04. Just install the cedarview ppa and you're all set. Flawless 720p and mostly ok 1080p output to HDMI if you're running supported media players like vlc or the custom Chromium-13 with accelerated flash video. Forget about OpenGL gaming.
opengl wont work anybody know what i need??
At the moment it wont work period. You need patience or getting yourself a different graphics card. OpenGL ES is supported, so some stuff like compiz are currently being ported. Even in Windows the OpenGL is useless, so you might as well give up straight away.
may 28 2012 i post this PPA/sarvlat tutor on ubuntu forum [ubuntu] Support for Intel GMA 3600? - Page 10 - Ubuntu Forums
like Gryle solution from silentpceview
but didint work so well ..Could you compare the xorg.log.
In releasenotes.txt with fedora driver you can see this
* OpenGLES 2.0 hardware acceleration
* HTML5/WebGL GLES hardware acceleration
so why i get 60fps on glxgears
What could possibly be the reason for such a mess? Anyone's got an idea?
Well, as the chipset is so cheap, Intel probably don't make enough money on them to be bothered about having to raise the level of support.
Also, as it's PowerVR hardware, Imagination Technologies probably have to meet them half way on any issues, so there's potential for almost nothing to be done
I installed a recent version of Absolute Linux slackware on my sandybridge 35-watt celeron system, only to find that the graphics was a total disaster, with jerky motions as the main symptom, no matter what strategy was adopted to coax good behavior. Having noticed that the Cedarview MeeGo/Tizen kernel seemed to have things that went beyond the usual Linux framebuffer, I installed a recent adaptation-pc kernel on the sandybridge system (you know the one with the power-brick connector in back), and suddenly, sandybridge began to behave exceptionally well, using its latest intel video driver, which was well satisfied that it was dealing with an authentic intel framebuffer. In fact, I am writing this from the sandybridge with the Cedarview kernel. What is more, this 35-watt sandybridge setup can run the Peacekeeper benchmark on google-chrome,, complete with the bouncing globe with the little globes inside, with no glitches, once its buffer is full. And it gets a score of 1879 (full buffer score).
Hello, I'm new here and I'm thinking about buying a motherboard for my MythTV frontend based on Mythbuntu 12.04, for example Asrock AD2700-ITX.
But as I saw here and in other discussions there is no GMA3650 Linux support. If there is such big problem for Intel to hire one or two Linux programmers for writing GMAxxxx driver(s) I'm going to buy other board and will NOT recommend Intel as a good HW manufacturer.
Sorry, but I will not rebuild my system with old components ( like kernel 3.1.* which is now "End of line" and Xorg 1.11.).
No, I'm not a fan either of building for older kernels, let alone the rest of the dependency issues. Should be at least 3.2 to match current distros that are available.
