        Hello Diego at Intel,

        I suggest you do some actual research before pointing to a webpage that lists other graphics chips than the one in question.

         

        GMA3600 and GMA3650 on atom n2600 and n2800 does not currently have proper support in any linux distribution.  Except some experimental closed source drivers in meego linux.

         

        You should put up a BIG WARNING to people planning to use these graphincs chips in linux!  Most intel graphics have excellent linux support, but the gma500 and now recently gma3600 and gma3650 have really poor support and closed source drivers.

          We are using MeeGo as a last resort.... But having this driver in open-source lets us choose the linux distro we want. You guys are taking away our ability to choose.

            Lack of proper linux support is a big disappointment. No one cares about drivers for a discontinued minor distribution such as MeeGo.

             

            Please address the problem, so that at least video acceleration could be present in main distributions!

              Come on Intel - fix this already!

               

              I thought you had improved your linux driver handling after the gma 500 failure. Apparently not. By the looks of the lack of replies from Intel reps here I guess the only user feedback that will help is to make sure not to buy intel products in the future.

               

              For others who plan to run Ubuntu on a computer with GMA 3650 then do check out this thread for updates

                Great to see the effort that's already being put into Ubuntu and the upstream Linux Kernel, and we shouldn't be too far away from some sort of decent working 2D driver hopefully.

                 

                But it would be nice if Intel commented themselves, it's all well and good burying heads in the sands in the hopes that over time the problem will go away, but it's us users yet again that have been given the shaft when it comes to support for PowerVR based hardware. Even a 'Yes we are listening, but no support, because we can't be bothered' would actually help in some ways, at least then folks would know where they stand.

                 

                Wouldn't be the ideal solution for customers though, once bitten (GMA 500), twice shy (GMA 3600/3650), three times never...

                  I bought a Intel desktop board DN2800MT which has the atom n2800 chip and GMA3650/PowerVR sgx545 graphics, I am terribly disappointed that no proper linux drivers are readily available.
                  Having been a loyal buyer of intel products, this shakes my confidence in Intel and it's brands and will force me to look for products comparable to intel that do support linux. The leading chip maker in the world can't put pressure on their suppliers (PowerVR) to provide a driver for linux? Come on!

                   

                  ****** off customer!

                    Same situation : I bought the DN2800MT to make a mini-itx HTPC without graphic card, on linux. I thought Intel was good with drivers for linux, but on this GMA 3600/3650, you are really bad.

                      I wish I would have read this before I ordered a D2700DC motherboard. I feel like I've got egg on my face now. I guess this is what refunds are for.

                        I am totally not satisfied with Power SGX545. Intel needs to stop ignoring us and focus on their community.

                          @ 1st. I have don´t know what a sh~~t this D2700DC is. I have buy it because i have @ last update from Laptop 4GB Ram / 320 GB HD + 4 GB SSD Mini PCi-E . ok it´s cheap and the Performance @ 10W from Dualcore Atom let me Think to build a  "Windows 8  Social/Media-Center" Touch-Display @ Wall and HDMI to TV- You can Use the System and make the Kino on TV-Screen.

                           

                          BUT THERE IS NO WIN 8 Driver

                          (Windows 8 works fine but no Display driver)

                           

                          - Windows 7 X64 no Support

                            Sorry, this thread is about Linux support, not Windows one. I'm sure it's just a matter of time when Win8 is supported, contrary to Linux.

                             

                            Intel, come on, please respond, anything. Respect your customers who are not worse than ones who use Windows. Or you really think they are? I know Intel reps read this thread, why do you show us the middle finger?

                              I seriously start to doubt that...Intel GMA 3600 with drivers only for Win 7 and even in Windows 7 they dont work decently....soooo do you really think Win Xp drivers will come good? Even Win8...LET ALONE linux...

                                It appears so.

                                  It is an utter disgrace that Intel does not provide drivers for this hardware other than Windows 7.

                                  I mean come on, it is not like we are asking for an arm and a leg. We just want basic functionallity.

                                  A simple Linux driver that offers stability would suffice, but even that seems to be to much to ask.

                                  It would appear that Intel has become to big and thinks that they can slack on what made them great.

                                  The last thing a company should ever do is cut back on support for its products.

                                  Lead, follow or get out of the way, it is 2012 and not 1998.

                                    Glad I found this thread. I was about to place an order for 20 of D2700/GMA 3600-based mini-pcs which would run Ubuntu. I was so happy with a similar setup using Atom D525 + GMA 3150 and I thought I could not go wrong about Cedar Trail. Now I am considering AMD Fusion architecture instead, just bought a test unit.
