On the other hand, I see more things implemented in the non-Intel-IP side than on the Intel-IP side. In particular, video decode acceleration. IEGD does not support that on G45 chips for example. Besides, IEGD supports OpenGL ES on US15W.

Looks like they're targeting JULY for an EMGD release according to this: http://bugs.meego.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2205
And judging by this: http://bugs.meego.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2226
** it would appear that EMGD ***IS*** IEGD. Right down to the point where they developed EMGD straight out of IEGD. This kind of supports my theory that they are discontinuing SGX support in IEGD and focusing on a driver specifically for it.
Considering intel's said the Atom Z600 series *cannot* run Windows, they'd better get this smeg sorted out quick, since otherwise they won't be able to run *anything* worth a darn
Although hopefully they were smart enough to enable VT-x on the Z600 (if possible) and then it wouldn't be too hard to emu a PC on that...
I'm also a bit frustrated. I bought my netbook as many in the hope that Intel would provide a well working open source driver, at least excluding 3d and vaapi. Then I managed to get it running at all and then including 3d and vaapi (see http://linux-tipps.blogspot.com/2009...-msi-wind.html) and i was quite happy.
But I never managed to get several things to work:
* reliable standby (works once or twice if I haven't used 3d or vaapi)
* backlight regulation.
(Does anyone know how to fix any of this?)
Now I have the crazy situation that in Windows XP I can use standby and 3d but no HD, and in Linux I have better quality and vaapi HD video playback and 3d, but no standby. And I'm frustrated.
It's such a nice netbook and performs so well otherwise, it's really frustrating if drivers keep you from really enjoying what you bought. Please Intel, at least release open source specs!!!
btw. Has anyone managed to get DXVA running in Windows XP or Vista or 7?
Why don't you use W7? You need DXVA2 anyway when you want to try vlc 1.1.
Yes, it's working on my Fit-PC2 with Windows 7.
