I am working through the same issues on the Intel DN2800MT board with integrated GMA3600 graphics.
I have also tried many of the distro's you listed and have been unsuccessful as well. I'm currently working on an FC16 platform and am compiling the vanilla 3.3-rc3 kernel with experimental support for the GMA3600 under the GMA500 driver. I have the following (relating to the GMA500 config) set in my .config...
# CONFIG_DRM_GMA600 is not set
# CONFIG_STUB_POULSBO is not set
I previously compiled in the STUB and GMA600 support and the system crashed as X started (I wasnt able to capture any logs). I'm hoping this new config will prove more stable.
The PNP ID for my GMA3600 is 8086:0be2 and lspci states that is it rev 09. What is the PNP for the device you are working on? Also, have you had any success? My goal at this point is getting support for common display resolutions.
My plan is http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=MTA1ODI as soon as I can get a DN2800MT. Tomorrow is another day and MeeGo is likely not my ultimate destination. If necessary, Intel will find folks smarter than I to show just how easy this can be in due course.
