    Default ASRock 4Core1600P35-WiFi+

    Phoronix: ASRock 4Core1600P35-WiFi+

    For years ASRock has been regarded as very much a budget motherboard manufacturer, while over time they've begun to introduce motherboards with more enthusiast-level features and even products that are more overclocker-friendly. It wasn't until recently that they finally started offering Gigabit ethernet and IEEE-1394a Firewire on their motherboards, but this month with their 4Core1600P35-WiFi+ they have made another step forward showing that they are able to offer an economically-priced motherboard with Intel's P35 Chipset and even integrated 802.11g WiFi. We have our hands on the ASRock 4Core1600P35-WiFi+ for testing and we will be seeing how well this P35 creation performs on Linux.

    Michael, could you please add some technical data to the
    motherboard articles? I'm interested in lspci, lsusb and dmesg output (preferably from a very recent kernel (latest git )) so that there's an overview of the
    devices on the board.

    Still working on the best approach for publishing all of that technical information / Phoronix LCH 2.0 / et al. When returning from KDE release event, I may be able to post the ASRock info in this thread if I got the time.

    *bought the board all working fine, except the included WiFi module which just will not connect in Linux but works fine in Windows
    * also had the bent pins on the fan header

    considering a fresh install to see if that fixes the problem (running gutsy)

    Does anybody have this board working fully under Hardy AMD64 or Intrepid AMD64 ?

    my system specs
    e6300
    asrock 1600p35wifi+
    2gb ram
    nvidia 7900 gto
    twinhan tv card
    audigy 2
    ralink wifi card (always had problems with the inbuilt module)

    - need to us nvidia restricted drivers for 3d acceleration

    Especially suspend is really eluding me.

    hardy -19 kernel does not boot properly at all
    hardy -17 kernel does boot but does neither suspend or hibernate.

    I have tried a complete blank install of alpha 4 intrepid boots fine but once again suspend does not work.

    any help really appreciated.
