I am really hoping for a GMA500 drive with reasonable 2D acceleration so as to revive my old Fujitsu UMPC.
people will of course say that I should never have bought a GMA500 based netbook-like UMPC in the first place but it was a compromise I was willing to take, and I resent having to fall back to Windows on it for good media playback.
Any new news on this driver being released? I've been working with the GMA500 FBDEV driver developed by Alan Cox on CentOS 6.3 (3.4.13 kernel) and it works well, but I can't control brightness and was hoping this new driver would help.
Darn. Thanks for dashing my hopes. I going go back to working with a newer kernel b/c I hear there is better support for GMA500, unfortunately it breaks something else on my system. Maybe that will be easier to fix. Much appreciated for the response.
