Intel GMA 3600 drivers for Linux

Hello,

I want to install crunchbang on my netbook but then realized that there's no GMA 3600 drivers for Linux on intel's website. I searched and searched for drivers but couldn't find any.

If anyone could provide me with drivers that'd be awesome!

Thanks! big_smile

Well Statler isn't going to have it. Try Waldorf and maybe the newest kernels. I have Atom n2600 running fine (not on it at the moment so can't verify model and drivers). Siduction kernels seem to have more coverage too.

Re: Intel GMA 3600 drivers for Linux

Well...for Arch there's a discussion here.  It's actually a modification of the Fedora release, from what I can tell.  I've not done it myself, as I don't own the hardware, but have heard that Cedarview modules will work for them on Ubuntu and Mint, so it stands to reason that they should be able to be implemented into any Debian-based distro with some tweaking.  I'm sorry that this is all I can really help with.  If you haven't seen Intel's response to requests for assistance on this matter, it's worth checking out.  They practically said, "Go screw yourselves," to a the first few requests for an open-source release.  It would appear that after mainline kernel 3.3, there was an implementation of an experimental module to handle resolution controls, but acceleration won't be possible there.  If I had one of these little guys sitting around, I'd see what worked for me, but without being able to test it...I can't really make any promises.  Best of luck.

Those DLC links seem to be broken...

Re: Intel GMA 3600 drivers for Linux

My apologies.  Allow me to totally back Dura, then.  You'd have much better luck with a newer kernel.  I'd look into trying a Siduction kernel.  They may work with minimal tweaking on your part.
