    Hi Pateo,

    There’s a pb with all 3.2.x kernels, the emgd dkms exit with an error about fbcon.c “THIS MODULE” not declared… so the module is not build, and Xorg don’t run, stuck with a blinking cursor …

    any suggestion ?

    I also tried to compile the kernels 3.2.6 and 3.3.rc2 myself with 3.1.8 .config, and same result …

    Hi Pateo,

    I’m trying to use your v3.2_master.diff with the 3.2.12 kernel sources, but have a lot of
    ” Reversed (or previously applied) patch detected! ”
    i use patch -p1 < ../v3.2_master.diff
    or
    patch -p1 -N
    or
    patch -p1 -R

    and when trying to build the kernel many errors at the beginning like :
    include/linux/bitops.h:77:21: erreur: redefinition of ‘rol64’
    include/linux/bitops.h:57:21: note: previous definition of ‘rol64’ was here

    how can i use the diff file ?

    thanks,
    Niop

    Any advise for my Toshiba nb205 with the following specs? (want Lubuntu)

    Intel® Atom™ processor N280 – 1.66GHz, 512KB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB
    Mobile Intel® 945GSE Express Chipset

    Is there something that works better? If so, I will certainly try it first from a pen drive and think about installing. For more than light workloads. I post because I don’t know too much about chipsets, but your custom kernel configs look to be for Nb205s slightly different then mine. how slight (or not), I don’t know, but you seem to indicate that the chipset is the differentiating factor, and mine doesn’t read exactly as yours

      Not able to comment as couldn’t find any information on the Nb205s. The Intel Atom N270/N280 is around 6 years old now so should work with most linux distributions (get a USB wifi adaptor if having driver issues with the built in wifi). Suggestion would be to choose a “lighter” distribution due to the Atom’s limited design and minimum RAM for netbooks.
