Post Mandriva 2010 RC2 supports Poulsbo - Fit-PC2
Hi all
Read http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS5930102209.html
It seems that we should spend some time with Mandriva 2010,

I just installed the RC2 version of Mandriva 2010. It detects the Poulsbo chipset fine, and everything goes well until I want to start the X server. Here I don't have the psb module - which is not located in the i586 DVD I installed from.
I did try "uprmi -a psb", but that went too far off....

I will now try with the ONE version of the 2010 RC2 - there the needed driver should be there.

If you get more success mail me :)

Check if enabled CONFIG_SMP ( Symmetric multi-processing support) in kernel configuration, and test driver performance on high display resolution. Compare with performance of default Ubuntu installation on same resolution.

i.e. recompile the kernel?

No, on Mandriva installation should be some kernel config file in /boot folder, like config-2.6.28-34-fitpc2 for customized fit-PC2 kernel or config-2.6.28-16-generic for generic kernel.

I also have problems to find a way to transfer Mandriva to a USB stick. Most like this is somehow coupled to the fact that there is a Mandriva on USB stick product out there.

BTW; Compiz works very well on the Fit-PC2 with Mandriva
