I have been working (on and off) for about 2 weeks now and I'm still stuck in 800x600...
I followed this guide as well as i could but when I got to:
sudo apt-get install xorg-emgd emgd-dkms
E: Unable to locate package xorg-emgd E: Unable to locate package emgd-dkms
I'm fairly new to Linux and i have tried to make the switch before. I feel like I'm really making headway this time though and I"m starting to like the way things work in Linux. (this is just so you understand my knowledge of Linux better)
Any help is REALLY appreciated even if its just blind suggestions or other helpful hints, I know the GMA500 is a bit of a... well people don't seem to like it that much...
if you need/ want any additional info just ask. :)
after trying the solution to a similar post:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gma500/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install poulsbo-config poulsbo-driver-2d poulsbo-driver-3d
The update step gives me:
W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/gma500/ppa/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/source/Sources 404 Not Found W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/gma500/ppa/ubuntu/dists/oneiric/main/binary-i386/Packages 404 Not Found E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
and the install step gives me:
E: Unable to locate package poulsbo-config E: Unable to locate package poulsbo-driver-2d E: Unable to locate package poulsbo-driver-3d
I am beginning to think I am missing something simpler than I think in these instructions... (the "duplicate" post links to the same instructions I stated preciously don't work)
