Sony VGN P11Z
« on: January 27, 2010, 09:05:45 AM »
Hey,
i want to install TC on my Sony VGN P11Z, did anyone else it? How is it about drivers for the Intel Atom Z520 platform?

Best regards

The Poulsbo graphics (GMA 500, in near all of the Atom Z's) aren't really recommended for any linux use. Other than that, things should be smooth.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I have some Z510 boards on order (should be here this week or next). From what I have seen about the GMA500 you should be fine as long as you don't use 3d. So maybe not good as a gaming box but certainly useful as a server.

I'll know more when I get my hands on a board and start playing with it  :)

No, with 1,3 GHz it's no gaming mashine :D I just want to surf in the internet when I'm not at home.
