Notes

First of all brightness controls don`t work. You can adjust brightness in ubuntu with this command: sudo setpci -s “00:02.0” F4.B=CC (replace CC with a value from 00 to FF).

Resolution

You can get a resolution of 1024×600 by using a kernel patch which is found here: http://blog.uninstall.it/tag/gma3600/

     BEWARE: if you use the kernel patch you will have resuming from suspend problems. Screen gets jumbled colors.
     Other than that problem it seems to work ok.
     

I was able to run BRRip movies without any problems. 3D acceleration doesn`t work yet though.

Other

Battery life is ok 6-8 hours.

Headphones jack works out of the box.

I would rate it with 8/10 for linux functionality.

HEy I am using NC110 and It's working great with kali. Your details are correct and true. Thanks for the information.

To get resume from hibernate working (on 3.2.39 at least):

1. You need to ensure that the vesafb module is not loaded. This
can be done by adding gma500_gfx to the modules loaded by the
initrd. (Add it to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules)

2. Switch on and off the display using “xrandr” after thaw. (Add the
following script as /etc/pm/sleep.d/99redraw_after_thaw)

#!/bin/sh
case "$1" in
 thaw)
 xrandr --output LVDS-0 --off
 xrandr --output VGA-0 --off
 xrandr --output DVI-0 --off
 xrandr --output LVDS-0 --auto
 ;;
esac
exit 0
