linux:install:fedora-aod270

Fedora 17 on Acer Aspire One D270

…did get it working with the following kernel parameters:

  • mem=1920mb (reserves more memory space to graphics card)
  • SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 (avoids error “Font True not found”)
  • acpi_backlight=vendor (allows backlight brightness adjustement)
  • acpi_osi=Linux

and this:

  1. The X11 driver gma500_gfx1) was conflicting with the VESA driver. Uninstalling xorg-x11-drv-vesa-* did solve the problem. Now xrandr does also show the HDMI line and the monitor setup was successful.
  2. There is a bug in a Linux kernel 3.8 and 3.9 module regarding the SD card reader (Realtek RTS5209). But compiling and installing Linux kernel 3.10 solves the problem.
1)
The Acer Aspire One D270 is based on an Intel GMA3650 graphics chipset.
