Intel Classmate

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recently bought a Classmate Convertible PC (NL1), in case you have never heard of it, it is a tablet netbook. The specs are as follows:


Processor Intel Atom N270 1.60GHz

Memory 1GB DDR2-533 (1 DIMM)

North bridge Intel 945GSE

South bridge Intel ICH7M

Graphics Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950

Display 8.9" ITO touch screen with SWGA (1024x600) resolution and LED backlight

Storage 4200RPM 60GB 1.8" Samsung SpinPoint ZIF

Audio Stereo HD audio via Realtek ALC269 codec

Expansion slots 1 SDHC

Communications 802.11n Wi-Fi via Ralink RT3070 (USB)

Input devices Water-resistant keyboard

Touchpad with vertical scroll zone

Camera 1.3-megapixel rotating webcam

Dimensions 9.5" x 8.2" x 1.1" (241 x 209 x 28 mm)

Weight 2.8 lbs (1.25 kg)

Battery 4-cell Li-Ion 4800mAh


I used iAtkos S3 DVD to install and pretty much everything is working, this is the configuration I used:


Bootloader: Using anVAL bootloader (chamaleon doesn't work with this graphic card)

BootOptions: 32bit, GraphicEnabler

Kernel: mach_atom

Sound: VoodooHDA



Laptop Hardware: Battery, Card reader

Video: GMA950 27AE

Wireless: Ralink RT2870

Wired: Nothing, seems there is an official driver here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downlo...p;GetDown=false



But there are 2 things that I cant get them to work:

Touchscreen and Screen rotation.


Touchscreen I've tried with several drivers but I cant get them to see the panel. It turns out that pretty much any resistive touch panel uses a variation of the same drivers, and there are other people that report success with their touch screen. But so far, all I can get is the driver to recognize the click but not the position.


Screen Rotation: I don't have the option in the display prefpane, and I have no idea how to force it or enable it.


Can anybody help me to get these working?


Thank you.
