Yet another attempt to tame the Intel Atom - at least with Porteus 4.0 ...
I found this gem at the Archlinux wiki about Syslinux - specifically the troubleshooting sections about having a teeny cursor in the upper left hand corner during boot, and some of my Atoms will hang right there. The troubleshooting section is about 2/3 of the way down:
So what I'm running with now as a cheatcode is
vga=current quiet splash
In addition to the usual intel_idle.max_cstate=1. Seems that vga=current is the key.
We'll see, but this may be promising.
Here you can post about your various experiences with PC hardware. You can also post about hardware that is not compatible with the linux kernel or not recommended for use with Porteus.
