Networking

The ethernet adapter needs the atl2 driver. The driver isn't in portage yet but an ebuild exists. I changed its version to 2.0.5 and it works fine.

Graphics

The on board card works as a framebuffer with uvesafb and Driver fbdev in xorg.conf (no dri). The page on Intel GMA has more infos as well as instructions for a non framebuffer setup. Right now I'm using Driver "intel" in xorg.conf.

Sound

Works with the ALSA-driver from portage using snd-hda-intel.

Problems

The following (probably solvable) problems exist:
