Fedora compatible? [Samsung N102S, Intel GMA 3600]
by Ron Leach
List, good morning,
Samsung have already announced they are exiting the netbook market
and, as a result, their N102S netbooks are being offered at fairly
good prices. I'd like to get one but could I check whether we know if
Fedora can support its video chipset? I'm aware that some chipsets
are problematic - and not only for Fedora.
According to this page, the video in the N102S is the Intel GMA 3600.
This video chipset may also be named 'cedarview'. I think it's quite new.
Anybody know whether Fedora will run with this chipset?

Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller
by lmick h
I'm in the process of trying to setup a Lenovo Ideapad U410 with Fedora
17. The system keeps putting the SATA drive into UDMA/100. Apparently the
system has an Intel Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI controller. I have
found next to nothing detailing Linux support for this controller. Does
anyone have experience with this?
I've done the normal steps as far as checking to make sure the BIOS is set
to AHCI and has been since I installed. When the system first boots I get
messages such as "*ata2*.*00*: *failed to enable AA*(error_mask=0x1)" a
couple times as it boots up. Probably going to open a bug report if I
can't find anything else, but I'm not sure if this is a bug or just
unsupported hardware. Any pointers in the right direction on handling this
would be appreciated.
