Intel's Moblin fails on Intel Atom-based Dell Mini 12 - 02-03-2009, 10:24 AM
It's phenomenally fast in loading but then it hangs for about 10 minutes trying to
activate the graphics before it gives up and offers a command line login.
It's far from easy to login because the X server re-tries every couple of seconds
but if you do get to the login: line remember that the password is "moblin"
(without quotes of course). If you want to to any work you first have to drop
down to level 3 (with the command "init 3"), because that's the only way to
stop the X re-tries.
Now there is some noice on slashdot.org about Intel messing it up with the
chipset used in modern Atom-based netbooks, read about it here:

titled 'The "Bloody Mess" That Is Intel's Poulsbo Driver' but it doesn't help me
in anyway, so here's my question:
Has anyone successfully installed Moblin on a Dell Mini 12 ?
OK, what was the liturgy to make it work ?
