Asus 330 ION ...issues or ignorance ? edit IGNORANCE :)
« on: September 09, 2009, 11:06:31 am »
Hi all,
EDIT..........have just reinstalled and all seems ok so far....wiki page when fully setup

I've just received an AT3N7A-I  (brilliant delvery service from Aria.co.uk BTW) and I'm trying  to use it as a Hybrid on 0810..latest   20090908

FYI,       there is no speaker connector / motherboard sound during boot/av wizard setup
           I struggled  with video drivers, (av wizard set it up as vesa,) until I managed to get 185.14 x from Avenard .....NB   webadmin /media dir. / hardware accel => opengl
...........bluetooth onboard not operational as yet
............no com header on board

          As yet no sound  ,but am about to upgrade alsa to .20 (nb handbook appears to be wrong ..stereo output is black connector, middle left hand on rear plate)

.......so far it's taken 11 solid hours.....But  most of that was my ignorance of cli



Issues.? .1/   normal menu bar but no TV ..Video...Audio ..Manage Drives  buttons,
                  But- a floor plan button on every category   (ui2 overlay)
                  cd/dvd's play  ok with sound (!) on insertion of disk
        
             2/ getting from kde to orbiter still suffers from timeout problem, could the fix be setup as the default from install ?

             3/ could alsa .20/avenard improvements be rolled in as  part of install ?  (is there a blow by blow howto anywhere for alsa ? )

             4/ if I leave firefox running in kde, I then can't access webadmin from orbiter and vice versa

             5/ i've set synaptic as per avenard website and  (even tho I somehow managed to install 185.xx from there )  but get errors  and can't update their package lists,

      ....so except for  1/  , my few problems are minor , I'm sure anyone with a little skill would have this board  running in no time at all,


any advice would be appreciated,

regards,
Ian

Hi

I have the ASROCK 330 ION as MD's
Besides for my core that is f@#ked does not want to add any md any more.
this works create after I installed the latest Nvidia drivers and also Alsa 1.0.20.
I can't get the HDMI audio working but the video is hdmi and my sound is on stereo..
I know this is not helping you at all, but maybe an option to start with the drivers..
Chris

Are you talking about HDMI audio or analog?

This mobo looks to be a pretty standard Atom/Ion board...so I cant see that it will pose any major problems under 0710 apart from the usual ones of the NIC and the X config etc. We have had reports though that the on-heatsink fan is a little noisy though...so that might be a factor in your decision to use this over another Atom/Ion board.

All the best
