The Poulbos driver has also been an amazing source of frustration for me;
moreover, you've gotten further than I have. Since acquiring this netbook
around two months ago, I have been scouring the net looking for a solution
all in vain. I've posted it about in the comment section of Adam
Williamson's blog: 


As well as here:

without success. The worst is that an Amazon customer did get F11 working on
this very model:


As I detailed in exhaustive detail in all of the above posts, in any of the
distros that support Poulbos -- Ubuntu 9.04, F11, Mandriva 2010 -- the
screen grays out at the point X is loaded. Nothing in the xorg or system
logs give any indication of what is going wrong. The thing boots but nothing
is displayed.

At the moment, I am running this Eee with VESA 800x600, which is obviously
deeply unsatisfactory. I love the size/performance of this laptop, but
basically, from a Linux perspective, it appears to be a lemon; I would have
sold it already on eBay except that I deleted Windows the partition, and I
have no idea how to reinstall it.

At this point I honestly feel like tossing this POS in the nearest canal,
and starting over with the one of the Intel 950-based netbooks.
