I recently installed PC-BSD 8.1 on an Asus eeepc 1101HA.
Everything worked fine except the graphics. This is actually something I expected, due to the fact that this netbook has a GMA 500 graphics chip, which is (so to speak) the worst graphics chip every built in a netbook.
In Linux the same trouble emerges, but there are some poulsbo drivers available (although they are no official drivers). The question that emerges now:
Is there any way to get the graphics working under PC-BSD ? I got for now vesa as the 'detected' graphics system which runs on 24bit and 1024x768 resolution - it is some real pain to work under these parameters.
Many thanks in advance for any hints for solving this problem (except 'buying a new netbook' or 'installing windows' ...this may solve the problem in general but not the problem of enjoying PC-BSD on this specific machine
