    first step is to try and find a proprietary driver from sylvania.
    please open terminal and type:
    Code:
    lspci -v
    then, copy and paste the results back here.

    GNET 13001 - Working Distribution

    I don't know if I am the last person on the planet using the GNET 13001, but I have gotten it to work really well under Ubuntu.

    This is what works for me.

    1. Use Ubuntu 11.04, Natty (Do NOT use 12.04 - Sound Broken). Pretty much everything works under 11.04 right out of the box.

    2. Because 11.04 is not currently supported, you have to edit "/etc/apt/sources.list" to point to old-releases to install additional software.

    Do a web search for "APT Repository for Old Ubuntu Releases"

    One of the search results, probably the first one, will be a short article describing how to point to the old Dapper releases. Just use "natty" in place of "dapper."

    3. Watching a video will cause a crash unless you pick very specific settings. Here's what to do:

    * Use VLC instead of any other video player. Use "sudo apt-get install vlc" to get the proper one for the 11.04 distribution.

    * You must change the video settings to shut off hardware acceleration and choose X11 video output. Here's how to do it:

    Starting from the VLC top menu pick - Tools - Preferences - Video

    UNcheck - Accelerated video output (Overlay)

    Just below that in the Output spinner choose - X11 video output (XCB)

    * (OPTIONAL STEP) Because I could not figure out how to point apt-get to the medibuntu sources, I got a copy of the w32codecs for Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and installed them manually.

    I use the little netbook to watch movies when I travel. Works like a charm, and if someone steals it, I haven't lost much.
