Install Ubuntu on DELL Latitude ST Tablet
NOTE: It’s all testing and not stable! Try at your own risk!
The GMA600 graphic hardware acceleration is not working !
You need USB-Hub, USB-Keyboard and an USB-Stick.
1.1 Download Ubuntu
First download the latest Ubuntu release (currently Ubuntu 12.04 Alpha 2).
Choose ‘precise-desktop-i386.iso’ and download this ISO.
Note: You need Ubuntu 12.04, because the Psb_gfx drivers are already integrated in this version.
1.2 Create Ubuntu USB-Installer
1.3 Start install
Connect USB-Hub to your tablet and the USB-Keyboard with the USB-Installer.
Now boot and press “F12” and boot from the USB-Stick.
Install Ubuntu as you like (or use the live system).
3. Known problems
3.1 WLAN not working
It is an ‘Atheros Wireless WLAN BT 1535C Half MiniCard’.
The chip of this WLAN card is: “Atheros AR6x02/AR6003 NWF WLAN”.
Thanks to Patrick and kvalo i get the card to work:
rmmod sdhci_pci rmmod sdhci modprobe sdhci debug_quirks=0x2 modprobe sdhci_pci
To enable it on startup edit “/etc/default/grub” and change “GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT” to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash sdhci.debug_quirks=0x20"
3.2 X Server not working
modprobe psb_gfx /etc/init.d/lightdm restart
