Just wanted to report that it's working fine for me with an Asus X101CH (N2600 with GMA 36000). Using xf86-video-fbdev.

Yup.* Introducing split -sna and -uxa accel methods: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … cd5ac33f4f* unifying them: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit … 0f21bfb8ccwith some "interesting" changes to the PKGBUILD in between ;PIf OP run 'pacman -Syu xf86-video-intel' and has no ignored package in pacman.conf he should be fine now.
Since updating my archlinux system today, my netbook will no longer use opengl rendering for KDE window effects. I tried downgrading xf86-video-intel, but that did not help.Can it have something to do with the switch to systemd?Or something else?
Found it, it's due to the xf86-video-intel-virtual-crtc packageI have a W530, in order to use dual monitors I need to install that package (bumblebee etc)See here http://blog.gordin.de/post/optimus-guideTo sum upxf86-video-intel-virtual-crtc package -> screen blank -> no lockscreen, no applicationsno driver -> fine (lockcsreen)xf86-video-intel -> fine (lockscreen)xf86-video-intel-
Try them both out. Depending on your usage xf86-video-ati should be good enough. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Catalyst willl get you set up with fglrx in no time. Just make sure to use the right aur pkg for your video card.I for one use fglrx cause my kids like their games.
