Sister unit, 1215P is not that nice.
Has anyone been able to get the ION2 video card working on the 1215N with Ubuntu? I can only get Intel working, which is fine, but I would really like to use the HDMI out to connect to an external display.

Also, do you have a reference for the ACPI calls to make to disable ION2 if there's no way to get it working? Do I need to install a driver to do that?

Thanks.
