You might start by reading this -

It is possible to get this chip set working, I have no idea if any slackers have it going. It will run under Ubuntu, I know that is not your distro of choice.

Here is a link that can help.

There is a lot more on

Here is a link on how to compile the driver for Debain, and its derivatives.

I have also seen posts saying Mandriva will run out of the box on the GMA500 chip set. I have a HP Mini 210, and it came with a standard Intel chip set. Best of luck with it.

is complicate
Thank you camorri for you answer
The articles are very interesting, unfortunately left INTEL GMA500. I tried to compile following your information you sent me, but I could not compile the driver (try only once). I will try again this weekend and I tell her I succeeded.
