I bought that one too and it works with the Nouveau driver in Parabola. 
But it will hang with SupertuxCart. It will not render with the GPU for 
Blender either.

My embeded Intel card works much better:
$ lspci -s 00:02.0 -v
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series 
Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA 
	Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 360b
	Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 44
	Memory at 90000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
	Memory at 80000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
	I/O ports at 5110 [size=8]
