I haven't noticed problems with vr on EPIA-M, but I got audio working
under -current only and still can't get XFree going.. :-I

I'm using the box as a diskless system, so I think I'd notice network
problems if there were any.. but then, without X, I haven't been
torturing the thing all that much.  I have tried 1.6.1 and -current,
but worked OK network-wise.

What do you do to make vr act up?
