I'm trying to get X11 (of any type) running on an EPIA EN-15000G:
I don't need MPEG decoding, or hardware accelleration (though that'd be
nice), but I'd like to be able to run X on the console at 1600x1200x24bit...
The native X doesn't recognize the chipset.
The pkgsrc modular-xorg xf86-video-via doesn't recognize the chipset
The 'safer' drivers at: http://unichrome.sourceforge.net/
don't support the chipset.
The bleeding-edge drivers at:
svn co http://svn.openchrome.org/svn/trunk openchrome
cause the machine to lockup hard.
I don't mind tinkering about to see if I can solve this, but I'd need
some pointers on how I might start debugging this, since I can't even
break into ddb via the serial port after the lockup.
