H Len.

Thanks for the links.

The chip I'm working with is the  P4M900, which is pretty 
new Via, so the Xorg via deb driver doesn't support it.

The docs with the source code didn't work for me as the 
openchrome effort is Fedora centric.

I was hoping that m-a or at least ./configure & make would 
be possible to use, but no.

Thanks anyway.
