There's been a new openchrome driver available for a few weeks now: http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx...0&SubCatID=169
My question is regarding the notorious K8M800 & K8N800 chipsets, particularly on the 'supported' distros; Debian 3.1r4 (kernel 2.6.8-2-386)/4.0/4.0r1, Fedora Core Linux 4/5/6, Mandriva Linux 2007.0/2007.1, openSUSE Linux 10.2 and Ubuntu Desktop 6.10/7.04.
Have you got reliable 3D support?
I no longer have that laptop, but the new owner is still suffering. If it works I'll go round & put Debian on it for them.
