Luckily, this is bound to change in some time. http://linux.via.com.tw/support/downloadFiles.action
Oh wait, they already uploaded the binaries for CX700M for a couple distros, I gotta try them up! *hopes they'll work for the CX700M2 chipset the Zonbu Desktop has*EDIT 1:
I got the Ubuntu 8.04 binaries, since I use the unstable Debian branch (which is what Ubuntu is based on IIRC) and they installed and worked out of the box! The installation process sets your xorg.conf
file up automatically with the proper driver and lots of Modelines and sets your screen resolution to 1024x768, but that can be easily modified. I'm going to try some videos or OpenGL apps to see if they work properly.EDIT 2:
Hrmph... mixed results.
Bad news is I tried TORCS (racing sim) and it worked, but the warning messages said there was no direct rendering context so the performance was *terrible*
Good news is I could play the 720p DivX video linked here
very smoothly if not at full 30fps speed.
Overall, it's an improvement on what we had. I'll keep testing and come here with better results if I get any.
