This can be moved to low priority and dropped from R1 milestone as it's not a requirement, just a "would be nice to have".

For future reference, here's a link to the AMD datasheet for the Geode, which has the video built into the processor.

Same problem, but with a GX chipset instead of an LX chipset:

Device in question is a DT Research WebDT 366 webpad ( Attached `listdev' output for device.

Forgot to mention: currently testing under R1 Alpha 1.

Given the extremely small user base for a Geode gpu, and that the gpu would require a brand new driver (radeon nor radeon_hd would cover it), I am going to bump this one down as far as I can.

While it would be nice to have, there are much more common video cards that need the love.

The x driver is xf86-video-geode

Nice one to have, especially since I have a Compaq Clipper in storage. :-)

More nobly, the chip is used in the One Laptop Per Child project, and it would be cool to have some of them running Haiku instead of Linux.

Ah wait, it was the Audrey that used a Geode. Anyhow, nice chip.
