Linux drivers for Via Epia mainboards…

I was revamping my Epia ME6000 yesterday. Besides upgrading to the modular xorg server I learned that there is now a fork of the sourceforge Unichrome driver: openchrome. The sourceforge driver has been stripped of XvMC support (which is badly needed for ME6000 DVD playback).

What are they up to? Seens like they intend to develop a more bleeding edge version with more features … now I just have to find out how to use it with the modular X. Luckily, the two main commiters seem to be totte and ivor, which both have been quite active coding and posting in the forums in the past …
