Linutop Graphical Driver
The Linutop graphical chipset is an AMD Geode LX. A free Xorg driver exists, available in a git repository.
To grab the driver, install git and run:
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-amd.git
To build it, install the xorg devel packages (-dev or -devel packages depending on the Linux distribution you use). Also install libtool, autoconf and automake, then run:
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr make make install # run this last command as root
Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy)
Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy now provides a package named xserver-xorg-video-amd which contains the graphics drivers for AMD Geode CPUs.
User Cheetah is experiencing a few problems that include machine hookups and crashes.
The AMD driver is available in the Ubuntu Universe repository. The package is called xserver-xorg-video-amd. Only an old version of the driver is available in the Edgy repository. A more recent package is available at http://gauvain.tuxfamily.org/linutop/packages.
You can grab this package and install it while Xubuntu is running on your Linutop.
Reconfigure the X server
After the driver installation, you will need to reconfigure the Xorg configuration while running Xubuntu on your Linutop. To do so, open a terminal (Applications -> System -> Terminal) and type:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Choose the "amd" driver, and use the default configuration for the other settings.
Note that the Xubuntu version shipped on the USB stick which comes with your Linutop already contains the AMD driver.
