Guest harcrow Posted September 8, 2008 Report Share Posted September 8, 2008 Hello - I have a via epia MII machine with the CLE266 unichrome graphics driver. My goal with this machine was to install linux, boot it from the compact flash, and use it as a media pc. I started with a DSL linux distribution and had to flash my bios in order to get the CF boot to work, but I have done that and that all is fine. The next problem is getting the correct drivers for the via graphics card that I have. I cannot seem to get the source from VIA and to download what I need and get it compiled is somewhat problematic. I have it working, but the graphics are horrible. VIA does provide some pre-built drivers but not for the distribution and version that I am running. So, that leads me here. I need a smaller linux distribution that can boot from a CF card ( ~200 MB ) and can provide support for my graphics card. I did download and burn a liveCD of the Jordaan version and that looks promising. Does anyone here have any experience running this on VIA hardware or boot from a CF card? Thanks Harry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
