Thank you for testing our driver.

KMS is not ready yet for the XO. I hope to have it going in the next few

That is strange. Do you have X logs or is it the silent error type.

Yeah I know about that one. I need to implement the crtc shadow functions.
Also newer VIA hardware supports hardwware rotation. I was determine to 
push out a release instead of piling in another item to the changes. If it 
is critical for you guys I can look into implementing it.

Much closer to being the xorg driver for XO :-)
