Hi Scott,

Is OpenChrome DDX working now?
Reading through Xorg.0.log, it appears OpenChrome DDX recognized the 1440 x 900
I assume you are using a window manager called twm.


Also, can you run the window manager without the "video=vesa:off vga=normal"
GRUB entry?
    Thanks to you, I did find one very minor mistake in the FP detection code.
This minor mistake confused me since if the register value displayed were true,
flat panel would not have been detected.
FP is fine; just the displayed value is from a different unrelated register.
    You will need to provide more on the issue you are having with the console.
Can you switch to the console (I assume you mean the virtual console you can
switch to in Xubuntu with Ctrl + Alt + Fx) when you are in GUI mode with twm?
    Regarding Arch Linux, do you know the OpenChrome DDX version Arch has?
I know they have Version 0.6.0, but perhaps you might be referring to an even
older version.
    Does the latest OpenChrome DDX upstream code work now with Debian 9?
As for Debian support status, I have gotten OpenChrome DDX upstream code to run
on Debian 8 and CLE266 chipset (VIA EPIA-M mainboard).
I did have to incorporate the FBDEV blacklisting for viafb, vt8623fb and
