--- Comment #9 from Scott <shep971 at centurylink.net> ---
The ease of switching openchrome-git <=> openchrome in Arch32, is offset by the
relatively small community/resources. It also introduces an extra level of
complexity with systemd - nVidia/amdgpu users need to generate an initramfs
that has the video module. 

The notebook dual-boots Arch32/NetBSD 7.1.2.  If you're not aware, NetBSD
provides a monolithic xorg that still uses openchrome 0.3.3 and a modular xorg.
 Modular xf86-video-openchrome is based on the latest release and does not bulk
build (I have not tried myself).

NetBSD 7.1.2 is running fairly well and I suspect that Debian 8/Devuan testing
will too.

What I'm mulling over is how much effort to put into future use.  The wikipedia
entry for Via indicates that they are actively developing cpu's capable of
competing with AMD for the Chinese market.  Interestingly, the Deepin package
list does not even provide an openchrome driver

"•  xserver-common 2:1.19.3-2deepin 
  •  xserver-xorg 1:7.7+19 
  •  xserver-xorg-core 2:1.19.3-2deepin

  •  xserver-xorg-video-vesa 1:2.3.4-1+b2

IMHO, The Deepin developers should hire you after they get the latest driver
spec's from Via ;)
