Yes indeed. I had the same problem.

If you want a v3 supported board, I suggest an PCEngines Alix1C which
has a PCI slot, but the interactions with VSA might be a problem for YABEL.

OTOH, my Asus M2A-VM works in v2 (with one patch) and somewhat matching
code is in v3 and could probably be made to work in relatively short
time. It has onboard graphics with a graphics ROM inside onboard BIOS
flash. The benefit of this board is really good chipset documentation
and a very responsive chipset manufacturer.
