Whats the way to go here? Use the stuff with the nice OLPC graphics?
Is that generically usable?
buildrom needs tuning in a lot of places to be non-OLPC it seemed last
time I looked at it.
Is there some way to get it use vesafb (without bios callbacks, see
x86_64 version) rather than a native chipset (ie. have graphics mode
enabled before starting linux)
Recompiling your bios if you change the graphics card is a little clumsy
