I found a patch for the xf86-video-geode driver:
  http://blog.gmane.org/gmane.comp.freedesktop.xorg.drivers.geode/month=20150301

Happy to report, the video (and keyboard) on my $15 (USD) ebay special
are working now. :-)


Still, the xf86-video-vesa and xf86-video-fbdev are failing on every
machine I've tried.
