FBSD and Nikolas ..
I think I have it scoped out more or less .. from a net bsd site .. this 0x7205
requires a UniChrome Device .. absent in Xorg 6.7 and 6.8 .. NO VIAble driver
in FreeBSD 5.4 w/ X.org .. NOR .. with FreeSBIE 1.1 X.O 6.7 vs 6.8 ...
Doubt if much QA went into X.org for FreeBSD vs the multitude of drivers for
less common cards/chips ..
Only VIAble fixes are another board or getting rid of X.org .. IT IS UNCLEAR
what that requires to lose X.org and revert to XFree86_4 like my working Knoppix
+ product VIATECH VT8378_IG 0x7205 VT8378 KM400 UniChrome
