This should have been sent to x11@ instead.

xf86-video-intel29 is not supported.  It was used for a short time when
gem/kms was still developed.  I have no idea what graphics card your
atom comes with, it has integrated graphics, but you have to find out
which exact version it is.  In general, for newer intel graphics cards,
the best is to use the new xorg distribution, that should give you
hardware acceleration.  Otherwise you can try xf86-video-intel in the
old xorg distribution, but the risk is that it will revert back to using
vesa instead.
