 * server-xorg-video-amd is in unstable, based on f.d.o's driver, but it's currently broken for the XO (as of 2008-01-16)
 * dilinger provides a package based on the one from jordan (which contains stuff required on olpc, see paragraph above for a link) at http://queued.mit.edu/~dilinger/sid/
 * Debian Lenny offers GEODE 2.10.0 which includes full XO support and makes the OLPC repository obsolete.


Using fbdev

This method doesn't provide 2D acceleration, but works with packages from the official Debian archive. Make sure xserver-xorg-video-fbdev is installed, then add the following line to the default xorg.conf:

 Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
+       Driver          "fbdev"
        Option          "UseFBDev"              "true"
