No ebuilds here. I'm running Fedora Core 2 on my EPIA, using the latest errata 
X.org provided by Red Hat, with Terry Barnaby's rpms taking care of all the 
necessary additions.

Use the 3D driver version. Its posted on Terry's pages also. Just make sure 
the AGP DMA enable setting in xorg.conf is set to disabled, or the machine 
will hard lock (defaults to off, I turned it on on my box, because it lowers 
cpu usage on mpeg2 decode, and I don't care about 3D).

No kernel patches required. I'm using FC2's 2.6.8-1.521 kernel.
