    Phoronix: AMD Gets Back To Working On The Geode Linux Driver

    Good news for folks with geode based thinclients, OLPC and whatnot.
    This driver has been broken for some time.

    Does this driver also support the older Cyrix MediaGX processors? The info floating around the interblag seems somewhat contradictory on this point.

    Is AMD still doing Geodes (with emb. GPU)? Not sure if they gave away all that Geode stuff. Anyone having infos on that?
