I've been fighting the same HPMC on my C180; I used the same XF86Config-4
file that works perfectly on the 715/100 I just got rid of, same versions
of everythig, etc. Mine has the onboard video, but I didn't think to look
into what it actually is.

Is there a simple way to tell what kind of video is in these? I'm at work,
so I don't have the machine in front of me to play with, testing commands,
but does something simple like 'fbset -i' tell you what's in there? Or
perhaps the appropriate line in dmesg says 'Visualize EG' or something?
