I am trying to get the graphic interface running for a new 12.04 install on an embedded PC. There is no separate graphic card but the onboard graphic chip is an SM722. Is there a driver in ubuntu for this chip? Is there anywhere else I can find this driver? My web searches have turned up empty.

If there is support for this chip in 12.04 how do I tell the OS about this chip? Is there an option at boot time?

There should be support for it in linux in general. My searching turned up this bug from about a year ago: ... not Ubuntu but it tells me there's OSS running that chipset – RobotHumans May 24 '12 at 2:54
This is a Silicon Motion Lynx 3DM+ controller, FYI, if you want to google more. – izx May 24 '12 at 2:57
Kept googling and I see that there are major bugs with it recently, but it works with vesa in arch – RobotHumans May 24 '12 at 3:22
