Parabola GNU/Linux
Trisquel 5.5 Brigantia

works, but without 3D acceleration
free driver used:
viafb
Description:

The old insertion with Trisquel 5.5 says it doesn't work, but it may have changed over time. On Parabola with the libre kernel the via driver is missing so it doesn't work except for the framebuffer console but i will do more tests with a different distro to make sure.
