Package: xserver-xorg-video-siliconmotion
Version: 1:1.7.3-2

After using the patch to xorg-server detailed in #594684
<http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=594684> and the
include xorg.conf for help, X works on the attached screen (LVDS) of the
Lemote Yeeloong. However, the VGA output under X does not work. Further,
under a virtual console the VGA output does work.

details several patches including
I guess that 'CRT' in the name is referring to external monitor output
(the VGA). I am not sure of the correctness of the patch, it could
certainly do with being reformatted. But applying the patch results in
VGA output under X working as expected.
