On the graphics adapter - I tweaked the detection for VIA adapters myself based on information from users of VIA chipsets and also stuff from the Openchrome documentation. If 3D acceleration is disabled for your chip that's most likely because there isn't a working driver with 3D acceleration support available, at least to my knowledge.

Could you please run this command as root, so I can know exactly which Unichrome chip your board has?

lspcidrake -v | grep VGA

also, if you have been successful in getting 3D acceleration on other distributions, could you let me know how? Thanks!
