What do you need exactly? A GPLed silicon motion driver? An accelerated smi driver?

For GPL issue, I think SMI/lemote has given the permission. For acceleration, we have old working version. Recently we will also look at porting to new version.

enough to express myself:

Let me introduce first: I am working in a project in Venezuela, which
have the goal of manufacturing, developing and mantaining the Lemote
Yeelong in our continent. For this we have contacted FSF asking the
complete endorsenment of gNewSense in this hardware. They answered the
main issue to solve before, is one concerning the SiliconMotion driver
(video). So I started to search for experts here in Venezuela to
research and solve this.

Maybe we need to recompile the Silicon Motion Driver to the gNewSense
Lemote Yeelong. There is an existing effort in this [1] but the page is
in a very difficult language and the package appears to crash or to not
work properly in some reeboot situation.

Any help, advice or information will be helpful.

Thanks. I hope you can help us constructing a free world :-)
