i believe koz pointed it out but i compiled up the xf86-video-driver-fbturbo
successfully, which uses the 2D acceleration available with the A20 (G2D).
i then reported that to the parabola developers... and i was really
pleasantly surprised when one of them packaged it up within a couple of
so the 2D accelerated sunxi xorg driver is now a standard part of
Parabola-ARM GNU/Linux-libre. you *don't* end up with heavy CPU load
due to "simple framebuffer".
