you may take a look at 'repos/dde_linux/run/'.

That said, the intermediate outcome of the current discussion is rather
disappointing from my point of view as you ignored important parts of
Christian's Helmuth's posting (such as providing the output of lspci),
which would have helped us to better understand the situation and
possibly improve Genode. By merely attempting to side-step issues
("change tracks"), there is hardly any chance to learn from the issue at
hand and, thereby, no benefit for the community at large.
