I can't see the package in there neither but I found this package : http://packages.yoctoproject.org/detail?pkgname=xf86-video-fbdev. Have you tried with that? If you don't I suggest you to extract the files in you PC and use a Sdcard to pass the files to the board. In the INSTALL and README files you will find the instructions to install it.
I am kind off being a little lazy to rebuild the image for Galileo and was looking for a way to install xf86-video-fbdev driver on my board. When I try installing using http://xorg.freedesktop.org/releases/individual/driver/xf86-video-fbdev-0.4.4.tar.bz2 , I get error saying "No package found: xorg-server" (need xorg-server.pc file) .
I am assuming this xorg-server.pc file can be obtained by installing xorg-server package (as done for other i386 , amd architectures) . But no such package exists for i586.
Does anyone have an idea if there is some other package which can provide xorg-server.pc file.
Has anyone tried installing "xf86-video-fbdev" driver on Galileo?
Yes the xf86-video-fbdev package is available in the repo. But the Packages file (http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/iotdk/i586/Packages) does not list the
"Package : xf86-video-fbdev"
Can you help me if there is a way to install .ipk file directly?
