I need to get the kernel that I am building for my Geode sc1200
(including the linuxbios code) small enough to fit on a 256K eeprom. Is
this possible? My first attempt resulted in vmlinux of 626K. After
compiling linuxBIOS it gave my a rominage of 448K. Am I missing
something? I tried to strip as much out of the kernel as possible.
** Proprietary **
We have SC2200 board from National and being trying with ExpressROM biose code given by National.
Will it be advisable to boot the board with LinuxBios and still use all the pheripheral interfaces and displays.
Thanx and regards
I have KEIL C cross compiler for ATMEL 8051 8-bit
for windowz ..
I found that SDCC is a free c cross compiler .
I want to know if some other c cross compilers
are available for free for that buggy windows
and the robust linux ...
Especially for ATMEL 8051 .

My attempt at a sis530 port seems to be coming along. I am almost
ready to compile and try this thing. I am though confused or unclear as
to the order that stuff needs to happen. I assume that eventually I
initialize RAM and then superIO and all that, what I don't understand
is the basic order of execution, this happens and then this needs to
and then this ... etc. I have been using as a guide the sis540 chipset
and stuff like that to get my configuration files together and as
examples, but well since the code for stuff is spread accross trees,
what happens when I make one of these projects? Does it take the
mainboard.c file first, then the raminit? I'm not sure if I am being as
clear as possible, but if anyone has a clue what I'm asking about it
For example, the raminit and the chipset specific code is usually
assembly, whereas the mainboard.c is well, C. So where does that
raminit come into play, and how is it called, IS it called like a
function, same goes for the chipset initialization (I guess chip init
is tied pretty closely with the ram init stuff but well what happens in
what order is what I could use some pointers on....

I have a problem about boot from network. When I choose the option, the
screen shows: Searching for server (DHCP)... When 20 retries completed,
it shows: ....No Server Found. I can confirm the package is sent and the
server has received it. Who could tell me why?
I would like to know if someone is working on the STPC port. I am woking
with a STPC Elite custom board (I have a development board too), and I
would like to test the linuxbios on it.

linuxbios support DOC millennium MD2800-D08 well. but
now m-sys distribute its new product called MD2802-D08
millennium module using the DIP assembly. the m-sys
documentation shows MD2800-D08 and MD2802-D08 are
when i use md2802-D08 , docprobe can't find it.
need help from someone who has the experience using

This isn't a linuxbios problem, but there are many people lurking here who
have the knowledge to help (I think...)
I've got a backplane system, nothing fancy: 7 ISA and 9 PCI.
5 of the 7 PCI are behind a DEC 21150 PCI-PCI bridge.
behind the bridge I have physically installed three RTL8139s, a QuickNet
PhoneJACK and a WMP11. Linux was compiled to use direct access for PCI
(tried "any" setting and booted with pci=biosirq too)
only the WMP11 isn't showing up in lspci. lspci -H1 shows it though.
I used to have an Orinoco gold in a PLX-based adaptor and it worked just fine
in that same slot.
Can anyone help me get this detected so the module can be loaded? I think the
bridge is working just fine, since I can access 4 of the 5 devices, but I'm
at a loss as to why a direct-pci-accessing kernel cannot find the device, but
an lspci -H1 (direct hardware accessing lspci) can.
dmesg doesn't show anything interesting at all that I can find, but I've
attached it and my lspci dumps.

No private requests, I am frequently busy doing other things,
like tonight and I refuse to become a bottleneck...
Maybe someone wants to help?
