Does anyone know if IPMI works under LinuxBIOS? AFAIK, there is a Linux
driver patch but dunno if it still works under LinuxBIOS.

Hi. On http://www.linuxbios.org/developer/download/index.html you show
the commands to checkout linuxbioss from sourceforge cvs:
this is wrong and "cvs.sourceforge.net" should be used (or you won't be
able to download anything).
Does anyone think it is possible the offer the user a choice of
commandline parameters. I would like to use the serial console, or
something else convienient, to allow the user to choose commandline1 or
commandline2. One of them mounts root over nfs, the other from the hard
drive. I guess this would be a simplified boot loader such as lilo or
grub. Unfortunately this 'boot loader' must reside in the flash chip,
since my hard drive will initially be completely blank.
When I was reading a document about the APM, it is mentioned that we
need to have BIOS support to have APM on the machine. Also it is
mentioned that if the BIOS is not properly supported it will lead the
APM to crash the system.
So I want to know about APM support in the case of LINUXBIOS.
Can any one help me out?
Also yesterday I have downloaded the latest code of the Linuxbios. Still
now I was working with old source base from sourceforge.net. After
compiling with the new code, I found some new file like c_start.s and
what I have to do with these file?
I am working with a Real Time Devices PC-104
standard system equipped with a '486DX processor,
and. In order to decrease boot time to our OS
(which is QNX/Neutrino) I would like to eliminate
the BIOS, replacing it with my own code which does
minimal initialization, and then loads the OS
immediately (the OS is not dependent on BIOS
calls). If anyone who has done this sort of thing
before is willing to spend a few minutes on the telephone
with me, I'd be most appreciative. Roy Minnich
of LANL appears willing, but he is out for a number
P.S. please reply direct.

Hi, i finally succeeded burning the DoC, with linuxbios and my custom
kernel, loading the root file system on hda1.. it works almost perfect,
but i can't get keyboard working, I searched on the web, but i found
nothing useful (i made what Antony Stone wrote on his guide, but still
don't work), I don't Know if is problem of the kernel or my linuxbios
Any idea how can i fix it?
There are attached the linuxbios and kernel configs files, if you want
to take a look, please tell me if anything is missing or are something
PD: i'm working with a pcchips 810lmr

Yes, there are motherboards using the 440bx chipset in the tree.

Dig into the code and have fun.
The primary discussion list is linuxbios(a)clustermatic.org
I am trying to get an embedded pc board to run with linuxbios. The board is an arbor emcore6352 and is (almost) identical to the technoland sbc710 from the CVS tree. The onboard ethernet is an intel chipset however, and the cpu is a low power pentium iii.
* Linuxbios is coming up and so is the kernel. The pirq table however, is not successfully copied to 0xf0000, or so the debuging message tells me. Ethernet and usb both have irq zero assigned in linux ...
Any tips where I can start looking?
* The other thing , is that the board has it's sdram (128mb) soldered on the pcb, and there's no serial eeprom to read the stuff that usually comes from the smbus.
So far the only way to get linuxbios to come up is to plug in extra sdram(in an sodimm socket) that DOES have the usual serial eeprom to do spd.
I have the datasheets of the sdram components, so I guess it's a matter of hardcoding the information about those chips somewhere? Could you please give me a hint as to where would be the best place to insert this code into the source tree?
Or any useful links about (basics) of sdram initialization, since I am a total newbie with this stuff.
