Stepan already commit it for me, I will fix it in one day.
I will submit svn diff for that in issue track for reference....

I made some modification which make Tyan boards compile again. But the
last time I try it to boot on s2881, it failed.
Currently we have some other things to do in LANL so probably we won't
have time in the near future.
Is it O.K. to just commit the "built but not working" code to the SVN
so YhLu can proceed?

I've completed testing EPIA-M video subsystem. Both with native AwardBIOS and with LX2.
Tests were performed with "x11perf -a -repeat 2". Video depth - 16 bit, 'via'-driver from unichrome project. No major differences at first site.
Should Barker's howto be expanded?
Sincerely, Anton Borisov
I would like to use LinuxBIOS on an embedded Geode GX1 platform.
The board is an Kontron ETX-mgx, and is has the following parts on board:
* CPU: Geode GX1 266 MHz
* Southbridge: CS5530A
* Superio: Winbond W83977F:
IDE, floppy, 2x serial, parallel port
* Phoenix BIOS 4.0 in a Am29F040B 512kx8 flash chip (TSOP package)
* 64 MB PCI 133 DIMM
* Compact flash slot
* USB controller (Compaq ZFMicor Chipset)
* Ethernet: Davicom DM9102AE
I want to use LinuxBIOS with FILO to boot a linux kernel from the IDE
My idea is to piggyback an empty flash chip on top of the BIOS flash
chip, and then use a switch to select the original
BIOS or a newly flashed one.
I am new on this list, and would appreciate some help to get this
project on the road!
My question is:
What would be the best way to get this started?
Can I use LinuxBIOSv1 or LinuxBIOSv2?
LinuxBIOSv2 seems newer, but it seems to lack support for the W83977F.
Thanks for any help!
