Some of the mixups in those pictures are embarassing! oh well, bear with me,
I will clean them up this weekend and export a new set. And, I'll try to add
some captions ... and yes, the ones in the middle (# 48 or so) are not
Hamburg, they are from Spain .... oops. If you can, play the .avi files at
the end. That model railroad in Hamburg is just amazing.
note how we camped out in the luxurious Baseler Hof hotel each evening after
dinner until about 2 am, leather chairs, cat 5 cable, big fancy painting,
beer, nice oak table (you can almost see it under all our geek toys),
soldering irons, Toblerone, wireless gateway (to avoid the 18 Euro charge
for wireless!), laptops .... at 130 am the last day we were there the night
manager yelled at us about it -- said we should have rented a meeting room.
Oh well, we were leaving at that point ...
But, the Baseler Hof is really a nice hotel. And, the meeting rooms in the
old warehouse district were perfect, as were the lunches. Yes, the last
lunch really included candle-lit tables. Stefan did a great job.
And, that pay phone -- yes, it is a crashed BIOS. We have to have at least
one Factory BIOS Failure picture in every LinuxBIOS meeting ... we just
stumbled across that crashed phone on a walk.
you may note that I have moved my linuxbios life to gmail. I am still at
LANL, but gmail.com is much easier to deal with when on travel, which is
frequent for me nowadays.
so it is rminnich A T the gmail . com
> then how about the lines for 7z uncompress code?
Working on it. 7z decompressor is really small (8 kb compiled on
i386) and written in ISO C (1884 lines of code), but compressor is
big and written in C++.
Does it still make sense to try to use 7z?
How much RAM is the decompressor allowed to use?
I suppose that anybody here would know the name of Robson,
Intel's HDD cache on flash mem. But, somebody dont know
the detail of it?
I have an interest in the spec about logical format of the flash mems.
I mean, they would have parition table and something like FAT table or
and what is the format?
Why I want to know it? Because, I guess we can use the flash for putting
Linux BIOS there. And it is better that Linux BIOS partition can co-exist
Robson cache partition. This is the reason I am curious about the logical
If this is possible, we will not have to worry about the space shortage
issue ( 256KB is small for linux bios) anymore. And it is also easy
to "multi-boot" both normal BIOS and Linux BIOS, like ADLO.

After our discussion in the "Download payload from console via XMODEM"
thread, I posted these patches. There was no response, possibly due to
the LinuxBIOS conference.
Here they are again in case they were overlooked the first time
around, in increasing order of invasiveness:
The first patch renames CONFIG_COMPRESSED_ROM_STREAM* and
The second one renames the other CONFIG_*_STREAM options.
The third one goes whole-hog and replaces every remaining instance of
"stream" with "payload" in code, filenames and directory names. The
diff is pretty huge due to the file renaming.
