I would like to use the BIOS in my old lap-top, Toshiba Satellite 320CDS,
but I wasn't able to find if it is supported or not.
Do some know this or know how can I find out?
This site got some info related to this notebook specs:
By the way, I use _Debian_Linux_4.0_ and have 96MB RAM.
Thanks in advance
Thanks to Carl-Daniel's help in debugging my keyboard problems, it seems we
found what's wrong. During boot log:
PNP: 002e.8 missing set_resources
PNP: 002e.9 missing set_resources
PNP: 002e.a missing set_resources
ERROR: PNP: 002e.1 60 io size: 0x0000000008 not assigned
ERROR: PNP: 002e.1 70 irq size: 0x0000000001 not assigned
[ similar errors follow ]
(note: keyboard is 2e.a)
Sounds like an internal LB error rather than hardware state; I gave a look
at static.c and tried to figure out what code should using those structs for
initialisation, but couldn't find anything.
Someone could please enlighten me? (full logs + patch attached)

Both should be a config option of course, as this is heavily dependent
on the respective setup you use.

Which could change with GRUB2, I think there were some plans at least.

This may be a stupid question, but is it possible to put kexec in the
ROM, too? Yes, it consumes some space, but I'm curious if it would be
