I am going to buy CPU and memory for board M2V-MX_SE with S3 support.
According to Ruldof, the CPU with core stepping BH-G1, DH-G2 and BH-G2
might support S3.
I am considering to buy AMD Sempron 64 LE-1300, and its core stepping is
DH-G2. How do you think? Following is the link of this CPU
Another question is about the RAM. What is size of RAM that you would
suggest to use? The goal is to make sure S3 would work.
I would appreciate any precious suggestions and comments.
Here is a patch to get Asus M4A78-EM supported and booting Linux.
Files attached are:
* Boot log with the patches applied.
* Board-specific patch for SVN 6139
* Resend of Myles Watson's patch for AMD Northbridge, because the
original did not work for me without manual editing. It is also needed
for booting Linux.
Before applying the patch, the board directory should be created with
% svn cp src/mainboard/asus/m4a785-m src/mainboard/asus/m4a78-em
