Dear coreboot folks,
I try to get KolibriOS running on the ASRock E350M1 with coreboot and
SeaBIOS payload. Keyboard and mouse do not work  probably because
KolibriOS needs PIC mode.
Was somebody successful in getting KolibriOS working on a board with
Is there an easy way to use PIC instead of APIC mode with coreboot and
SeaBIOS or is APIC mode assumed everywhere?
I looked on a couple websites (Pricewatch & Newegg) for ASUS F2A85-M,
but I only found Pros. The wiki page said to contact the mailing list
for details. I'll appreciate any guidance or shopping suggestions. On
the sites I mentioned, I can order motherboards as a part of an
I noticed that some F2A85 firmwares apparently block flashrom from
accessing the flash correctly as noted here:
I could not find any details but the error message one receives:
"ERROR: State of SpiAccessMacRomEn or SpiHostAccessRomEn prohibits full
If I read the documentation of SpiHostAccessRomEn correctly then it
should not bother us at all. It indicates it the ethernet firmware can
access the host partition of the flash chip. If however the other bit
(SpiAccessMacRomEn) is reset to 0 then we indeed have a problem.
Can someone please send me the verbose output of flashrom to confirm
which one it is? And I am also looking for testers with these boards,
because I think the abort on SpiHostAccessRomEn is a bug in flashrom.
Kind regards/Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Stefan Tauner
To manufacturers of Chromebooks,
Sorry guys, I have a chromebook myself, and its touchpad is appalling. I've
also tried the chromebooks in stores and they aren't much better.
But have no fear, Alex is here, and has the perfect recipe on how to squash
such hardware bugs early on. Following these steps, you are guaranteed to
never make this mistake again:
1. Go to your favorite bidding site
2. Enter the following search terms: "HP Pavilion M6 1035dx"
3. Find a matching listing
4. Purchase full laptop
5. When you get it, observe its touchpad
6. Notice the big, easy to hit buttons
7. Notice the surface area
8. Notice the smoothness of the surface
9. Notice the ease of moving the pointer
10. Notice the tactile feedback from the buttons
11. Notice the evenness of the force needed to engage the button
12. Notice the fatigue of repeatedly pressing the buttons (hint:there is none)
13. Play with its touchpad
14. Play some more with its touchpad
15. Now play with the Unreleased(TM) Chromebook's touchpad
16. If it seems inferior, it probably is
You'll be making perfect touchpads now, won't you?
The licensing agreement you referred to was a generic license that users
click on download. The click through license specific for FSP when you
extract it gives the user more capability... Could you check if that meets

This license still looks problematical to me. Couple that with the
fact that the Haswell MRC is still not generally available from Intel
and I'm a bit concerned.
If I build a coreboot image with FSP, am I allowed to put it on
dropbox for others to try out? Not clear at all!
And, "one backup copy"? Do the people who wrote this understand how
things in this world work?
This is progress, and Intel gets closer every time, but they're still
not there in my view.

After flashing my T60 (ATI X1400) to coreboot my laptop screen will
not come up, even after adjusting the brightness keys. I can output
video fine via DVI via a port replicator. I've heard that other ATI
users have had similar problems and I'm attaching my oprom, dmesg, and
xrandr output for anyone to have a look.
