There is no SMM/VSA support at all, this means that anything relying on it won't work. What this means is that Audio won't work.
Other than that everything works fine, IDE in PIO mode, the PCI bus. </cut'n'paste>
Has anyone tried to load the SMM/VSA as a binary using the Xpressloader source with LinuxBIOS to have SMM/VSA working?
I've looked at it but did not follow it further. Seems like VSA1 has some 16bit interface, but i am not sure about vsa2. so basically one would have to find a proper place during system bootup and just jump into the binary, taking the structure of vsa binaries into regard. any hints on known pitfalls? Christer?
