There should be a way to put the 8601a specific stuff in
northbridge/via/8601a, and try and keep vga generic (legacy) register
in a central place (eg, pc80/). This worked well for stpc and sis630;
of the code is common even though the chips are radically different,
both match well to legacy VGA. There are also changes to
since it currently doesn't move the cursor or use the correct memory
The only reason this hasn't been integrated into linuxbios codebase at
point is partly lack of interest (I think) in this group, since most
serial console, and partly that I have been off on other things lately.
All of my projects use the vga console, so as I use various integrated
chipsets, I will be adding vga for each. Until this gets into the
base, anyone that wants the code just send me an email. It's all gpl
I am working on getting the sis 530 working which on my Arbor PIA-671
board has a 630 3D AGP card I would mainly like to use for my project.
So if you can send me the code to enable the VGA stuff that would be
great. I do have the datasheet for the board and its video controller
so I may be able to find the "special chip specific" stuff from looking
at your code.
Thanks in advance,
