So I ordered 6 of the flash chips and got a PLCC removal tool. I'm
ready to start getting this working on my machine. I am still unclear
as to the steps to proceed in order to do that. I have looked at the
tiara source, there seems to be quite a bit there so that is promising.
Where I become confused is where to put my code and such, how to break
it up. Looking at making a Config file, it says to set the target (for
example winfast) does that mean I need to make my own for arbor (maker
of this SBC)? and then all the mainboard/model stuff as well. How do I
know where everything is to go? Are there any docs relating to how to
proceed to get all the devices setup and placement of files. There
seems to be quite a few directories with nothing in them and that is
confusing as well. I have the output of lspci -vvvv and the datasheet
for the sis530 that is the chipset on this board. I don't see anything
similar to the superio chips that seem to be related to the other sis
So basically I'm wondering:
1) What are the basic things I need to implement / create to get
linuxbios up and compiled etc..
2) Is there anything that better explains the directory/file structure
of the source tree?
a) if there isn't, then how can I determine what to put where?
I think that is it for now. Thanks for the help so far, this is
exciting, I hope to be able to help the project out by getting
LinuxBIOS on one more box, albeit a somewhat older one (but good for
embedded development). :)
