Still I can't get a LinuxBIOS without the additional video-bios
cat'ed at the beginning
of my LB to boot at all. That is I can't manufacture a BIOS that won't initialize the VGA. How to do a LinuxBIOS without the VGA-portion in it???
Sounds like your rom size or location info is is wrong. I don't see your config.lb posted anywhere in this thread.
post up your config.lb please.
What size is your flash?
You can do a quick check by just pre-pending a 64k file of 0xffs rather than a video bios. And see if it boots.
I don't remember if we ever patched the expansion rom code so that it verifies signatures before running the code. If not then it will crash when it runs the video bios but then you can just disable that option in your config and it should run.
