LinuxBios included VGA-Bios Mvpsd_15.rom from Epia-M Bios Version 1.1.13
Your VBIOS version number are different between Factory and Linuxbios. If you can somehow compare the exact versions that would be best.
The Problem is, that the newer vga_bios .16 not work with LinuxBios. If I remember right, there is no vga console coming up. It seems the newer Version includes the TV-Ship Routines (VT1622)
If you can't make Linuxbios run .16 can you get (or make) a factory bios version that is .13?
You mean, take the original bios, delete vga-bios .16 and insert vga-bios .13 instead? Well, I can try it and will see what happens :D Unfortunatly, vga .16 is smaller as .13
Unfortanetly I can not write the differences from Linuxbios, because, there are to much :D
What are the address ranges that are different?
Oh, that is a hard work, but I will have a look.
If we assume that Ver .13 dosen't do anything radically different from .16 then we should expect to only see minimal differences from the self-modify.
Somewhere in the code of .13 is a line, "Not for factory use, testing only" :D I hope it will work ;)
Are you sure that all of your shadow areas are setup correctly during the copy?
Good question, but I think so. How can I figure out, that all is make well. As I say, some pieces of vga code is on the right place, you will see it, if I write the different ranges. The rest of Linuxbios is okay and works.
