Yes. So I would just use linuxbios to boot and then use etherboot to boot the linuxbios I want (which would then load the kernal?) The etherboot I see being used is an elf loader. Is linuxbios compiled in elf format?
Ah. I misread your desires. So no I was incorrect. Its not done.
Thats a interesting idea but I think its going to run into some issues. Many of the chipset registers can only be played with after reset.
getting linuxbios build as an elf shouldn't be too hard but splitting linuxbios up into core "only do once" and "repeatable" sections may be more difficult.
I'm not guru enough with the ld magic to know so someone else will have to comment.
