(sorry about that. my san.rr.com
isp has been deactivated in favor of
the Linux based speakeasy.net
(BTW. I can send a beginning hexdump/edit of the bios chip for
verification that it is being burned properly. )
I've tried smartcore-p5/ & l440bx/ and on each boot, the 440bx box still
acts like it can't find any bios (ie black screen, some minimal drive
activity, nothing on ttyS1, etc)
From what has been briefed to me, the DOC MIL chip will
mimic a standard
flash DIP and doesn't need docipl(?) -- docipl is needed in
order to use
nftl to install something like a root partition on the chip?
I've also tried flashing the builds to a standard DIP 2Mb/256kb flash
(even though I know it doesn't fit :-).
One thing I will note tho, I do have to use openbios/devbios to burn the
standard AMTEL 32pin DIP Flash as for some reason linux mtd will fail to
recognize these chips (even after I unshadow flash to the chipset by
hacking devbios module to *not* unshadow after being unloaded.
I do know that openbios/devbios is flashing properly as I mistakenly
flashed my original manuf bios flash chip and then had to re-flash it
and then flash another chip for backup incase it failed. Amazingly both
chips worked and both had good copies of the manuf. bios on them. ;-)
