Great. I'll have reason to do some linuxbios
hacking soon. I purchased
some GIGABYTE GA-M57SLI-S4 setups to build a Multi-TB RAID server. Parts
should arrive next week. One goes into service with stock BIOS to get
going ASAP and the other gets LB.
Ultimate plan is a LB based NAS with the only rotating media being the
SATA drives. Ward tells me there's still a bit 'o hacking to be done to
all the get all the SATA slots up.
Actually, no, all SATA slots are ok on this board (afaik); it's on the ck804
chipset that we have issues.
On this board we're still missing some interrupts on one of the PCI slots;
there's no acpi, no fan control yet, some funkiness with i2c, etc.
If I can I'd also like to upgrade
the SPI flash part to as big as the chipset will support and if thats
still not big enough to hold my kernel+rootfs then change to a USB nand
That should be interesting; count me in :) I have a couple spi boards of this
type that need to be LB'ed.
