Thankyou for the patch, just about to apply it, but

what to apply it to. I'm not familiar with how you guys name the freebios
tree. Ie on the first line it refers to freebios.orig/src/cpu/k7/ then
freebios/src/cpu/k7 - do i need two copies of the freebios source tree? (one
CVS-downloaded tree left "untouched" and one copy of that tree with the
patch applied. Perhaps it would be worth a little documentation on this
just change to your freebios directory and
"patch -p1 < /path/to/patch.diff".
Also, i'm planning to compile on the 2.4.7 Kernel
(as per the K7SEM howto),
Is there now a more preferred kernel version?
There are patches for 2.4.17 and/or 2.4.19. Look in your source tree (see
And finally, what distro of linux do you guys use for
your compilation? I
tried Suse 8.1, but that failed. Now i'm unsing an aged Redhat 7.2. Can i
use the new Suse 8.2 instead. Thought id ask first rather than try it only
to fail.....again :-)
SuSE 8.0 works fine for me.
