What is the current status with openbios?
not sure. I can tell you the status of linuxbios.
Have you got all that VGA stuff sorted out?
no. Haven't had time.
Is linux bootable yet?
well, depends on what you mean. Yes, I'm booting it fine. BUT: interrupts from the timer are not happening, and that is crucial to further progress. I need to know the magic to get the APIC and timer ints to go. (oh yeah I just got back from 10 days away, so things slowed down)
what can i do to help? --- i dont quite know enough assembler / C to add support for my own motherboard yet :)
Figure out how to get ints turned on. This is the current big problem.
-- will openbios work with an AMD K5 or K6 CPU?
It should work just fine.
Other status is that SiS is now an active supporter, they have sent me bios source and have offered hardware and support. Their specific interest is linuxbios.
sorry for so many questions.
I am grateful for these questions and your offer of support. Don't be sorry!
thanks very much
