DRAM SIZING Could intel_sis630ram.S work on your M/B, does it get corrrect value for ALL three DIMM with Signle/Double sided DRAM ??
SiS' status: yes, all three DIMM and single/double sided DRAM combination ares O.K.
On my motherboard it can size the first slot. Any attempt to size other slots results in a trap, and the arium hangs.
Keyboard Can your keybord controller works properly ?? have you monitor port 0x60 to see the scan code you type on keyboard ??
SiS' status: yes, we got correct scan code every time we press the keyboard.
We're good on the keyboard.
Frame Buffer Device Can you use SiSFB or MatroxFB to show the message on monitor ?? If the answer is yes, which Frame Buffer Device are you using ?? How and What is the EXACT procedure to do it ??
SiS' status: no, we can not make SiSFB work under current romimage. We are pushing VGA BIOS group very hard to release the code ASAP. For the moment, we are considering using Matrox FB instead of SiSFB, if you are succeeded in setting up MatroxFB. (We will be back on SiS FB once VGA BIOS provide enough information).
Some luck on this end with the sisfb, I'm doing more testing this morning.
PCI configuration (PCI IDE and etc.) Can you init the PCI devices ?? especially PCI IDE ?? since we need PCI IDE to mount root filesystem.
I can init IDE. That works well: I can mount root. Unfortunately during my last test my FLASH finally died, and I am waiting for a new set of FLASH to arrive (probably monday :-( )
CVS configureation What is the progression you and Jeff made in putting LinuxBIOS on FreeBIOS CVS ??
today, I hope.
Other things Do you have another thing you want to know ?? What else do you want to sync with us ??
I ought to move to the new mainboard ASAP, since this one seems to have problems. Also, my TAP-SA is in for the socket 370, so I am ready.
