At the Advanced Computing Lab of Los Alamos National Lab, we added some code to jump to the kernel, display error messages, and set up the interrupts. We modified OpenBIOS 0.0.1, so 0.0.2 may have already done some of that.
I haven't compared the two versions actually. I know that 0.0.2 has some interrupt setup code.
Our goal is to get a linux kernel and a shell onto our Intel L440GX+ BIOS so we can network boot, etc. We also have code to boot Linux from Linux, so we won't use the bootstrap kernel as the final kernel.
Very cool. It shouldn't be too hard to hook network booting into OpenBIOS either, if you wanted to go in that direction.
This probably won't help you, but it may. We'll publish our code as soon as it is a little more finalized. If you want I can send you what we have so far.
Please do. I can look over what you guys have now and figure out how to best integrate it into the current codebase. When your code is more finalized, it will take less time to integrate it into OpenBIOS.
(I'm collecting patches to OpenBIOS 0.0.2, as I noted in another message to the list)
