This appears to be a build error. These are usually due to toolset
quirks. What OS, compiler, compiler version, ld version are you
using? Also, please include the exact commands you ran and the full
It looks like you patched seabios - make sure you can build a clean
seabios without any patcheds first.
Please also try "make distclean ; make" to verify that the repo is in
a clean state before building.
Since I'm a legal owner of the first generation of Mac Mini with a
regular Snow Leopard license,I'm trying to follow this tutorial with
the goal to virtualize Mac Os X with KVM on the second part of the
hard disk where I have installed Linux Ubuntu. You can find the guide
The problem arises when I have to install/configure the seabios
package. This is what happens :
Compiling whole program out/ccode16.o
Compiling to assembler out/asm-offsets.s
Generating offset file out/asm-offsets.h
Compiling (16bit) out/romlayout.o
Building ld scripts
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "./tools/layoutrom.py", line 669, in
File "./tools/layoutrom.py", line 633, in main
info16 = parseObjDump(infile16, '16')
File "./tools/layoutrom.py", line 564, in parseObjDump
relocsection = sectionmap[sectionname]

Can someone help me to fix this error ? thanks.
I'm doing my own OS and i'm booting it from USB uhci. When it boots and it
arrives to the system code i want reading and writing from USB.
First of all i take the usb.c, util.c, usb.h, usb_uhci.c, usb_uhci.h,
pci.c, pci.h, pciinit.c,... and put it into my sources and i compile it but
i need the romlayout.S that depends directly from bios's idt and not from
the idt from my OS.
How can i do that?
Do i need to call pci_setup() or something in the initialization of my own
Are there some documentation to know how are the files connected and what
do the functions do?

The names were decided by Microsoft, not by me.

Yeah, this can work.

Then I suggest adding that information to the wiki:
when that feature is in the stable release.
I suggest adding the Open Firmware paths for devices SeaBIOS can boot
(example: /pci@i0cf8/usb@12,2/usb-*@4) to the boot selection screen. I
to buy a serial adapter and a null modem just to get that string. That
is important since you cannot modify the default boot sequence without
