I have compiled the linuxbios for my pcchips 787cl+, it works fine
but i have problems with the serial console. The output works, but
input is broken. :( I can see the linux 'login: ' prompt, but I can't
input anything. If I boot the same kernel with the same parameters
but with the original motherboard's BIOS, I do not have any problems
with the serial console. What should I do to fix my problem?
Another problem I have here is that 'reboot' doesn't work. It just
hangs. I had to use acpi_reset instead, but I don't think that's a
proper way to go.
Speaking of acpi_reset... there are some words in the source code
about the ACPI watchdog timer. What's that? Can that thing be used as
a system watchdog to reboot it when it hangs?
