I'm looking for a good/adequate tool for LinuxBIOS software
integration/development for dual Opteron mainboards.
The American Arium has recently added AMD64 support to their ECM-50
emulator. I've heard that the ECM-50 is $11K plus $4K for AMD64
module and $1.5K for support for a total of $16.5K. I've looked for
other AMD64 emulators, but didn't find any. Are there cheaper AMD64
Something less than an in-circuit emulator may suffice. Maybe a bus
analyzer that simply filters and records bus signals on the mainboard.
The bus analyzed could be the processor bus, PCI bus, etc.
I'm looking for at least a POST card. Maybe a POST card with extra
I suppose even a processor adapter that allows processor pins to be
probed with a logic analyzer might do as well.
What hardware tools (emulators, bus analyzers, POST card, etc.) would
you recommend for LinuxBIOS integration/development for dual Opteron
Thank you Ron, YH and David for your comments concerning Nvidia CK8-04
support in LinuxBIOS! It was/is most appreciated!
