Hi there,

We have a couple of Tyan S2881 boxes that we want to run linuxbios on.

I checked out the latest SVN repository (revision 2117), but get compile
errors for the S2881 tree.

This is the case on Debian testing/unstable with GCC 3.4.5 20051015
(prerelease) (Debian 3.4.4-9) and GCC 4.0.2 (Debian 4.0.2-2), as well as on
Ubuntu Breezy with GCC 4.0.2 20050808 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.0.1-4ubuntu9).

There are a lot more warnings when compiling with GCC 4, but it always dies
on this:

  LinuxBIOSv2/src/cpu/amd/car/disable_cache_as_ram.c: At top level:
  LinuxBIOSv2/src/cpu/amd/car/disable_cache_as_ram.c:3: error:
    syntax error before 'volatile'

Am I missing a dependency, or is this a bug?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
