It would be sure that many guys in this list have succeeded to
build a rom image for VIA EPIA series with both freebios1 and 2.
How you did it? And what is the difference with my case?
Hello Linux BIOS developers.
I have tried to run linuxbios on VIA EPIA-C800 M/B, but failed. I tried
both freebios1 and 2 src trees, but both failed, Sigh. Anyone can help me ?
in both case, I uses filo/usb from Etherboot 5.4.0 as a payload.
I tried with both util/config/epia.conf and epia800.conf, but both failed.
epia.conf does not run. it shows weird and buggy chars. must be runaway.
epia800.conf runs. but does not load a payload. just ended up with
"bad gzip magic numbers" after had execed pc80/ide_* stuff.
I looked up why epia.conf does not run and found the difference between both
configurations. it would need these lines to be added, but why?
Just did not work. it seems not to work totally, because even VGA sync
signal does not comes. BTW, how to enable VGA debugging output?
