Alex Mauer did some looking into the changelog and came up with some
possibilities for when the Epia vt8601 may have actually worked.
Since the epia is _long_ overdue for some maintaince I spent a bit of
time pulling those versions and trying to make them compile for him.
Compililng old versions of V2 on a new toolchain is an exercise in frustration.
I'm going to have to pull my suggestion that someone pull versions
until they find the one that broke it. Its a non-trivial exercise.
I had to resort to forward porting the raminit code from 1176 into
the latest rev. But alas it did not work.
We need a confirmed working Linuxbios rom and a dump of the
northbridge settings to verify against.
If anyone has machines around with older toolchains ( or machines you
can install older toolchains on) we could really use some help trying
to get an older rev to compile.
If anyone has a toolchain that will compile anthing from r1176 to
r1258 then please compile a rom for the epia and send it to Alex Mauer
Please do a clean pull for each rev you try. That way we can rule out
any wierdness that my happen from a rev to rev switch.
