Hey all,

im working at the on the i810, trying to fix the onboard-vga to work.

removing the commented code of the vga-related stuff resulted with the pci
device to be displayed in the pci list on coreboot, but in a disabled state,
and (as promised...) with the boot not executing the payload. complete log
can be shown here : http://pastebin.com/m20e821eb

a few rough patches to my target and i82810/raminit.c and now the device is
shown as enabled and i even get the information about the VGA allocating
resources :

Allocating VGA resource PCI: 00:01.0
Setting PCI_BRIDGE_CTL_VGA for bridge PCI_DOMAIN: 0000
Setting PCI_BRIDGE_CTL_VGA for bridge Root Device

but the payload still wont execute (it is seems to be loaded though) and
ofcourse, no VGA output, only serial, with a dead boot hanging...
complete log can be shown here : http://pastebin.com/m248a41ea

i'd appreciate any clues/assistance in the matter.

Elia Yehuda.
