[coreboot] Asus M2N-E

Hi Mike,

Sorry, my last answer was very short.

As M2N-E has a RS232 port, I am using cutecom on another computer connected through RS232/serial/com port.

You could use a USB/RS232 too.

Best regards.

Hi Martin,

I just was curious about how the coreboot debugging process looks like, my experience is too small in this field. Please tell, with what hardware tools you are using a cutecom software?
^^^ sadly Ajays NET20DC is end-of-life and AMIDebug Rx is way too expensive (don't remember if it costs $500 or $5000, still a lot of money)
Please tell, are you using any of these devices? Or you made your own DIY dongle using this manual:
What your coreboot debugging setup looks like, in addition to cutecom?

wish good luck to your projects
Best regards,
Mike Banon

Ok Timothy,

Thanks a lot for your help, really appreciate.

I tried try with a dual core Athlon 64 X2 and the boot log is an exact copy of the Opteron's.

So it has something to do with the mainboard.

Hope Uwe Hermann see this.

This is probably the issue right here.  This means a coreboot developer
(preferably with access to this hardware) needs to take a look at the
stack allocation for the 0xf Opteron chips to see why coreboot is
overrunning the stack space.
