Hi There,<br><br>Has anyone had any success with VMWare. I have partially implemented the PC87360 SIO chip which has give me serial and I can boot LinuxBIOS up to the elf payload stage. I'm trying to get the VMWare VGA to work at no avail. Has anyone else has success with this.
<br><br>I have added <br><br>default CONFIG_CONSOLE_VGA=1<br>default CONFIG_PCI_ROM_RUN=1<br><br>to the Optionslb file and adjusted the size of the ROM image by -32KB (sizeof VGA BIOS for VMWare) <br>and also added <br><br>
device pci f.0 on # VGA controller<br> chip drivers/pci/onboard<br> device pci f.0 on end<br> register "rom_address" = "0xfff80000"
<br> end<br> end<br><br>to the <a href="http://Config.lb">Config.lb</a>.<br><br>When I start VMWare with this image though it does nothing but sit there with no VGA. I have even enabled serial logging back on using CONFIG_CONSOLE_SERIAL8250 but still continue to use CONFIG_PCI_ROM_RUN but nothing then even gets written to the serial port.
<br><br>When does the VGA BIOS rom get called, at what stage?<br><br>Regards,<br>Joe<br>
