OK so now we have a BIOS which boots your computer fully into the operating system, and depending upon your needs that may be all that you want. There are other areas which I consider ‘hackish’, in particular the setting up of the cardbus bridge. April 14, The “Digg” Case. Please login for creating product ratings. The FADT mostly describes the power management unit, and is declared in fadt. The code is a bit clunky in as much as it allocates fixed addresses for memory windows – which ought to be allocated by the pci detection code, but I can’t figure out how to make this happen.

I have tried to restrict any changes to epia-m specific files, however there are a few generic files that I have had to make some changes in, particularly in the ACPI, vga bios and mtrr areas. This howto assumes the use of FILO. I wasn’t quite sure where to put it in the eia tree, but I guessed it was more like a southbridge than anything else.
There seems to be no support or drivers for non-standard resolutions, which would benefit widescreen TVs. This has meant some minor changes in mtrr.

If all went well, then you should find a file ‘coreboot. In case this is not legally possible: I have tried to restrict any changes to epia-m specific files, however there are a few generic files that I have had to make some changes in, particularly in the ACPI, vga bios and mtrr areas. However it is currently implemented as a zeroed table. Get Linux installed on your corebootv2 machine. However it is currently implemented as a zeroed table. Epis take a quick look at the spec sheet.
Having failed to understand the intricacies of the pci detection and configuration mechanism, I have resorted to setting up the bridge manually, and with fixed memory resources, as annotated in the code.
Make sure that you have compiled a kernel bzImage, and copied it to the file location you identified in the FILO Config file. Views Read View source View history. July 21, The “Supra-Server”. Copy this file to somewhere which the corebootv2 makefile can easily find it. My fix is to include the version 1 i initialisation code, and that allows the bios to finish.
The fact vgx the board conforms to a Mini-ITX standard is helpful, too, since a number of case manufacturers already support the tiny form factor. The configuration as set up by the buildtarget process will create a coreboot file which is exactly bytes long, which is exactly 64K bytes short of what needs to go into the K flash rom.

VIA’s EPIA-M platform – The Tech Report – Page 2
I have created a new superio device for the vt, which sets up the hardware monitor, com ports, lpt and fdc. This page was last modified on 5 Aprilat It is possible to vgaa this behaviour to provide the full capabilities of the original BIOS, which includes different sleep levels and wake from these levels e;ia certain events.
BIOS text is blurred and too bright – though still usable. A vga bios image.
The ACPI code seems to be fully functional – giving software off and reset, as well as providing power button click events the whole reason I wrote this!!
This step creates the appropriate makefiles and build directories for the epia-m. Some people are finding that the bios initialisation code is crashing eia a random interrupt vector.
