Known Issues

RAM

  • Using 2 512 MB DIMMs I got 756 MB of usable RAM (as opposed to 881 with the vendor BIOS.
  • With only 1 512 MB DIMM the system wouldn't boot.

SATA

  • Sometimes the link seems slow. It doesn't happen every boot. If it happens, SeaBios needs a long time to load grub. Also, the devicenodes in /dev are not in the right order according to the ports on the board. There are also the following messages during boot:
ata2: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata2: COMRESET failed (errno=-16)
ata2: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata2: COMRESET failed (errno=-16)
ata2: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata2: COMRESET failed (errno=-16)
ata2: limiting SATA link speed to 1.5 Gbps
ata2: link is slow to respond, please be patient (ready=0)
ata2: COMRESET failed (errno=-16)
Apart from the slowness all 5 ports seemed to work.
  • If the above error didn't occur all 5 ports seemed to work flawlessly.

Onboard VGA

  • In regard to the vendor BIOS the output numbers were switched. DVI-0 (vendor BIOS) was named HDMI-0 using coreboot.
  • Both VGA and DVI output worked.
