Overview

  • LX-800 AMD CPU with 500MHz core clock
  • CS5536AD part of the chipset, AMD companion device
  • W83627 Super I/O
  • RTL8100C Realtec network controller
  • RTL8100C Realtec network controller
  • PM49FL004 PLCC32 512kiB flash memory to boot (in a socket)
  • ALC203 AC97 AD/DA


Building filo

FILO config for IEI LX-800:

# !!! NOTE !!!
# Do NOT add spaces or comments at the end of option lines.
# It confuses some versions of make.
# Use grub instead of autoboot? USE_GRUB = 0
# Image filename for automatic boot and optional command line parameter AUTOBOOT_FILE = "hdb1:/boot/bzImage syscrtc=/dev/hdb1 initrd=hdb1:/boot/initrd.gz clocksource=pit ide-delay=2 hda=none ide1=noprobe console=tty0 quiet"
# Time in second before booting AUTOBOOT_FILE AUTOBOOT_DELAY = 1
# Driver for hard disk, CompactFlash, and CD-ROM on IDE bus IDE_DISK = 1
# Serial console SERIAL_CONSOLE = 1 SERIAL_IOBASE = 0x3f8 # if SERIAL_SPEED is commented out, the speed will not be changed. #SERIAL_SPEED = 115200
# Filesystems FSYS_EXT2FS = 1 # i386 options
# Loader for standard Linux kernel image, a.k.a. /vmlinuz LINUX_LOADER = 1
# Boot FILO from Multiboot loader (eg. GRUB) #MULTIBOOT_IMAGE = 1

Building coreboot

$ cd targets
$ ./buildtarget iei/lx-800-r10
$ cd iei/lx-800-r10/lx-800-r10
$ LANG=C make

The LANG=C is only for those users that uses a localised system.
