Hi , I have been trying to get linuxbios working on TUSL2-C ( 815ep chipset
for half a year already. By using the newest patch from heechul, my
still refuse to boot when trying to load the kernel. It should be a RAM init
although it seems to be working until trying to load the etherboot ide_disk:
* Serial Presence Detect (in heechul's patch) doesn't work on
smbus cannot detect correct value of RAM dimensions.
** There is a continuous beep sound (not stated in award beep
ambulance :) ) if using linuxbios or no bios is
* Must use aflash.exe to flash the bios. /dev/bios and uniflash
although the flash rom is recognized.
Hence, from point 2 and 3 and some comments from uniflash
I am suspecting some hardware protection from ASUS which prevent
modification in bios by individual. I hope I am wrong and some of
point that out.
I have the matsonic ms7057 (815ep chipset ) linuxbios source from
which should be newer than the one in linuxbios source tree ( this
has RAM dimension auto detect using SPD registers).
By using this raminit.inc, three things have to be changed :
configure_buffsc (no autodetect)
configure_smrcomp (no autodetect)
#define SMB_IO_BASE 0x1000 (IO address may vary)
It should work on ms7057 and ga-6oxe.
Hope this info can help somebody in future. thx.
