Hi! I'm a newbie with linuxbios (and linux for that matter).
We are in the process of creating a stripped-down (but extremely dense)
dual Opteron server. It is basically a pair of Opterons and an 8111
that has a 10/100 NIC, a pair of USB ports, and an IDE interface, along
with 4GB of RAM. We'd like to run linuxbios on it.
I have an Arima Hdma dual Opteron system I am using for development. I'd
like to start by building a linuxbios for the Arima system. I have been
able to build and run a 64-bit kernel from the Suse _64 distribution on
the Arima system successfully.
I have downloaded the latest (as of yesterday) freebios2 tree from
sourceforge.net. I went to targets and ran:
# buildtarget arima/hdama
Then I did the following:
# cd arima/hdma/hdma
It successfully made romcc, but when it tried to run it to make either
the failover or normal rom, it gets the following error:
reset_test.c:13,111: 0x1e43570 copy Internal compiler error: bad
type passed to copy
I'm probably missing some steps, or starting in the wrong place. I'd
appreciate some advice. I spent some time looking through the archives,
but did not find any definitive tutorial for the latest linuxbios
creation (although the March 2003 linux-magazine article was useful to
gain a perspective).
Any help appreciated. I've been reading the mailing list for about a
month, and I'm impressed with the progress this group has made.
