Where to find freebios2 info?

Thanks for the quick response!

I suspected that you'd moved away from patching the kernel due to the
lack of a patch directory under the freebios2 tree.

I have a TYAN S2885 system on my desk running SUSE 9.0 for x86-64.  So
the tools are pretty much latest-n-greatest.  But after checking out the
latest sources I am getting the following error message(s):

/home/jmiller/freebios2/src/southbridge/amd/amd8111/amd8111_lpc.c: In
function `lpc_init':
warning: implicit declaration of function `isa_dma_init'
/home/jmiller/freebios2/src/southbridge/amd/amd8111/amd8111_lpc.c: At
top level:
error: `walk_static_devices' undeclared here (not in a function)
error: initializer element is not constant
error: (near initialization for `lpc_ops.scan_bus')
make[1]: *** [amd8111_lpc.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [fallback-rom] Error 1

It looks like I picked up unfinished changes.  Is there a list of tags
that can be used to check out a stable set of sources?  I want to try
and familiarize myself with LinuxBIOS on the TYAN board before jumping
headlong into our project.

no real kernel patches needed any more. We use FILO and it brings up the

IDE just fine, etherboot works well too. 

Go to freebios.sourceforge.net to find the source tree. 

To check it out:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/freebios login 
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/freebios co
