[LinuxBIOS] MB1030 / 3036 VGA comes up :D

We have an older board (from before I came to be with AMD) which was built with a GXm, CS5530, and NSC 97317 SIO.   I can pull preferred register settings from a document if that would help.  

Our preferred settings for this platform were:

BC_XMAP_1 = 0x1300C060
BC_XMAP_2 = 0x09999999
BC_XMAP_3 = 0x99****99 (* = don't care)

Are you loading an SMM handler on this platform?

Do you have an account here?


There are tools there for DOS and linux that can read various things. 
Its not obvious to me if the XMAP registers are in the list of thingsn they can read.

If not then you will have to study the LinuxBIOS source and the gx1 datasheet to figure out how to write a small program that can read them.
