im really confused where dram configuration is being done in the
epia-m. is it in raminit.c? I thought we cannot use c code until dram
is set up.
i resorted to reading the acpi and amd bios manuals and got even more confused.
things i hate about my linux pc:
1. it takes more than a second to boot up
2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
