Subject: [LinuxBIOS] LinuxBIOS and VMWare
Has anyone had any success with VMWare. I have partially implemented
the PC87360 SIO chip which has give me serial and I can boot LinuxBIOS
up to the elf payload stage. I'm trying to get the VMWare VGA to work
at no avail. Has anyone else has success with this.
I have added
to the Optionslb file and adjusted the size of the ROM image by -32KB
(sizeof VGA BIOS for VMWare)
and also added
device pci f.0 on # VGA controller
device pci f.0 on end
register "rom_address" = "0xfff80000"
to the Config.lb.
When I start VMWare with this image though it does nothing but sit there
with no VGA. I have even enabled serial logging back on using
CONFIG_CONSOLE_SERIAL8250 but still continue to use CONFIG_PCI_ROM_RUN
but nothing then even gets written to the serial port.
When does the VGA BIOS rom get called, at what stage?
