I didn't try VGA because I explicitly want a system w/o VGA. That's not
so important for QEMU, but I'd like to try things out on real hardware
Anyways, I assume you're talking about the vgabios-cirrus.bin file build
from (patched) sources by the project at http://www.nongnu.org/vgabios/?
If so, I've just downloaded version 0.6a and tried to build it, but it
fails. The failure is documented below, if anyone is interested.
vgabios-06a build failure follows:
[phs at thinkpad ~/vgabios-0.6a]$ gmake
gcc -o biossums biossums.c
biossums.c: In function 'main':
biossums.c:63: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in
