We have developed - basically a clone of the DB800 Amd Geode LX800
We have an LX800, CS5536, SST04 LPC Flash (512KB) and a compact flash
card - 1GB.
The system is booting Ubuntu 6.10 using a commercial BIOS.
I have downloaded the corebios and wish to get it running on our board.
I have been able to download it, configured with FILO and its almost
What I want it to do is boot into the GRUB sector of the compact flash
card and then allow grub to let me select what linux kernel/etc to boot.
When corebios loads FILO, filo says "mounting FAT" and it cannot find
our grub sectors/etc on the compact flash card. Shouldn't this be EXT2
that it mounts.
I have adjusted the configs for FILO to attempt to remove FAT, but it
still keeps coming up. Seems like I a missing something pretty simple.
Can anyone point me to a reference on how to configure the latest
corebios/FILO package to boot into an IDE compact flash (the compact
flash card is right on the IDE bus of the CS5536).
Also - doesn't have to be FILO. I saw etherboot can boot to IDE as well.
I just want a BIOS so I can alter the memory timings/etc and jump to my
compact flash card for booting. So whatever is easiest.
