Hello, Looks like an i830 chipset laptop. I would love to see coreboot
running on an i830 chipset laptop. I wrote the i830 code (with lots of help
from everyone here:-) ) and would be glad to help in any way that I can.
Looks like the first thing is to get your SMSC LPC47N252 SuperIO working.
Most of the SMSC LPC47* are closely related from a programming stand point.
I think everything else is supported by coreboot. The only concerns I have
is with the graphics (LCD) and battery charging. See:
If your willing to give it a go, I woud be glad to support you any way I
can. If you want some base code to start with you can use the RCA RM4100
(i830 based set-top-box). Hope that helps.
