Thread: LInuxBIOS anyone?
May 15th, 2002, 06:42 AM #1
I got my little PCChips 810LMR that is fully supported by LinuxBIOS and wouldn't mind flashing it at all. However I wouldn't mind some first hand experience with LinuxBIOS before I do so
So has anybody ever used it?

I've been tempted, but haven't tried it yet.How do you set this laser printer to stun??

May 15th, 2002, 01:53 PM #4LinuxBIOS is an Open Source project aimed at replacing the normal BIOS with a little bit of hardware initialization and a compressed Linux kernel that can be booted from a cold start.I dreamt that a large eagle circled the room three times and then got into bed with me and took all the blankets.

this would probably be a good question for peter m he seems to be the resident pcchips expert"the chief cause of problems is solutions!"

Only a few boards are supported? :-/ I was looking forward to trying it on my FIC PA-2013...

i wish my whole kernel were on the BIOS - shure i would need a 32 MB to accomadate the modules but what the heyOdds are very good there are several spelling mistakes in this post.

Wow pbharris your /lib/modules/kernel-version is 32MB???? How big is your kernel?

Looks like it could be cool for specific embeded style projects... but can't really see the point for a normal worstation or server.
& my /lib/modules/2.4.18 is 3.7 megI dreamt that a large eagle circled the room three times and then got into bed with me and took all the blankets.

I was curious though, and since I have the hardware.... it's not a permanent thing.
my /lib/modules/2.4.18-ZpreeMP30 is 2.1MB, kernel is 735KB (hey, gotta have SCSI/IDE/ReiserFS compiled in)

hi othoes - well my kernel (vmlinuz) is about 550 k - i am not sure about the modules, i was pulling the 32 MB out of my head. a 16 might do it, but it would be nice to be able to ahve the option to boot 2 kernels from it anyway - i'll look when i get home
and 5.3 MB for my modules
