Thanks for your reply. I ve got a DB1500 board which is supported, so
right now I m trying to build the kernel for the same. However, my next
task is to map the VIA southbridge and I m not very sure of what this
I do not have the datasheet for the Southbridge. Please point me in a
direction where I can start. Should I be looking for hardware addresses
in the datasheet or for the type of interrupts generated by different
Thanks and Regards,
