You start stardust, then let the installer reflash your bios :P I think ill do something about this, ill make a one-for-all bios that lets you launch linux and install from one bios.

Hi all guys
And big thanx shallax for your new web site.

I have also 128 Mo of Ram, and I boot with last cromwell, 2.21, but the 128 Mo isn't recognised :(, because it's old release.

I have contact Mist of xbox-linux Team, and he said me, we can compile xbe with last Cromwell CVS, 1 or 2 week, for that linux recognise extra ram.

can you try upgrade you xbe please ? :D

I don't know if you remember me, big display probleme, but the cromwell correct this :)

Did somebody get the 128 MB to work??
I flashed with 800 128MB bin but with top i only get the "normal" 58MB.
Also I´ve tried the 128MB xbe but also no result.
With memchecker.xbe it tests the 128MB o.K.

Any ideas?

best regards

Okay, I have tested all Cromwell and Xromwell, and as Craxx, they rum well :D.

but on four, I have display problem :?

I boot on Cromwell or Wromwell, but I have not display !! :shock:
And when I press A, for to boot on gentoox, I see you picture and gentoox load !! :?

do you have the same probleme Craxx ?
I use RGB scart cable.

except, the 128 Mo is always recognised :D

Question : what is the difference with 640 and 800 ? and why I don't can change the resolution ?
And why I must boot with only pad, also there is USB probleme ??

(this last points is also in Cromwell 2.21dev ;) )

Veru good job Shallax


ps: can you explain how to compile Cromwell and Xromweel please ? :) Thx

Compiling cromwell is hard to explain.. but put simply.. extract the tarball, then run "make" and the BIOS appears in ./image/

Ill try one more thing with the Cromwell BIOS to see if i can get the screen back :P
