I haven't given up on my crusade to get Linux working on the DOS card in my
Mac. However, I've run into another snag.
The BIOS driver that I'm working with were written for 1.1.70. In main.c it
uses 'low_memory_start' to allocate the code and buffer space for use when
switching to real mode. However, 'low_memory_start' seems to have disappeared.
I've even looked through all the kernel changes from 1.1.70 on and found no
mention of it changing.
How does one allocate low (<1M) memory in 1.2.13?
Another question. It uses gdt and gdt for the real-mode code and data
segments. Is this going to cause a problem in the current versions of the
kernel. The 'Hackers Guide' seems to suggest it might.
