Hi Alan,

Mmm no luck so far ;(
I've checked that the bios is the latest available and there doesn't seem to
be any type of chipset software patch or upgrade.
What I have done is tried compiling the kernel for AMD K6/2, K6/3, .....this
seems to work nicely and it's stable.
It seems that I'll have to give the "Athlon" support a miss for now. ;(
How does one go about obtaining a Transmeta chip ? I'm really keen to try it
;-) ...anyways probably just a fantasy for now.

Thanks for the help anyways and keep up the fantastic work !

Play with ideas see what you find out. You might strike lucky. So far nobody
else has
