    Phoronix: How To Reverse Engineer A Motherboard BIOS

    Since being let go by Novell last year where he worked on the RadeonHD Linux graphics driver and X.Org support within SuSE Linux, Luc Verhaegen has continued work on his VIA Unichrome DDX driver as well as other X.Org code and he has also become involved with the CoreBoot project that aims to create a free software BIOS for most chipsets and motherboards on the market. Luc has worked on support for flashing the BIOS on ATI graphics cards, native VGA text mode support, and other work to help the CoreBoot project. Today at FOSDEM in Brussels, Luc Verhaegen is about to give a talk on reverse engineering a motherboard BIOS.

    I hate this kind of hypocrisy in the open source community... Someone who repeatedly speaks up for open source software and community now refuses requests to make some content accessible with open source software -- even though he won't be making any money with it. So, why?

    Even more sad, this is not just Phoronix either, I was shocked to find that the linux.conf.au live stream used Silverlight! Many other conferences have published their videos in proprietary Flash or WMV formats.

    OK then why not use one of the many video download plugins available and play it in your preferred player? I assume you already have the supported codec support in your system since you already use the youtube script.

    Thanks in advance.
    Flashrom and Coreboot share many of the same people, which is why I suggested posting to those lists. If you're looking for some help with modifying the ASUS BIOS, there's several forums on the net that deal with bios and motherboard hacking- notebook review is the only one that's coming to mind right now.

    I haven't searched for your problem, but if your board+BIOS has an artificial limitation, there's a good chance someone's documented it and how to get around it.
    Sorry I can't be of more help.
