I understand. Would someone know how to disable SMM in the VIA Pro133T chipset (VT82C596B south bridge). What I/O ports do I need to write to, and what values should I write to these ports?
Try disabling USB keyboard emulation and any unused peripherals.
I have disabled everything I could find in the BIOS. Serial and parallel ports, USB, integrated sound, APM, ACPI, booting from exotic hardware or from the network. To no avail :-(
Also google "RTAI disable SMM".
I see that they have a Linux kernel module to disable SMM in Intel chipsets. But I didn't see the equivalent for VIA chipsets.
Is this a laptop? They are plagued with SMM problems...No it is an "indutrial" motherboard. Although I don't know what makes it "industrial".One would really hope that such a device would be designed for machine control and similar RT apps and thus free of SMM...
Indeed... I wonder if VIA thinks their old chipsets were industrial-grade. Regards. - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-apps" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
