Yes, I know that, I have rebuilt the kernel before I do the debug and
you mail, including the "make bzImage" So the patch should have worked
if it can.

OK, I see, I will continue the debug this afternoon or this night when
colleague CFLi is able to share that motherboard.

Yes, I know a little about it. My manager LHHsu explained it to me
He also told me: In 792 Windows driver, if we need the 792 information,
will switch the multiplexer to enable 792 chip, after we get the
from 792, we must switch it back as soon as possible, otherwise some of
other parts of the motherboard will be disabled.
I think this is the problem we meet now. :-(
Can we try to use the method in 792 Windows driver for reference?

Do you mean that the mail I forwarded on 2005-03-09 from ASUS(in HTML
does NOT contain the enough information?
Then need I continue contact ASUS for their help? If you still need
their help,
I think we may continue ask them.
