Yesterday, I was setting up a computer with Abit KV-80 mainboard (K8M800
chipset, Socket 754).
I will be installing 9 favors of Ubuntu / Lubuntu going all the way back to
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, and I will also be installing Athlon 64 soon so that I can do
testing against x86-64 (AMD64) instruction set (I currently have a particular
version of Sempron that does not support x86-64 instruction set, so I need to
replace this with Athlon 64.).
I know from experience that that the OpenChrome source code on the anonymous
Git repository does not compile without errors on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, but it
compiles fine with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (and Lubuntu 10.04) or later.
It probably something to do with ABI version, etc. as to why it does not
    I need to make slight changes to the patch I posted a few days ago
unrelated to your issue, and create another patch that incorporates Benno's
patch, but also completely rewrites VIASave and VIARestore functions in
After that, I can start learning how memory allocation is being done, so that
hopefully it can lead to a fix for the bug you have reported.
