bios and kernel boot sequence
Hi does any body know what information is provided by BIOS to kernel during boot time . How does the BIOS provide the hardware information of the mother board to kernel? Which is the function in kernel which receives it ? I have a feeling that it as got something to do with atags. Any Links? I have gone through the links which shows layers of bootloader ... init, but they wont provide details regarding the hardware info passed by bios/bootloader to kernel during bootitme .
