I do not believe this board supports 16GB as it is limited to 2 DDR2 slots. If anyone can find an example of it supporting 8GB DDR2 DIMMs then perhaps the SKU should be linked to the doc page.

Nicholas Chin c5ad4f2b10 docs/install/ Make note of 1440x900 panel errata
Due to an issue in libgfxinit, Latitude E6400 systems with a 1440 x 900
display panel would have garbled graphics before the OS boots. Make a
note of this issue in releases 20240504 and earlier.

Leah Rowe 20398fbec4 don't endorse specific licenses in
since canoeboot is to be gnu fsdg in spirit, and practise,
it must not openly encourage use of the MIT license, no
matter how much i love that license

in practise, most of cbmk is GPL anyway, and the upstream
projects that it uses are also GPL, so this section is
entirely redundant.

remove it.

Leah Rowe 474c952192 don't require sending patches to libreboot first
i now wish for canoeboot to be its own project, entirely
isolated from libreboot. i myself will still use my own
preferred method: submit to libreboot and patch canoeboot

however, some users may wish to send to work on canoeboot
exclusively. this is permitted, as of now. i will simply
cherry-pick those patches into libreboot, where indicated.

Leah Rowe 59b21cbc25 no
don't promote the other project

why promote a dead project? gnuboot is a dead project.
don't un-dead it by promoting it. just let it be dead.

afterall, why promote something inferior that i've already
replaced? canoeboot is inferior to libreboot, but it is *far*
superior to gnuboot.

as stated elsewhere: i refuse to continue promoting garbage.

Leah Rowe 1b9e28c3b8 extreme cleanup / grandiose gesture
make canoeboot a truly GNU FSDG compliant coreboot distro,
by removing all overly positive reference to Libreboot;
what remains is technical in nature, so as to provide
historical context since Canoeboot is a fork of Libreboot.

I've stated before that I wish to take a more neutral tone
toward the FSF, in contrast to the *coldboot war* of 2023
when GNU Boot started.

Canoeboot was heavily linking to Libreboot, even going so far
as to call itself "inferior" and tell the reader to use

From now on, Canoeboot will be maintained as though I actually
believed in FSF propoganda. I don't, but its users do. Treat
them with respect. My reason for providing Canoeboot is
precisely that I wish for such people to have a high quality
coreboot distro, much unlike the inferior *GNU Boot* project;
inferior because to this day, it's still based on very old
Libreboot, with not much changed (of any real substance)
relative to the Libreboot 20220710 release on which it forked.

In general, I've also found a lot of stragglers from when
Canoeboot started, where paragraphs referred to Libreboot that
should have actually referred to Canoeboot, or paragraphs
with Libreboot-specific information that does not make sense
in the Canoeboot project e.g. references to vendor scripts.

The resulting will now look no different to any
typical reader than a typical FSF-aligned project.

There is a next stage to this, which will become apparent to
everyone if I have my way.

Leah Rowe bf5bf9aa13 remove redundant paragraph
the paragraph in question largely pertains to
the ivybridge and sandybridge latitudes in libreboot,
not the gm45 latitudes supported in both libreboot
and canoeboot. remove this paragraph (instead of adding
the missing article).

nobody ever reported such issue on the gm45 model, only
the ivy/sandy models.

Leah Rowe 1f47a184d4 don't promote gnuboot as heavily
link only to the history page from every other page,
and link to gnuboot vs canoeboot on the history page as
is already the case

link the history page from the footer instead of the header.

it's still important that they be talked about, but i very
much intend for them to take a backseat. right at the very back.
they are not a part of my world; a world that i built myself.
they have no moral authority over of it.

afterall, why talk about vaporware? i wrote the versus page
when i thought gnuboot might actually have teeth, but the
developers turned out to be completely incompetent. which is a
pity, because i could have benefited from them even if i didn't
always agree with them. oh well!
