(Notes: The binary is not gotten from the AMD site anymore, so tweak the wording regarding that. Also tweak wording in relation to it not being a binary blob, because we have GPL source of it.)

Notes

This board still needs an additional component, called the VSA. For coreboot-v3 build as dbe62. Then add the VSA. You can download a pre-compiled VSA binary from here. You need to uncompress it. It should be 57504 bytes in size and the MD5 hash should be 0ed45c3844bc38ffb0f8c84315cfb91b. The source code for this binary is available from svn://coreboot.org/vsa over subversion.

Copy that file into the root of your build system and execute the following command after coreboot is built and before you flash it.

$ build/util/lar/lar -C lzma -a build/bios.bin ./gpl_vsa_lx_102.bin:blob/vsa

It is also a good idea to zero-fill the LAR archive before considering it a final image, to greatly improve boot time:

$ build/util/lar/lar -z build/bios.bin
