Build coreboot using LBdistro
What is LBdistro?
LBdistro is an improvement on buildrom to let user customize what binaries will be at final ROM. The original name was biosdistro but Uwe suggest me change it to LBdistro. In the LBdistro the user can just select through menus what applications, kernel features and LinuxBIOS will be added to ROM. So the system will compile everything and the user will just need write it this firmware in you BIOS flash.
How to getting started?
First you need download the toolchain used to compile some LBdistro packages:
Extract it to /usr/local:
sudo tar jxvf toolchain.tar.bz2 -C /usr/local
Get last LBdistro from SVN repository:
svn co https://lbdistro.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/lbdistro/trunk LBdistro
After that issue:
cd LBdistro make menuconfig make
For now only QEMU compilation is generating ROM, but other boards will be added after Kdrive and application works.
There is some problems when compiling it on Debian and others (on Ubuntu 6.06 it works fine). This problem will be fixed ASAP.
In my system I need change the command "lzma e" to "lzma -z" to compress payload
