coreinfo is a small informational payload for coreboot. Currently, it can display CPU information, PCI information, coreboot table information, and show a CMOS dump.

Screenshots

Downloading and building coreinfo

The coreinfo payload uses libpayload, thus you need to get that first and build it:

$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/payloads/libpayload
$ cd libpayload
$ make menuconfig
$ make

You can then get coreinfo itself and build it:

$ cd ..
$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/payloads/coreinfo
$ cd coreinfo
$ make menuconfig
$ make

The file build/coreinfo.elf is your final coreinfo payload which you can use with coreboot (v2 or v3), either on real hardware or in a QEMU image, e.g. like this:

$ qemu -L build -hda /dev/zero -serial stdio

(where build/bios.bin is your coreboot v3 image in this case)
