NOTE: The coreboot repositories make use of svn:external properties to get required components into its source tree. However, this automatism only works when using the SVN protocol. If you are using the HTTP protocol for downloading coreboot, you need to download those sub-components manually in order to be able to build coreboot.

Revision as of 18:36, 20 March 2013

Note: These snapshots are for people, who use Linux as operating system and are able to build software from the source code.

There is no easy to install package for people who want to quickly try out a new BIOS on their computer, yet. However, we provide some images for the QEMU emulator to test coreboot (and some payloads) on your Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows computers (without having to do any hardware changes). But please note that these images can not be used on any mainboard, they will only work in QEMU!

Snapshots

There is an archive of coreboot snapshots available at qa.coreboot.org. A new tar.bz2 file is created whenever the repository changes.

Git

coreboot has switched to using Git for version control. Please see the Git page for much useful information on how to work with Git and gerrit in coreboot.

Old subversion repository references that still apply will continue to be kept here.

Git clone

coreboot keeps its development tree in a Git repository.

Anonymous access

To clone the coreboot repository (ca. 120 MB data as of 04/2012):

 $ git clone http://review.coreboot.org/p/coreboot

If you want the obsolete, unsupported, and experimental coreboot v3 tree (ca. 18 MB data as of 11/2009):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repository/coreboot-v3

If you want the old, unmaintained and unsupported coreboot v1 tree (ca. 47 MB data as of 10/2008):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/coreboot/branches/coreboot-v1

Developer access with write permission

Please see our wiki page about Git for all the details.

Source code browsing

You can browse the coreboot Git repository online using gitweb including its tree view for accessing the files.
