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. For this purpose we will soon provide a disk image, which you can use with the QEMU emulator to test coreboot on your Linux, OS X and Windows computers (without having to do any hardware changes).

Snapshots

There is an archive of snapshots available at qa.coreboot.org. There is a .bz2 tar file that gets updated when the repository changes. Older snapshots are maintained as well. You can also download the most current snapshot directly.

Subversion checkout

coreboot keeps its development tree in a Subversion repository.

Anonymous access

You can check it out as follows:

If you want the new and still in development coreboot v3 (ca. 11 MB data as of 09/2007):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repository/LinuxBIOSv3

If you want the current stable version coreboot v2 (ca. 58 MB data as of 09/2007):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2

If you want a specific revision (see the Confirmed working svn revisions page):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2 -r 2100

If you want the old, unmaintained and unsupported coreboot v1 tree (ca. 47 MB data as of 09/2007):

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv1

If your company installed a firewall that blocks the svn port (3690) you can also check out using the webdav frontend:

 $ svn co https://coreboot.org/svn/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2

Developer access with write permission

Access for developers with write permission, is very similar to anonymous access. Just add your Subversion username as follows when checking out the repository:

 $ svn co svn://<username>@coreboot.org/repos/trunk/LinuxBIOSv2

Source code browsing

You can also browse the coreboot Subversion repository online using the ViewVC interface or the Trac interface.
