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 19:18, 5 November 2009

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, OS X and Windows computers (without having to do any hardware changes).

Snapshots

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

Subversion checkout

coreboot keeps its development tree in a Subversion repository.

Anonymous access

If you want the current stable version of coreboot (ca. 92 MB data as of 11/2009):

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

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

 $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk coreboot -r 4898

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

Firewall-friendly HTTP/webdav access

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

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

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/coreboot/trunk coreboot

Source code browsing

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