I met Peter Stuge at the Linuxtag 2008 in Berlin and 
spontaneously decided to order a new shiny motherboard 
(GA-M57SLI-S4). Peter kindly equipped it with a second flash 
ROM for coreboot and the all important switch :-)

But I haven't been paying sufficient attention to details 
and ordered a AMD Phenom X4 CPU (K10). The board does 
support K10 cpus with reduced speed of something (front side 
bus?), even if it's not listed first place in the 
documentation. So there I am with a shiny new system (BIOS 
works well and so does debian unstable) and no fitting 
version of coreboot.

Question: is there support for K10 cpus in coreboot (maybe 
for other boards)? And iff so, is there a possibility to 
build a coreboot for this particular board and cpu?

I'm willing to test, I'm not so sure, whether I can help 

thank you for doing this very cool project,
and yes, I do like the new name and logo ;-)
