The wiki is being retired!
Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to https://doc.coreboot.org/. Contributions welcome!
This page is about the "All Virtual All The Time" GSoC 2008 project. This project aims to create a modified Linux-As-Bootloader coreboot payload that contains a Linux kernel modified to include KVM support, uClibc, a custom busybox image, and whatever is needed to get KVM-qemu up and running in the ROM image.
In order to build this, you need a modified version of buildrom, that can be cloned from my git repo like this:
git clone git://repo.or.cz/kvm-coreboot.git buildrom
In order for it to work, you need to have installed the prerequisites of buildrom.
You need a x86 version of Linux, since currently the build fails on x86-64.
How to build
If you wish to make some adjustments, you may do it by running one of these commands, at will:
make menuconfig (for buildrom) make kernel-config make uclibc-config make busybox-config
Everything compiles fine on x86 but fails on x86-64.
KVM-qemu crashes due to Thread Local Store(TLS) issues in uClibc.
Fix the TLS issues or migrate to another version of uClibc.
