Build tutorial

$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/coreboot-v2
$ cd coreboot-v2/targets
$ ./buildtarget kontron/986lcd-m
$ cd kontron/986lcd-m/kontron_986lcd_m

Now copy your payload into the current directory and name it payload.elf. Then:

$ make -s

The resulting coreboot.rom is your coreboot ROM image you can flash using flashrom.

Notes

  • If you use FILO, SATA will probably be hda and hdb, while hdc is the master drive of the IDE controller.
  • Currently you have to use pci=noacpi on the kernel command line to make IDE and SATA work.
  • If you experience kernel crashes (when building without onboard VGA support) try to blacklist the agpgart and intel_agp kernel modules.
  • TODO: Add notes for proper (onboard) VGA setup.
