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!
coreinfo is a small informational payload for coreboot. Currently, it can display CPU information, PCI information, coreboot table information, and show a CMOS dump.

Downloading and building coreinfo
The coreinfo payload uses libpayload, thus you need to get that first and build it:
$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/payloads/libpayload $ cd libpayload $ make menuconfig $ make
You can then get coreinfo itself and build it:
$ cd .. $ svn co svn://coreboot.org/repos/trunk/payloads/coreinfo $ cd coreinfo $ make menuconfig $ make
The file build/coreinfo.elf is your final coreinfo payload which you can use with coreboot (v2 or v3), either on real hardware or in a QEMU image, e.g. like this:
$ qemu -L build -hda /dev/zero -serial stdio
(where build/bios.bin is your coreboot v3 image in this case)
