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 Contributions welcome!

Note, that these snapshots are for people, which use linux as operating system and are able to build software from the sourcecode.

There is no easy to install package for people who want to quickly try out a new bios on their computer,yet. For this purpose we will provide in the near future a diskimage, which can be simulated with the software Qemu on linux, OS X and windows computers. With such an image, you will be able to (virtually) boot a mini linux with a simulated mainboard of the OLPC-project with a LinuxBIOS on your computer.


There is an archive of snapshots available at There is a .bz2 tar file that gets updated when the repository changes. Older snapshots are maintained as well. You can also download the most current snapshot directly.

For developers

LinuxBIOS keeps its development tree in a Subversion repository.

Anonymous access

You can check it out as follows:

 $ svn co svn://

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

 $ svn co svn:// -r 2100

If you want the old, unmaintained and unsupported LinuxBIOS v1 tree:

 $ svn co svn://

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

 $ svn co

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>

Source code browsing

You can also browse the LinuxBIOS Subversion repository online using the ViewVC interface or the Trac interface.
