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!

GNU Arch Repository

There is an experimental GNU arch tree available which is likely to become the main repository soon.

Anonymous access

You can check it out as follows (instead of tla you can also use baz):

  % # get gpg key for checking signed archives
  % wget \
  % gpg --import < linuxbios-developers-keyring.gpg
  % # now do some one time registrations
  % tla my-id "John Doe <>" # Add your email address here
  % tla register-archive \
  % # now check out the archive
  % tla get freebios2

Mirroring the repository

This is very simple. Do:

 wget -m

Which gives you a snapshot in time of the archive. To create a mirror usable by arch:

 tla register-archive                                                          
 tla register-archive ~/{archives}/
 echo gpg --clearsign > ~/.arch-params/signing/=default
 echo gpg --verify-files - > ~/.arch-params/signing/=default.check
 echo > ~/.arch-params/signing/

To update the mirror with the most recent contents:

 tla archive-mirror --devel

Just don't do this in an account where you plan to commit to the upstream archive.

Creating a branch you can edit locally

 tla tag -S you@yourarchive/freebios--devel--2.0

More on tla

CVS Repository (obsolete)

The CVS repository is maintained at (project name "FreeBIOS"). A daily snapshot of the entire source tree is created nightly.

Or, to use CVS directly:

% cvs login

Hit return when it asks you for a password (no password needed). Then checkout (or update) the freebios2 source tree:

% cvs -z3 co freebios2


There is an archive of daily snapshots available at There is a .bz2 tar file that gets updated when the CVS changes. Older snapshots are maintained as well.
