External build systems
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!
Coreboot itself can build many other software and include it in the final image. At the time of writing we can, so far:
- Build and include primary payloads such as SeaBIOS, GRUB, U-boot, FILO, Bayou.
- Include some externally built payloads as an TianoCore, A linux kernel and initramfs, An ELF binary.
- Secondary payloads (memtest86+, nvramcui, Coreinfo, tint)
- Build and include some option roms( iPXE, SeaVGABIOS)
This is sufficient for most uses cases and can easily be extended to cover new ones. However some external build system still exist, to address uses cases that might not be desirable to cover within the Coreboot build system.
