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!
This is a random list of ideas for features which would be nice to have in LinuxBIOS (or a payload).
Having an item here does not mean that someone is necessarily already working on it.
Ideas / Wishlist
- Flashrom-like payload to allow reflashing the BIOS without having to load an OS, boot from floppies or similar.
- Support for the NX-bit.
- Config option for enabling/disabling HPET (high precision event timers) on all boards which have them.
- Config option for enabling/disabling hardware virtualization.
- Config option for enabling/disabling the TPM chip on boards which have one.
- Busybox-style mini-payload for recovery purposes (possible already to a certain degree, but should be simplified).
