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!

Superiotool is a GPL'd user-space helper tool for LinuxBIOS development purposes (but may also be useful for other things). It allows you to detect which Super I/O you have on your mainboard, and it can provide detailed information about the register contents of the Super I/O.
