Toolchain Scripts

Zerocat “Coreboot Machines v0.10.0” is out!

The toolchain scripts now support recent project versions, such like coreboot@4.11, grub@grub-2.04 and seabios@rel-1.13.0. This gives room for experiments. However, the reliable combination of older project versions (coreboot@4.8.1, grub@2.02 and seabios@rel-1.12.0) still is maintained and suggested by default, until more successful experiences (i.e. in respect to bluetooth LEDs and adapters) have been gathered. Check CHANGES to see details.

Example Invocation

Example invocation of “setup-toolbox.sh --usage” (Version v0.9.1)

Example invocation of “setup-toolbox.sh --usage” (Version v0.9.1)

Payload “Coreinfo” doesn't run on T60 machines, same as GRUB’s halt command. Please use gen-payload-grub.sh with options --grub-nocoreinfo and --grub-nopoweroff to take this into account.

The X230, T430 and T430s have no working sound card upon boot, thus GRUB Console is muted. Therefore, Zerocat’s Morse Code Dialogues do not make sense and script gen-payload-grub.sh should be invoked with option --grub-nomorse. (However, audio is back once you log in into your GNU/Linux-libre Operating System.)
