coreboot

Compare

  Analyzed about 1 month ago

coreboot (formerly known as LinuxBIOS) is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) you can find in most of today's computers. It performs just a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes a so-called payload, for example a Linux kernel, FILO, GRUB2 ... [More] , OpenBIOS, Open Firmware, SmartFirmware, GNUFI (UEFI), Etherboot, ADLO (for booting Windows 2000 and OpenBSD), Plan 9, or memtest86. [Less]

libpayload

Compare

  Analyzed 7 days ago

libpayload is a small BSD-licensed static library (a lightweight implementation of common and useful functions) intended to be used as a basis for coreboot payloads. The benefits of linking a coreboot payload against libpayload are: * Payloads do not have to implement and maintain low-level ... [More] code for I/O, common functions, etc. * Payloads can be recompiled and deployed for CPU architectures supported by coreboot in the future. * The libpayload functions can be tested and scrutinized outside payload development. * Payloads themselves may be partly host-tested, e.g. against an emulation libpayload.
