How to install coreboot on a Lenovo x230


I already use coreboot on my Lenovo W500 with FreeBSD. I bought a Lenovo x230 for a nice price. I decide to install coreboot on it.

As my installation notes might be useful for other people I decided to create a blog post about it.

#coreboot #raspberry-pi #skulls #linux #x230 #lenovo

Did you notice that rather than on PC where you download a generic image which you can just live boot from USB, on ARM every distro needs to support every device individually? It's not just lacking mainline Linux support, it's also lacking a generic way to boot these devices like x86 has. #SPIflash can solve this perfectly by implementing UEFI on a dedicated chip but current new @PINE64 devices are lacking this. Let's get loud to make them add this again in new devices!

January Update:

CNY starts Feb 1st; production & shipping stand still
#pinephonepro EE orders open
#pinephone keyboard is available
#PineNote e-paper works (!!!) now available for order without coupon
#pinetime InfiniTime 1.8 release best one yet & more!


All work and no play makes Pete a dull boy...

To not end up in a "The Shining" situation, I decided to play a little with one of my new toys. #pinephone #pinephoneKeyboard #UBportsCE

I've been meaning to start a blog for a while, this seemed like a good opportunity. Here's my first impressions of the PinePhone keyboard: avery.cafe/blog/pinephone-keyb

Age=53y, 0m, 0d.

Ever wondered how #Phosh UI runs on @PINE64 #PineNote?

This is running on top of the mainline kernel. youtu.be/76uFrG3b-Y0

If your company really doesn't engage in unfair employment practices, there's no point in adding a stupid whitelist (ahem) like "m/f/d" to your job description. It doesn't make you any more inclusive, it just makes you look like that.

If you really want to improve the status quo, work on your interview and candidate selection process. Make it transparent and specify clear selection criteria. Strip data like nationality, age, gender etc. from the CV as early as possible in the application phase.

Sxmo 1.7.0 was just released, featuring most of all lots of fixes and small improvements that should make daily usage easier. Thanks to the many contributors!
