Purism Librem 13 coreboot update

Here are the news you’ve been waiting for: the coreboot port for the Librem 13 v1 is 100% done! I fixed all of the remaining issues, it is now fully working and is stable, ready for others to enjoy. I fixed the instability problem with the M.2 SATA port, finished running all the tests to ensure coreboot is working correctly, fixed the headphone jack that was not working, made the boot prettier, and started investigating the Intel Management Engine issue. Read on for details.[…]

coreboot to join Software Freedom Conservancy

Martin Roth made a post on the coreboot blog about the project joining the Software Freedom Conservancy. I hope this means the project will get more funding.

The coreboot project applied to join the Software Freedom Conservancy[0] and has been approved for membership by their board.  There is still some work to be done in hammering out the governance details, but we hope to have everything completed by April. Joining the SFC as coreboot’s fiscal sponsor \will allow us to go forward with fundraising, and that all donations to the coreboot project from the United States will be tax-deductible.  Up to this point, coreboot hasn’t had any official way to accept donations or payments.  This has meant that the project was mainly supported financially by members of the coreboot leadership, which has put some limitations on what we were able to do. Another of the things that joining the SFC means is that we will be formalizing and fully documenting the coreboot leadership structure.  This is one of the Conservancy’s requirements, and something that they will help the project with. The Conservancy offers a number of other services[1]to its members. We encourage everyone to take a look at the SFC, and to consider joining as individual supporters[2].
