Develop UEFI with openSUSE - Gary Lin - FOSSASIA Summit 2017

Published on: Sunday, 9 April 2017

Speaker: Gary Lin, SUSE

In the BIOS time, the firmware was usually obscure and the OS developers had to deal with it by experience. Fortunately, nowadays most of the firmware/hardware vendors share the code from the open source project, edk2, in their own UEFI implementations, so it's much easier to understand the how the firmware works, especially the hardware-independent software stack. What's even better is that edk2 contains a sub-project, OVMF, to provide the firmware for QEMU, the virtual machine, we don't need a bare metal to implement features or debug hardware independent issues anymore. No more expensive flash programmer, just copy the file to update the firmware immediately. This talk will present how to develop and debug OVMF with openSUSE and introduce the new UEFI features in openSUSE Leap 42.2.
