Unable to build coreboot with any payload other than SeaBIOS
|Assignee:||Philipp Stanner||% Done:|
After compiling (worked) I can successfully build a coreboot.rom for qemu (x86 i440fx) - as long as I use the standard-payload.
Any other payload (Grub, filo, linux kernel, u-boat etc.) results in a demolition.
I proceeded as descripted in https://www.coreboot.org/Lesson1, one time with, one time without building the payload manually.

In contrast to the other payloads, SeaBIOS does not use Autotools.
The GRUB build failed with the error below.
./autogen.sh: line 86: autoreconf: command not found
So not all required packages were installed, which is a user error. In Debian that program is in the package autoconf. You probably should install build-essential.
Philipp, it’d be great if you updated the coreboot documentation. I’ll close the report nevertheless.
