I am not sure if that's a good thing. There was always a nice touch to it whether it will work or screw up the machine.
Now the thrill is gone. It just works fine. Long live open source #firmware!
The only thing missing is proper integration into the software updaters of $Distribution.
We'll get to that stage, won't we,
@patrik With the prebuilt Skulls distribution of coreboot for the X230 and the growig trend of #LVFS, I am sure that we will get there, yes. :)
If someone has the time, they could set up #coreboot on openSUSE's hosted Open Build Service with a few common payloads (#SeaBIOS for legacy boot and probably #TianoCore for those who already set up #UEFI #boot). There is already U-Boot, EDK II, ARM Trusted #Firmware and more at https://build.opensuse.org/project/show/hardware:boot where it would fit in.
I have to get to know Heads and Skulls first. No time at the moment :-/
LVFS is just working from X/T *60 onwards and I am not sure if there is a technical barrier to implement/use it for older devices.
@patrik I gues it is a matter of resources and willingness to support older devices.
