  Description     : Legacy BIOS implementation

 SeaBIOS is a legacy BIOS implementation, aimed at supporting not only
 emulated hosts such as QEMU, but also real hardware.
 Note, however, that SeaBIOS does not handle early initialization of core
 chipsets, so don't even think of flashing it to your board (look at
 Coreboot for that).
 This package provides a build of SeaBIOS that can be loaded from GRUB 2.
 It's primarily targetted at systems that run non-BIOS flavours of GRUB
 (such as grub-coreboot, grub-efi or grub-ieee1275), to give them the
 capability of booting BIOS-based operating systems.

Preliminary packages are available at:


-- System Information:
Debian Release: lenny/sid
  APT prefers unstable
  APT policy: (500, 'unstable')
