I've been looking for open-source BIOS and I found coreboot (not enough rep for a link here); but when I tried to figure out if my motherboard or chipset was supported they only mentioned "northbridge"s and "southbridge"s and didn't mention any chipsets that I recognized.
(At the time of writing this coreboot's wiki is down so you won't be able to use those links)
My questions are:
- What is a "northbridge"?
- What is a "southbridge"?
- How can I find out which "northbridge" and "southbridge" my desktop has?
