lxbios is a utility for reading/writing LinuxBIOS parameters and displaying information from the LinuxBIOS table. It is intended for x86-based Linux systems (either 32-bit or 64-bit) that use LinuxBIOS. For more information about LinuxBIOS, see http://www.linuxbios.org/.

The LinuxBIOS table is created at boot time by LinuxBIOS. The kernel preserves this table so that its contents remain available after the system has finished booting. The table resides in low physical memory and may be accessed through the /dev/mem interface. It contains various system information such as the type of mainboard in use. It also specifies locations in the CMOS (nonvolatile RAM) where the LinuxBIOS parameters are stored.

lxbios may be used to perform the following operations:
