How to create a KVM bios for Olive virtual routers

Olive routers do not work with the bios distributed with the later versions of kvm/qemu (a kernel panic with "dog: ERROR - reset of uninitialized watchdog" error is given). See more details here

They need a bios compiled with the CONFIG_SMBIOS option disabled. To create that bios, follow these steps:

tar xfvz seabios-0.6.2.tar.gz
cd seabios-0.6.2
sed -i -e 's/#define CONFIG_SMBIOS 1/#define CONFIG_SMBIOS 0/' out/autoconf.h
cp out/bios.bin /usr/share/kvm/bios-olive.bin
