Limine is an advanced multiprotocol x86/x86_64 BIOS and UEFI bootloader that supports Linux, multiboot1 and 2, the Limine and stivale protocols, and chainloading.
A bootloader is an essential piece of software which takes over the computer after the firmware relinquishes control of the system. It is the job of the bootloader to find an operating system to boot and perform all the operations needed in order to get the operating system's kernel and modules up and running.
Limine is lightweight, elegant, fast, and the reference implementation of the Limine, stivale and stivale2 boot protocols.
Limine's and stivale(2)'s original target audience are operating system and kernel developers that want to use a boot protocol which supports modern features that GRUB's aging multiboot protocols do not (or do not properly).
Source tarballs are available here. Please refer to the README.md and CONFIG.md files for further instructions regarding installation and configuration.
