Coreboot works on the Alix.2c3 and its successor Alix.2d3. The easiest way to build coreboot for these boards is to use Buildrom. Enable the 'Experimental features', choose coreboot version v3, and then select the Alix.2c3 target (this also works for the Alix.2d3).
Alternatively, you can build coreboot manually. Currently this board is only supported in coreboot v3.
This board still needs a binary blob from AMD called VSA.
For coreboot-v3 build as alix2c3. Then add the VSA. You can download the VSA blob from here. You need to uncompress it. It should be 57504 Bytes in Size and MD5 should be 0f4fd87b3eef78bd90b56a39646f5845.
Copy that file into the root of you build system and execute the following command after coreboot is built and before you flash it.
build/util/lar/lar -C lzma -a build/bios.bin ./amd_vsa_lx_1.01.bin:blob/vsa
If you want to use coreboot v2 on this alix board, you'll need to port coreboot to it. See the Geode Porting Guide.
