    Using AMC6821 I2C fan controller?

    Hi, I would like to use the AMC6821 I2C fan controller that came on my SolidRun HoneyComb LX2 (NXP LX2160) board, but it does load properly in FreeBSD (13.2-RELEASE). I can only see it with devinfo: What do you think could be needed to get it to work properly? Thank you!

    Solved Endianness on aarch64, powerpc64 and riscv64?

    Hello everyone, Do you know the endianness used by FreeBSD on these platforms? 64-bit ARMv8 (aarch64) 64-bit PowerPC (powerpc64) 64-bit RISC-V (riscv64) If you have a computer with one of those architectures, you can find out the endianness of FreeBSD on that architecture by compiling and...
