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?
I have a ready-to-use U-boot, and now I want to replicate the Linux steps of cooking kernel and rootfs images for aarch64 FreeBSD. My goal is to flash them to a 16-Mbyte SPI Flash chip.
1) Firstly, would a generic aarch64 FreeBSD release be capable of booting from SPI?
2) Kernel image...
Hello. It seems security/gnutls from ports and pkg are not making use of the AES acceleration features from the ARMv8 Cryptographic extensions. This makes Samba server encryption incredibly slow.
I've observed this on a Mac M1 FreeBSD 13-RELEASE virtual machine and also a RockPro64 running...
I'm currently playing around with an ThunderX2 server from Gigabyte (R281-T91). For the moment it's a machine I purchased for learning more about ARM64, experimentation, and testing (I've until now been limited to just low powered SBC's). Eventually I want to use it as a build box for ports...
Hi, I am trying to boot FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT on RK3328 based new OrangePi R1 Plus (seems like clone of NanoPi R2s)
So I tried @ganbold 's FreeBSD image and official aarch64 images on it but I had kernel panic all of them. I could not find u-boot for FreeBSD supported OrangePi r1 plus rk3328.
I've succeeded in importing the 'FreeBSD-12.2-RELEASE-arm64-aarch64.vhd' into the Parallels Desktop 16 for Mac M1 Preview Edition by converting the given .vhd into .hdd and substitute the .hdd file in the .pvm. However, after booting, issues occur that I can't do anything else.
As you have...
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...
Been trying to get FreeBSD installed on the Pine A64+ (Rev B, 2016-02-24; 1GB), but have run into problems. Was hoping someone might have some pointers on how to hop over those.
I've tried a number of images but not having the TTL cable yet I'm stuck with those that show stuff on my...
