Yesterday i tried to install ffmpeg in a FreeBSD-11.1 in a BeagleBone Black.
The package is missing, this is a bit of a problem because BBB are very small manchines.
Anyhow, I am tring to compile it from ports.
Now, the question is, supposing the compilation of the port will succeed how...
I have been experimenting with running a project that works great on AMD64/X86 on an RPI3 B, and have had some hiccups with jails, and I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar, and has any idea as to the cause.
I've noticed the standard method of NATting jails on a...
I've got a raspberry pi 2b running Freebsd 11.0. Works fine (except keeping world up to date is a pain for a non-tier-1 architecture), but given that 11.0 is EOL I need to upgrade to 11.1. So I built a new image with crochet from branch releng/11.1 in git. However, this image fails to boot...
I want to create a mini-distribution for MIPS or ARM based low-RAM low-ROM devices based on FreeBSD. It will be like pfsense. I will provide a way people to use FreeBSD's features without knowing much about FreeBSD. Still they will be able to reach the command line if they want to.
I'm looking for a higher (than R-Pi) powered devboard to do some tinkering with FreeBSD. I have set my eyes currently on the DragonBoard 410 (or 810 if money allows).
Do any of you have experience with these? Or any ARM-based devboards that come (somewhat) close to the performance...
I have built both kernel and world for the Odroid C1 on a FreeBSD 11 guest in VirtualBox. Unfortunately I don't have a usb to microsd and VirtualBox does not have a option to share a sdcard reader. I tried creating a .vmdk file that points out to the sdcard on the HOST and shared...
Figured out how to get RPI2 running at 900mhz at boot versus default 600mhz
To survive reboot I had to add to sysctl.conf and config.txt
echo hw.cpufreq.turbo=1 >> /etc/sysctl.conf
echo force_turbo=1 >> /boot/msdos/config.txt
root@rpi2:~ # dmesg | grep cpufreq
I have the DS3231 module running on an BananaPi. Here is how:
Add this to/src/sys/arm/conf/ALLWINNER
This adds it to the kernel.
Then add the device to the device tree source /src/sys/boot/fdt/dts/arm/bananapi.dts
Insert this at the bottom:
I submitted this a while back, but never heard back: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=204008
What concerns me about this is that cap_enter() doesn't kill the program if it's disabled. I don't think any compiler warnings are sent, nor anything at run time. It just silently...
I am attempting to compile the BSD kernel for the ARM architecture Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SOC. This in theory should be trivial since its a supported SOC:
However, my attempts so far have failed to boot. I suspect the reason is that this...
I am using a FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT as a base and have installed the ports-mgmt/poudriere-devel locally from my base ports tree. I now install a poudriere jail so I can build packages for my Raspberry pi 2.
The following commands seem to complete successfully. I set qemu_user_static enabled in...
