    What about 2D/3D hardware acceleration and audio support on Raspberry PI?

    Why does FreeBSD do not have that yet? The other day I installed FreeBSD on a Raspberry PI 3 and it works like a charm, but these 2 important features are missing. Why? All Linuxes seem to have it, even NetBSD has it. Why is FreeBSD lacking behind in this? Such a pity...

    I am trying to put FreeBSD 11.4 or 12.1 on my RasPi original and after I power it on it goes through the boot process but says it can't find a device to write too. I have an 8GB SD card in there. If I can get a video of it I will post. But wanted to see if anyone had experienced this as well.
