AHCI SATA controller not detected

Hi all,

It's for my Helios64 NAS.

I compiled FreeBSD 13.0-BETA2 with GENERIC kernel and the system boot fine but the AHCI SATA controller is not detected.

Thanks
 
Probably this should be done by the authors of the patches.
That is, KOBOL TEAM.
I just prepared an unofficial port for u-boot-helios64 based on the patches provided to me.
My port is available

This still needs testing.
I have no feedback on successful installations other than my own experience.
If you succeed, let me know
 
SleepWalker is it possible to install the image to the internal flash?
Oh sure

SleepWalker well that is fantastic. i want to migrate from my current running armbian to freebsd as it seems to be a bit unstable, so my next question is: how stable is it? :) and can i just install any pkg from ports or pkg?

My Helios64 has been running non-stop for over a year now. And I keep updating.

It works very stable for me. But I have over 20 years of FreeBSD experience. :cool:
Maybe that's why everything works for me.
I don't have feedback from guys who use FreeBSD on Kobol Helios64.

All my SATA drives are in ZFS pools, so it doesn't matter which operating system is currently running (Linux or FreeBSD) the data is equally available.

Usually my Helios64 is running FreeBSD (which is more convenient for me), but if I want to spend the weekend watching movies with my family,
I just run Linux (with ZFS support) from an SD card or USB Flash and spend time watching movies from my storage on 4K TV via Emby.

I have my own package repository, but this is just to have some fine tuning of some of them,
of course everything can be installed with the pkg command from the official repository.

I still don't have time to test 2.5G Ethernet well (and I don't have a 2.5Gbit Switch).
But basically everything works very stable, I'm happy that I have Helios64.

You can write to me if you have any questions.
Good luck.
 
SleepWalker very nice. just want to switch the base os. and as i know from the past 15 years, freebsd was allways a stable partner :) i am mainly using my helios64 as storage for my nomad cluster. but as the armbian images i used over the past 1.5 half years keep behaving very strangly and damn, i tried so much different configurations with cpu governor and voltage adjustments i just want to have it stable :) so as you stated...freebsd will be the way to go for me. thx. i will try it out next weekend.
