It's time for us to give back -- not just to our community, but to those less privileged.
Read about it in our new blog post: https://www.pine64.org/2019/08/19/its-time-to-start-giving-back/
From #OpenBSD boot log on #orangepi zero:
com0 at simplebus0: ns16550, no working fifo
This cannot be true: I think no one has produced 16550 without A since the 90s😉
I’m glad that it booted at all, now let's see what one can do with it. Although I am somewhat bothered that the logs have nothing about the presence of four cores.🤔
#OpenBSD INSTALL.armv7: ``To do so first install the u-boot-arm and dtb packages.''
Are you kidding me?!
``(Have you tried telling anyone in person that #NetBSD still uses CVS? No? Try it and observe their faces.) So here we have the dichotomy: we either change to a different system acknowledging a few deficiencies and explicitly annoy a few people along the way, or we change nothing and we silently shoo existing and new developers away. Guess which one will always win.''
Our new blog is officially here. Come read about why we left Medium and how we built a crazy fast, privacy-respecting blog just for you.
U-Boot builds and runs fine on #orangepi zero but #netbsd itself not.
It looks like I have to install #netbsd in a virtual machine and learn how to compile the whole system.
After that, you should not be surprised that Linux is more popular, you know: ``Copy the image to the card and boot. That's all.''
``Install a board-specific U-Boot (2018.05 or later) from pkgsrc to the SD card (the u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin-s are provided by sysutils/u-boot-<boardname> packages)''
Guys, this is not cool at all --- what if I don't have NetBSD installed and, therefore, no pkgsrc?! 🤪
It just occurred to me that I'm so used to the fact that #DragonFlyBSD does not support other architectures besides x86, that I did not even consider installing #bsd on an #orangepi.
I must try to put #NetBSD on it! 🤣
I put the first heat sinks that came to hand, in the future I will replace them with large ones, if it does not burn.
Ha, they even have gopher://devuan.org 😉
