Has anyone tried OpenBSD on the Pinebook 1080p?  It looks like they support other PINE64 models, but no image is available, just some installation files on their mirror.

Check out on twitter, they seem to be doing a lot of work with BSDs on the 11" 1080P Pinebook.

Hi,
I tried it , was able to install it via serial after fiddling around a while (for instance to find out that I need following call for cu ( cu -l /dev/ttyU0 -s 115200 -d ) if one misses the -d nothing seems to show up ... Next problem was that no network device is enabled after booting openbsd install image.... had to resize the physical size of the image and to add the required pakages... after I managed that I was able to install and reboot. Thats it Undecided
But in the end I did not get it booting. Did not find out up to now how to enable the installed bsd to boot from internal.
Anybody here who found out how to?

+1 for this.  Getting this working is rather high on my agenda once the Pro is out.  Can't be any worse than shoehorning OpenBSD netboot via MOP on a MicroVAX...
