Looks like it's xfce. But hm... Gnome and KDE are in the 'Desktop' list... and er... the full package list? 

It may be running MATE...

I guess someone has to flash it and actually give it a go so we find out Smile Regardless, I am curious which features work and do not work using NetBSD (e.g. suspend, etc.,)


RE: NetBSD for Pinebook - Wizzard - 05-25-2018

I would like to try it tonight, will give a feedback.

You'll need to use a plug in wifi adapter or usb ethernet adapter

From https://blog.netbsd.org/tnf/entry/pinebook

Quote:SDIO Wi-Fi is not yet supported.

And you have to love the attention to detail - "In addition, headphone jack sensing is supported to automatically mute the internal speakers when headphones are plugged in." and "The sleep (Fn+Esc), home (Fn+F1), volume down (Fn+F3), volume up (Fn+F4), and mute (Fn+F5) keys on the keyboard are mapped to uhid(4) devices. These can be used with usbhidaction"

Trying this  Big Grin

For pacakges the URL for 32bit seems to exist:

www.invisible.ca/packages/NetBSD/earmv7hf/8.0/All

But not for 64bit?? 

www.invisible.ca/packages/NetBSD/aarch64/8.0/All

Is not found...

I am probably doing something wrong? I-)


RE: NetBSD for Pinebook - jmcneill - 05-29-2018

You haven't done anything wrong, I've only built packages for 32-bit ARM at this point (the 64-bit ARM NetBSD port is only a few months old). I replaced that part of the web site with instructions for building packages from source with pkgsrc.
