My NetBSD on Pinebook Pro journey
#4
Thank you!

I haven't had a chance to keep trying kde4. I've been without internet for a while. I was counting on being able to USB tether my phone, but this doesn't work with my particular phone apparently (I'm not the only one reporting this). So having not gotten that working, I may go back to trying to get smaller disk slices first, but not via sysinst. I'm toying with the idea of booting with an sd card and repartitioning the already installed and working eMMC. I'm pretty sure that the problem with sysinst is not Pinebook Pro related. The biggest issue is keeping it from clobbering the /boot partition. I've had this same problem on x64, amd64, and ARM (for RPi). I'm surprised other people aren't reporting trouble with this. I would assume that installing Linux/Windows and NetBSD on the same drive is pretty common.

The version I've been using is 9.99.67. I got it from armbsd.org/arm (if I recall correctly). I have increased swap to 8G. I haven't done enough testing to see if that helps. On everything else I've installed NetBSD on, I have a ton of swap, just because I'm used to having swap=2×RAM (which I understand isn't necessary in NetBSD).
