FreeBSD 11 or 12
#1
Has anyone tried or gotten the ROCK64 working with FreeBSD 11 or 12?

(and will there be an upgrade to USB 3.2 at some point?)

A freeBSD image has not been built for the Pine products.

... future updates to hardware 'at some point' are always possible.  No promises.

We have good connection with team FreeBSD and have supply PINE64 boards to them, hopefully will get some good news soon.

The boards from your firm are NOT on the Tier 1 support list.    https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/release...AGES/11.1/ shows the 32 bit boards VS a "generic" arm64 iso.   There is the not-updated-text (RaspBSD is a image of FreeBSD 11 - when the link shows it's FreeBSD 12) RaspBSD page that has a call out to the Pine64.

I have 2 of the Rock64's on order so I guess I'll be one of the few trying FreeBSD on this platform.  Whenever they arrive.

The people running the podcast/youtube BSD Now program have their attempt at a thin client with TrueOS Pico but when asked about the Rock64 - there was no response.

The FreeBSD has not fully support on ARMv8 yet and not come as surprise that PINE A64 not in the Tier 1 support list. BTW, our FreeBSD contact person is Emmanuel Vadot and we have ship several PINE A64 boards and Pinebooks to FreeBSD developers that introduced by him. Looking forward on the your support to get FreeBSD on ROCK64.

Glad to know that BSD Now mentioned about ROCK64. I have asked and checked with marketing and sales team, there is no record on TrueOS Pico team has contact us. For sure, we have interest to collaborate with them and please assist to bridge up.

I finally got in my Rock64 boards.   Alas, one of them will be handed over to a person at the Spectrum (Time Warner/Charter) HQ in Denver this week so I'll be down to no power supplies and 1 board.    

Did you ever send some of the devices to the HardenedBSD team?   They have builds for the Pine64

If BSD developers need more PINE64 and ROCK64 boards, just PM me.

those bsd builds for the pine64 board do give login connection via ssh. i did not spend time with it beyond that but as everyone knows, pine64 builds are different than rock64 builds which this thread is in rock64 area of forum. but as mentioned on the bsd website the builds are headless. but anyway since pine64 builds are working it should be a matter of converting pine64 to rock64.
