pine LTS with openBSD
#1
Hi All,

I received the pine64 LTS board today and would like to load openBSD on to it. I have openBSD current snapshots running on a much older (from February 2016ish) pine64 board without any issues.

I did what I did last week to install openBSD on the working board:


Code:
sudo dd if=miniroot63.fs of=/dev/sdf bs=1M


Hooked up the serial connection, applied power and all I receive in the terminal is this:


Code:
U-Boot SPL 2018.03 (Mar 20 2018 - 04:43:06 -0600)
DRAM: 0 MiB
### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###


So what's it mean? Do I need to have the spi flashed with something? Does openBSD need to add support for this u-boot? Do I need an eMMC thing?
Here's the installation instructions for arm64:
https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snap...TALL.arm64
https://www.openbsd.org/arm64.html

LTS is missing, but I do see this: "Pine64 Pine 64/64+" Is this separate from LTS?

Thanks,
sean

The PINE A64+ using DDR3 memory and PINE A64-LTS using LPDDR3 memory.

To run OpenBSD on the Pine64 LTS, use u-boot for the Pinebook (Pinebook and LTS are very similar, both use LPDDR3)...
Come have a chat in the Pine A64 IRC channel >>

I've got it working now!

Had to install a couple packages on my openBSD machine and copy the files to the SD card for it to boot.
