Well, after using NetBSD on my pinebook I see it's very unusable for stable/standard purposes, so I decide to continue with manjaro arm instead NetBSD.

If you want I can upload/send you my /usr/pkgsrc/packages/all. It's about 650 MB of data. Send me where and how to do that on a private message.

Why do you say its unusable ? Can you define what exactly is your "standard purposes" usage Smile

Create an usable system takes a lot of time to compile it... ;(

My Pinebook NetBSD aarch64 is working nonstop since about 17th November 2018 on NetBSD pkgsrc -current binary packages to make this task a little easier for others... what is amazing is that this machine needs little power, is quiet, does not heat-up .. just works. things just take time ...
