Re: HOWTO: build a custom image using crochet

It looks like there was a regression regarding the VM disk images and that is why you were getting the error attempting to load it. This will be fixed during the next release but for now you can use the last working image: http://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/snapshots/VM-IMAGES/11.0-CURRENT/amd64/201...

Re: HOWTO: build a custom image using crochet

Did you decompress it first? You can use 7-zip for that.

Re: HOWTO: FreeBSD 11 and Nginx on Raspberry Pi B+

It was mentioned in another thread that there was a regression on 11.0-CURRENT that broke Raspberry Pi. It was subsequently fixed and I see that a new build was uploaded today. I'd give that one a try:

Re: Booting own FreeBSD image failed

It looks like you got your answer on the FreeBSD ARM mailing list. When you built your custom image the HEAD version was broken but it is fixed now. For future reference if you have problems try a known working version (I mentioned that I tested version 273702 in the HOWTO you referenced).

Re: Portsnap - first run - squid

Run "make rmconfig" to remove the configuration options you selected previously. For more information about using ports:

HOWTO: build a custom image using crochet

Building your own FreeBSD image for Raspberry Pi has a few advantages over using an official image. For one thing it allows you to pick up the latest fixes since official images aren't created very often. It also allows you to customize the image for your own needs. For example you can configure SSH...

Re: HOWTO: FreeBSD 11 and Nginx on Raspberry Pi B+

I recently noticed that my instructions above for enabling the NTP daemon are insufficient. It works until the next reboot cycle and then ntpd will fail to load during boot. The problem is that RPi has no battery to keep track of time when it is powered off so when it boots there is a large error in...

Re: HOWTO: FreeBSD 11 and Nginx on Raspberry Pi B+

I can confirm that it is no longer necessary to create a swap partition (step 10 in the original post) when using the latest boot files which recognize the full 512MB of RAM.

UPDATE: There are some new boot files at the following URL: https://github.com/kientzle/crochet-freebsd/tree/master/board/RaspberryPi/boot Download the following files and copy them to your MSDOS partition: bootcode.bin fixup.dat fixup_cd.dat start.elf start_cd.elf This fixes the problem with RAM (a...
