RPi Rev.B - only one ROM working. Need BSD

Sun Mar 03, 2013 3:51 am

Hi there.
Buyed RPi from UK.
Rev B, 512Mb, Ethernet.
Works only one ROM - Raspbian.
Any other didn't want to work.. Tryed FreeBSD, Fedora, NetBSD builds...

Raspbian - boots good on 8Gb Class 10 SD and 4Gb class 4 microSD with adapter.
All LED works...
While trying to boot freeBSD, power LED in on, ACT LET blinks once and.... nothing happing...

Somebody have working FreeBSD distr???

Thanks a lot for your replies...

Is it the Fedora ARM build for Raspberry Pi that you tried?

Yes I am!
http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/images/
There i found all of Raspberry OS Builds...
Flashed them to SD card... Nothing happens... Then i flash Raspbian to the same SD - works fine, system boots, Ethernet, USB-ethernet works etc...

Maybe need to do something with stock config.txt?... I don't know :(((
I'm very disappointed...

The freebsd on the link you posted works fine, just tested it, today.

Maybe a little more detail than "Nothing Happens" would be appropriate. We don't know what you're doing.

But no output on TV... Showing @No [email protected]

If it works for only SD Card Image, then would say you have fubared either the SD Card, download or img copying...

I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !

I tried it with a DVI-D monitor, maybe they don't enable the composite video on other distros. I don't have a suitable cable to try it on my old telly.

Downloaded some FreeBSD image for RPi...
boot partitions content was diffirent... New image not works... But boot works fine...

I copied files from right boot and put them to other image (just in file manager) - The miracle!!! It's up!!! )))
But no IPFW, no kernel etc...

Thanks for all...
