Free BSD 10.1-RELEASE–the latest PI B+ compatible boot files

Wed Jan 07, 2015 2:21 pm

Where can I find the latest boot files to augment the Free BSD 10.1-RELEASE SD image so as to allow the new Raspberry PI B+ to boot up with this operating system?

Thanks in advance!

The fact that there are no replies to this post is an answer in and of itself. I will assume that I will simply have to wait for the next BSD release point for the new fully BSD and PI B+ compatible boot code to be present on the img file.

ghans,

Thank you for your response. I was given to understand that some of the files for BSD UNIX were different than for it's Finnish counterpart Linux. Maybe this received information is wrong. I will try your files this week after I have finished delving into python work.

Thanks and Regards!

I think only kernel.img is ARM code , the rest is GPU
firmware.
