I DL:ed the RPI FreeBSD 10 from the files section and “dd” it to my sd-card. I see all pre boot stuff, but the freebsd kernel won’t load. Any ideas?

Got a boot log?

No, it doesn’t come to that. It stops right after checking for kernel and when it enters kernel arg…nothing happens. The normal FreeBSD boot doesn’t appear. I think it’s right after the bootloader or what it’s called. I don’t have FreeBSD to mount the sd-card on at home. I’ll check the sd-card and for some logs at work under this week. There’s no errors or messages that the boot is problematic.

Could you get a screen shot?

Sorry about that 🙁

ok, I don’t actually know if the video output is fully supported. I’ve never tried it. Have you tried using a serial console?

No, i do not have tested a serial console. I’ll bring aone from work and test later. You mean a usb-serial console-cable? I no that the earlier images that you provided (10-alpha/beta) work on this screen/video through HDMI.

No, I mean a USB-RS232 serial cable.

Yes, we mean the same type of cable. The one i got, doesn’t work with my macbook. I’ll get a windows-machine and test again.
