AmigaOne X5000 - FreeBSD Only

Postby xeno74 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 8:11 pm


Hi All,

Justin Hibbits has ported FreeBSD to the AmigaOne X5000.

I downloaded the FreeBSD uImage from the website today. I tried to boot it with the following commands:

Code: Select all
load sata 0:1 1000000 amiga64.uImage
load sata 0:1 3000000 cyrus.dtb
bootm 1000000 - 3000000

Unfortunately the FreeBSD kernel doesn't boot on my X5000.

Error message:

Code: Select all
Critical Input Exception
### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###

I tried several dtb files.

Any hints?

What is FreeBSD?

FreeBSD is an operating system for a variety of platforms which focuses on features, speed, and stability. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX® developed at the University of California, Berkeley. It is developed and maintained by a large community.

Nice to see that more flavours appear...

Hopefully we might have one complete usable system in the future.. :-)
