There is a good chance there is a bug that causes us to not deal with the smaller block size of sd correctly.

  • A 2GB SD card fails in the BPI.
  • A 8GB SDHC card with the same image (dd'ed) works correctly in the same BPI.

I did not test 32GB or 64GB (SDXC).

I've had a go at installing NetBSD on a Macbook Pro (mid 2012 model). I'm using NetBSD current as of 2016-10-25.

The NetBSD installer from current can install to the whole disk, but it doesn't use GPT. Regardless, it boots ok after a ~20 second delay. In order to remove the delay, I've followed the above instructions.

I had issues with running newfs_msdos from NetBSD. I rebooted to MacOS recovery ran newfs_msdos and then did the rEFInd install.

Assuming that rEFInd has been installed, when changing to hybrid mode, GPT fdisk now has a EFI module that can be copied to the EFI/tools directory. Then you can run gdisk directly from rEFInd. There is, now, no need to install MacOS to a USB stick.

The instructions seem to leave out installing the bootloader on the NetBSD slice.

Hello, nice news (even if published almost 2 years ago :)) ) and information. I would like to ask you how complex could be the porting on the Odroid U3. Do you have some hints or links to find some information? Is there any work in progress? Many thanks in advance for your support.

1.A way to know which audio device to select: $ audiocfg -list

2.The line 'load-module module-detect' in /usr/pkg/etc/pulse/ must be commented.

Unlike as in Linux, in NetBSD please note /dev/rsd0d represents full disk - not /dev/sdb
