   15: about="""
   16: NetBSD/evbarm is the port of NetBSD to various systems based on chips
   17: implementing the ARM architecture. The "evb" component is a reference
   18: to evaluation boards, the original target of the port. However, the
   19: single GENERIC/GENERIC64 kernel now supports a range of machines including
   20: development boards, virtual machines, "ServerReady" (SBBR/SBSA) hardware,
   21: and laptops through both device tree and ACPI based booting.

   27: ### CPU types
   28: 
   29: Various CPU variants are supported, e.g:
   30: 
   31: - earmv6hf - ARMv6-A with EABI and hardware floating point, e.g.
   32:   the original Raspberry Pi.
   33: - earmv7hf - ARMv7-A with EABI and hardware floating point, e.g.
   34:   most recent and common 32-bit ARM boards. Supports up to 8 CPUs.
   35: - earmv7hfeb - Same as the above, but with the CPU running in
   36:   big endian mode.
   37: - aarch64 - 64-bit ARMv8-A boards, e.g. all 64-bit hardware.
   38:   Fully 64-bit kernel and userland. Running 32-bit binaries is supported
   39:   with `compat32`.
   40: - aarch64eb - Same as the above, but with the CPU running in
   41:   big endian mode.
   42: 
   43: evbarm variants are little endian unless otherwise stated. NetBSD provides
   44: big endian images primarily for testing purposes and to ensure that the code
   45: is endian-clean.
   46: 
   47: ### Board specific information (often including installation information)
   48: 
   49: Most ARM boards (unless they have UEFI or Raspberry Pi firmware) require a
   50: board-specific U-Boot image alongside the generic NetBSD image to be
   51: written to their storage. In most cases board-specific U-Boot images can
   52: be built using [pkgsrc](https://pkgsrc.org).

   56:  - [[BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black, and PocketBeagle|BeagleBone]]
   57:  - [[NVIDIA Tegra|Tegra]]

   62: 
   63: **NOTE**: This list is incomplete. For a full list of supported device tree
   64: based boards, please see the list of
   65: [32-bit](https://github.com/NetBSD/src/blob/netbsd-9/sys/arch/evbarm/conf/GENERIC#L18) and
   66: [64-bit](https://github.com/NetBSD/src/blob/netbsd-9/sys/arch/evbarm/conf/GENERIC64#L20) device trees.

   68: ### QEMU
   69: 
   70: See the [[NetBSD/evbarm under QEMU|qemu_arm]] page for instructions on how to get started with QEMU.

   73: 
   74: ### SSH configuration
   75: 
   76: The default configuration will connect to the local network via DHCP and
   77: run an SSH server.
   78: In order to use the SSH server, we must configure users.
   79: This can be done by writing to the SD card's MS-DOS partition.
   80: 
   81: Create a creds.txt file and use:
   82: 
   83:            useradd user password
   84: 
   85: See [creds_msdos(8)](https://man.NetBSD.org/creds_msdos.8) for
   86: additional configuration options.
   87: 
   88: ### anita
   89: 
   90: anita can be used to test builds.  (In addition to anita, install qemu and dtb-arm-vexpress from pkgsrc.)   The release subdirectory should follow the naming convention on the autobuild cluster, used below.
   91: 
   92:  - evbarm-earmv7hf uses 'qemu-system-arm -M vexpress-a15'
   93:  - evbarm-aarch64 uses 'qemu-system-aarch64 -M virt'
   94:  - Information on how to test emulated versions of other specific hardware is welcome.
