   This page attempts to document and coordinate efforts towards NetBSD/evbarm on [Raspberry Pi](http://www.raspberrypi.org). All board variants are supported.
   
   Initial Raspberry Pi support was introduced in NetBSD 6.0. NetBSD 7.0 adds complete support for the board, along with introducing support for the quad-core Raspberry Pi 2 board.

 # Installation  # Installation
  - Use the latest HEAD/-current which builds for install   - You may use the rpi.img file created by an evbarm build - evbarm-earmv6hf is recommended. This isn't optimized for Raspberry Pi 2, but allows a single image to be used for all boards.
    - As the Raspberry Pi port is still not part the stable release, you will want to use the     - The Raspberry Pi and Pi 2 ports will be part of the NetBSD 7 release.
      HEAD branch to download installation sets.     - The automatic nightly builds can be found in the 'evbarm-earmv6hf/binary/gzimg/' directory on [nyftp.netbsd.org](http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/).
    - You may use the rpi.img file created by an evbarm build - evbarm-earmv6hf is recommended, but this is not currently available on nyftp. For now, evbarm-earmhf is best.       - The stable build will be under netbsd-7/YYYYMMDDHHMMZ/evbarm-earmv6hf/binary/gzimg/
    - An example can be found in the 'evbarm-earmhf/binary/gzimg/' directory under releng.netbsd.org       - The HEAD/current build will be under HEAD/YYYYMMDDHHMMZ/evbarm-earmv6hf/binary/gzimg/
      - On nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/YYYYMMDDHHMMZ (it will look like pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/201305220150Z)       - For example, http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/netbsd-7/201412161700Z/evbarm-earmv6hf/binary/gzimg/

  - Growing the root file-system     - Most (all?) USB-to-TTL serial adapters only connect Tx, Rx and ground, and do not connect any flow control lines. An effect of missing flow control is that you see console output, but cannot type anything. If so, adjust your serial console application's flow control settings to "none". 
   
         In Kermit, the command is "set flow none".
   
         In minicom, run "minicom -s" and set hardware flow control to "no"

   ## Video playback
   Accelerated video playback is supported in NetBSD 7 with the [OMXPlayer](http://pkgsrc.se/multimedia/omxplayer) application and through GStreamer with the [omx](http://pkgsrc.se/multimedia/gst-plugins1-omx) plugin.
   
   ## OpenGL ES
   Accelerated OpenGL ES is supported in NetBSD 7. The GL ES client libraries are included with the [misc/raspberrypi-userland](http://pkgsrc.se/misc/raspberrypi-userland) package.
   
   ## Quake 3
   A Raspberry Pi optimized build of *ioquake3* is available in the [games/ioquake3-raspberrypi](http://pkgsrc.se/games/ioquake3-raspberrypi) package. To use it, the following additional resources are required:
   
    - pak0.pk3 from Quake 3 CD
    - additional pak files from the [games/ioquake3-pk3](http://pkgsrc.se/games/ioquake3-pk3) package
    - read/write permissions on /dev/vchiq and /dev/wsmouse
   
   Place the pak0.pk3 file in the /usr/pkg/lib/ioquake3/baseq3 directory.
   
   ## RetroArch / Libretro
   Using [emulators/retroarch](http://pkgsrc.se/emulators/retroarch) it is possible to run many emulators at full speed the Raspberry Pi. Emulator cores for various gaming consoles are available in the [emulators/libretro-*](http://pkgsrc.se/search.php?so=libretro-) packages. To begin using retroarch:
   
    - Install [emulators/retroarch](http://pkgsrc.se/emulators/retroarch)
    - Install the libretro core for the system you would like to emulate (lets take [emulators/libretro-gambatte](http://pkgsrc.se/emulators/libretro-gambatte), a GameBoy Color emulator, as an example).
    - Plug in a USB HID compatible Gamepad, such as the Logitech F710 in "DirectInput" mode (set "D/X" switch to "D").
    - Create a config file for your gamepad using *retroarch-joyconfig*.
   [[!template  id=programlisting text="""
   $ retroarch-joyconfig -o gamepad.cfg
   """]]
    - Launch the emulator from the command-line (no X required):
   [[!template  id=programlisting text="""
   $ retroarch --appendconfig gamepad.cfg -L /usr/pkg/lib/libretro/gambatte_libretro.so game.gbc
   """]]
