We wanted to compliment Andrew Turner on his progress bringing FreeBSD to the EFIKA:

FreeBSD for the EFIKA

That is good work Andrew! Thanks for keeping your project blog updated.

BTW, you can expect some interest from the folks at Directron. Jacob, aka skumby is a FreeBSD fan and a very hard working member of that solid Team!

R&B :)

He is not the only one eagerly waiting for a functional FreeBSD port :-) You can count on me, as soon as there is anything to test!

The current status is I'm attempting to work out why my open firmware network driver is having problems reading and writing packets to and from the device.

For example I can see FreeBSD sending the packet, however it doesn't appear on the wire for a few seconds and at a certain point attempting to write a packet to the ethernet device will fail with the write returning a value of -2.

I need a network driver to get NFS working to work as it makes getting data onto it's disk easier.

It may be far easier to write a native driver than to work with a polled, interrupt-less firmware networking abstraction like the one provided by OF.

It may be significantly easier for you, too, to concentrate on getting USB and ATA working, as I would have thought they'd already be mostly supported, and simply need some simple glue support..

Isn't using a USB disk far easier than dealing with OF? :D
