Re: New RaspberryPI image to test

I've uploaded a new kernel.img that should fix your SD card and sshd problem:


The kernel outputs to serial console by default, you can create a 'cmdline.txt' 
on the MSDOS partition of your SD card with "console=fb" in it to use the 
framebuffer console instead.

Xorg works as well, you need to install NetBSD 6 evbarm X sets and then shark 
xserver.tgz over top. Add genfb.type=39 to cmdline.txt otherwise your reds and 
blues will be swapped. Grab xorg.conf from here:
