Re: NetBSD on beaglebone


The method should be ok with BeagleBone. There is usually environment
variable called ${loadaddr} to tell suitable load address. Goes like

=> printenv loadaddr 
=> printenv bootcmd
bootcmd=tftpboot ${loadaddr} netbsd.gz.ub; bootm ${loadaddr}


=> printenv bootcmd
bootcmd=mmc init; fatload mmc 0:1 ${loadaddr} netbsd.gz.ub; bootm ${loadaddr}

BTW, it's easy to make the board multi-bootable by renaming netbsd.gz.ub
to uImage in the SD cards FAT partition. One card boots to Linux and
the another boots to NetBSD without U-Boot environment modifications.
