thanks. But does this apply to the beaglebone as is ?
Especially, is the load address the same on the beaglebone ?
I think for Sheevaplug the load address is the same between FreeBSD
and NetBSD, therefore, the load address on Beaglebone should also be
the same between the two I guess.

Looks like it's 0x80200000

Worth a try anyway.
thanks. The first information is that the default boot command is hardcoded
in the u-boot binary. I was looking for a text file with this command.
This page also gives the magic commands to load the kernel from
the fat partition of the sd card.

It also seems that one can rebuild a u-boot for this board. I wonder how hard
it would be to add ffs support to u-boot (but maybe it's not worth the

I've compiled a netbsd-BEAGLEBONE kernel from the last -current sources.
'file' against netbsd.ub tells me that the load address is 0x80300000

I've loaded a kernel this way and got:

Is NetBSD on the beaglebone supposed to work yet ?
If no, is a missing items list available somewhere ?

There are still things to be worked on (USB), but last time I booted beaglebone it worked well. I usually boot via TFTP (makes replacing kernels easier), with root on the micro-SD card, and the network works OK.

I have not seen the particular problem above, but I haven't booted my bbone in a few days (busy with other stuff)
