Re: 2019-09-28-netbsd9-raspi-earmv6hf.img (Re: Raspberry Pi update please.)

I've updated 2019-09-28-netbsd9-raspi-earmv6hf.img.gz for RPI.


- NetBSD 9.99.12 evbarm-earmv6hf 201909211450Z rpi.img from nyftp.
- Testing: bwfm0 Broadcom and Cypress wireless network driver
  1. add kernel configration
    bwfm*   at sdmmc?
  2. add firmware

I've tried NetBSD on a RPI 3B+ board (my 1st time, I'm fairly familiar with RPI & Linux as user/admin and with NetBSD), using the above NetBSD image on a 64GB mSDC

During boot the mSD card is being resized.

Resizing of
/dev/rld0a: grow cg | ...

/dev/rld0a: write sb | ...

has taken ~ _1 hour_ each! Is this long time normal? How can resizing made faster/shorter?. Can the large mSD card (64GB) be a reason?

Btw. NetBSD runs perfectly (and fast) after boot, incl. network.

Thanx for advise and regards. / Hilmar.
