Re: Announcing KuroBox support
Joel Carnat <joel%carnat.net@localhost> asked;
I don't have a console on my KuroBox and actually boot NetBSD via the
Linux boot loader.
I have 2 questions regarding this email :
1. does this mean NetBSD can (know) run standalone on the Kurobox ?
This port does not require Linux runtime to run.
2. does the box automatically boots on the network when no disk is installed ?
It's possible, when U-Boot is instructed as
setenv bootcmd run diskless
I did not mention two prequisites;
1. serial console,
2. U-Boot (it's known stock U-Boot port is useful enough)
"netboot.bin" is a second stage bootloader which works as a functional
bridge between U-Boot and standard ELF NetBSD kernel. It can be
stored in unoccupied NOR flash space.
IDE/SATA diskboot facility is under developement When completed, the
entire system will become a genuine self-hosted computer.
