Default Beaglebone Black?

Is anyone running NetBSD on the Beaglebone Black?

OpenBSD here. Older 2G model BBB. I'm considering buying an upgraded model to migrate everything to, but other projects are holding that up at the moment (or I'd install NetBSD on the older BBB to test).

https://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/evbarm/beaglebone/

There's a sample dmesg, albeit for the beaglebone, not the BBB.

What is the Open experience like with the black? Any prominent limitations?

Lack of USB support, for one. I haven't tried the GPU out on OpenBSD (verified it ran under the default Linux install, but since I'm running a silc server on it I haven't bothered installing the X sets for OpenBSD, so I don't know if it works or not). Since the USB isn't supported you'll need a USB serial cable to perform the install, but once you have sshd running it isn't required anymore.

There might also be issues with the Realtime processing unit, I haven't tried it out (Linux or OpenBSD).

Really, I'm just running a silly little silc server on a minimal install. The SD card is unforgivably slow, but other than that it does exactly what you'd expect.

I imagined as much with the SD card. Before I pick one up, I'll see if there is any support yet for the Banana Pi.

Looks like it's been worked on as recently as a few days ago:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-tech&m=141227625722523&w=2

Possible issues with the ethernet driver, and as of yet there doesn't appear to be a fully bootable kernel for that board.

It'll be interesting to follow, for sure.

Edit: Sorry, still working on my coffee this morning. That's the *Open*BSD work on the Banana Pi, not NetBSD. Sorry for any confusion. NetBSD complimentary link:

Spoiler: Ethernet doesn't work, but everything else appears to be functional.
