Subject: 2021-04-02-netbsd-raspi-earmv6hf.img (Re: Raspberry Pi update please.)
From: Jun Ebihara <>
I've updated 2021-04-02-netbsd-raspi-earmv6hf.img.gz for RPI.
- NetBSD 9.99.81 evbarm-earmv6hf 202104010300Z rpi.img from nyftp.
- openssh-8.5
- openssl-1.1.1k
- unbound-1.13.1
- Raspberry Pi [0-3] have been supported in big-endian mode (Rin Okuyama)
XXX: should test big-endian image and pkgsrc
#55505 RaspberryPi3A+ can't find Wi-Fi module
- RPI4: testing on NetBSD/aarch64
Changes from 2021-02-27 version
bozohttpd-20210227 libssh-39.0 NetBSD-9.99.81 openssh-8.5
opensshd-8.5 openssl-1.1.1k sh-20181212-20210401000301Z
unbound-1.13.1 userland-NetBSD-9.99.81/evbarm
gd-2.3.2 git-base-2.30.2nb1 gnutls-3.7.1 libcups-2.3.3op2

ruby26-native-package-installer-1.1.1 ruby26-red-colors-0.1.1
Need Checking:
- bluetooth keyboard/mouse setting
- RPI camera module
Got Reports:
- HDMI output works very well however I wanted to change the resolution
into 800x600 both tty console and X Window graphical modes. Where should I
change it? As config.txt with hdmi_group=1, hdmi_mode=1 or hdmi_safe=1
didn't work.
- USB input devices seem to work fine as well with my USB keyboard, mouse
and barcode reader. However for my USB output device such as my Xprinter
printer didn't work with device driver of ulpt(4). It is detected
and working in OpenBSD.[9.0 release also occurs same error]
[ 195.114857] ulpt0 at uhub1 port 5 configuration 1 interface 0
[ 195.114857] ulpt0: Xprinter (0x0483) USB Printer P (0x5743), rev 2.00/1.00, addr 5, iclass 7/1
[ 195.114857] ulpt0: using bi-directional mode
rpi# cat myfile.txt > /dev/ulpt0
-sh: cannot create /dev/ulpt0: error 16
- with my Raspberry Pi 3B because every time I invoked this command
"shutdown -h now" a kernel panic occurs relating to usbd_transfer.
- After shutting-down leaving the system unplugged, this will
turn it's processor very very hot and seems harmful to the system.
pre-installed packages:
Keyboard layout checkpoint:
#encoding sv
#encoding us.swapctrlcaps
encoding jp
System Update:
mikutter support :
I make sample API key,pre-installed.
cd /root/.mikutter
git submodule add twitter_api_keys
RPI Wifi:
QEMU,with GENERIC kernel : vexpress to GENERIC: testing
- CPUFLAGS=-mfpu=neon-vfpv4 breaks some programs
- webkit24-gtk-2.4.11nb9 compile failed.
- dillo-3.0.5nb2 works with -O0
thanx Jared McNeill.
