BSD on RPi? - BSD
FreeBSD
Has anyone tested BSD on the raspberry pi? Thought it would be cool to try!

Even with NetBSD? It runs on almost anything.

That's what I thought too! Haven't got a pi yet but thought it would be pretty awesome to get some form of BSD on it though!

If it runs, it runs NetBSD.

The Pi boots NetBSD 6.0 RC1 to multiuser. But no USB or Network yet, according to [this post](http://blog.netbsd.org/tnf/entry/announc..._candidate)

It can boot FreeBSD! Still needs more work for multi user tho:

Anybody tried out FreeBSD on the Pi yet? :) If it functions well, this would be absolutely perfect! I'm really looking to get into BSD (still haven't done it! D:) and running it on my Pi would be ideal.

EDIT: I just realised the below on NetBSD's blog:

Quote:Add initial support for the RaspberryPI, sufficient to boot multiuser and access the gpio header pins via serial console, but no USB or network support yet

So perhaps that answers the "if it functions well" part of my post :P

I can't wait until the project actually gets finished, I will be installing this the second it's out.

I won't. Too broke/don't see the appeal.

When it's considered stable, you don't see the appeal in placing a PI inside a bare bones Mac laptop? ;D
I'm getting a Pi soon and will definitely try this out when it is finished!
