The Raspberry Pi Foundation has deployed a new CDN-based image distribution system. As a result of this, this site is no longer being updated.



This is not an official release; this image has been built by the FreeBSD community (and we do expect an official variant from at some point). But this is very useful early access if you’ve been wanting to play with FreeBSD on your Pi; be aware, though, that this is not a finished, stable port, so you may encounter some bugs. You’ll need an SD card of 4GB or more to dd this image to.

Additional notes

Alie Tan, who developed the image, says:

Features: Compiled with native FreeBSD GCC 4.2.1, tmps, 512MB swap partition with debug module off. Keep in mind that this image is based on FreeBSD10-CURRENT which is the “bleeding edge” of FreeBSD development and not ready for production yet.

Apart from this, NetBSD developer also released a testing image for Raspberry Pi that can be found here:

Both of FreeBSD and NetBSD doesn’t have stable port yet, they are still having issue with network throughput, DMA, some packages not compile-able, High speed SD CARD issue, etc.
