Side note comparing with rpi2 (armv7, cortex-A7): A rpi3 (aarch64, cortex-A53) got a couple of the messages during a build of the same port: devel/cmake . In this case it is emmc attached to the microsd-card slot via an adapter, instead of a USB SSD stick. === Mark Millard markmi at dsl-only.net _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
