I got a VisionFive2 SBC laying arround, so if this is of interest for
the devs too I can ship it somewhere.

pi comes out of china.
Here is some interesting read I googled the other day:
Risc-v is really taking off! I do hope that sifive can give us
something of value, because I heard about this Milk-V computer giving
Intel/Sifive a run for their products.
That said I'm hoping on invest in another risc-v computer by next
year. Support for it will probably lack and I'll run linux on it for
a while perhaps.

Hi Mike I've volunteered to coordinate a purchase of Mango Pi
to get them into OpenBSD developers working on riscv64
platform. It has been awhile but I used to facilitate getting
h/w into OpenBSD developers hands on a semi-regular basis. diana
Great. I don't know who would be interested, so I'd wait to let
them speak up before ordering anything. -ml

Hi *, I'm back for the moment. I was wondering who
has a Allwinner D1 riscv64 SBC? This is the Mango
Pi SBC. I have one which has linux on it currently
but I'm trying to boot OpenBSD on it. But I'm
fairly lazy and haven't done much with this
lately. I can get to the riscv64 loader but when
it loads the kernel, it goes blind. So there is
more than just getting the GPIO pins configured
which I think I have been able to adjust. I use a
QEMU-based riscv64 emulation to compile kernels
which is slow but this SBC isn't much faster
either (1000 Mhz it claims). I use this u-boot
directive to get into the boot loader: setenv
bootobsd 'load mmc 0:1 0x4FA00000
; load mmc 0:f 0x40080000
/EFI/OpenBSD/BOOTRISCV64.EFI ; bootefi 0x40080000
0x4FA00000' followed by a: run bootobsd I am
unsure how to save this though in the u-boot
itself. Any hints would be appreciated. I think we
need a specific riscv mailing list for this sort
of stuff perhaps it's too technical for misc.
Regarding to the nostradamus stuff of someone from
chicago (Re: A couple of Questions) , check out
"1st wave" and "cade foster" on youtube (reruns),
this will feed you more ideas. my personal opinion
is that time travel of information is possible,
contributing to major headaches when events get
changed (for the prometheus seers). Back to
"reality" I'm looking for a group of people to
help getting the mango pi working. I'm hampered by
pride to ask knowledged people and these people
have their own directions and I don't want to
bother their efforts. The more we are the more we
could possibly get something done.
The best way to get that done is to get hardware in
the hands of developer(s). Wishing on misc@ is likely
not going to get anyone interested. Check the commit
logs for people working in this area, reach out to
them, and see if they are interested in helping. -ml
Hi Mike, Thanks. This will take a bit, I'm in talks to get
a new job soon, which will put extra money in my pocket.
Then I may be able to get a handful of these perhaps. Do
you still keep tabs on Shivam, Mars, Brian, and Wenyan?
Are they still interested in riscv64 after the initial
port with yours and Dales guidance? I think I paid
something like 30 EUR for a Mango Pi from AliExpress
buying 4 would work but I can only do this when I have
secured the job. Best Regards, -peter -- Over thirty years
