ERROR: Required auditdistd user is missing, see /usr/src/UPDATING.
*** [installcheck_UGID] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/home/czanik/efika_mx/efika_mx.
*** [installworld] Error code 1
There is no trace of "auditdistd" in /usr/src/UPDATING. Does it mean, that I should be running on FreeBSD 10 to be able to test the EFIKA MX port?
Are you try to just add that user?
If it's not works, look please into freebsd-current mailing list, I remember there was some discussion on that breakage.
It is fixed already in HEAD, but I'm not ready to do merge from HEAD now. Hope will be able soon.

Now we have U-Boot for both Smarttop/Smartbook with video output support.

I was compiling on 9.1 release, which obviously does not have that user. I'm trying to to update my 10-snapshot hoping that it will be a bit more stable...

OK. I moved from vmware to virtualbox (FreeBSD seems to run more stable on it), and disabled most debug options in the kernel config, so now I have a stable build environment based on FreeBSD 10.

While compiling the EFIKA sources I'm reading the instructions again. As I don't have USB Ethernet so I need to boot from the internal PATA. The doc writes, that it needs to be a FAT partition. As normally I use Linux on my machines, it's an EXT3 partition right now. Can your u-boot handle this?

IIRC, I don't remove ext2fs support, so it must works.
See how it is can be done in the U-Boot Doc:

Dead end :-( Everything is compiled, but I can't access my USB key or SD card from the virtual machine. And I can't create a UFS filesystem from Linux...

Hi! I have a news for you :)
here is image for SD card http://people.freebsd.org/~ray/efika_mx ... ard.img.xz
Just unpack and put it into SD image with dd
unxz Efika_MX_SD_card.img.xz
dd if=Efika_MX_SD_card.img of=/dev/da0 bs=64k

USB flash image http://people.freebsd.org/~ray/efika_mx ... ash.img.xz
unxz Efika_MX_USB_Flash.img.xz
dd if=Efika_MX_USB_Flash.img of=/dev/da4 bs=2m

PLEASE CHECK DEVICE NAMES, I ASSUME: da0 is SD card, da4 - USB flash. So replace it with appropriate.

It's don't have XOrg in the image, but allow to start to play with it.

Hello everyone!

Porting FreeBSD to Efika MX Platforms Project Completed FreeBSD Foundation. So anybody who likes Genesi products, ARM and FreeBSD can try now FreeBSD on Genesi Efika MX Smartbook and Genesi Efika MX Smarttop.
There is still many things to do. But now it's usable and anyone can try yourself in FreeBSD/ARM programming and make life more colorful for yourself and many other.

Please read details on how to run at raybsd blog

Feel free to ask questions ray at freebsd dot org.

Thanks Genesi!
Thanks FreeBSD foundation and whole FreeBSD community!
Thanks Linux and other developers!

WBW

I must say i cannot get those images to boot, ive been dd'ing it from linux onto a MMC card and the usb stick. (Smartbook)

(sorry for threat necro somewhat.. but i must have BSD on that thing :) )
