Hi!

Hi,



Can someone please explain the rationale behind not providing a distribution
for arm based systems, as it seems somewhat illogical to me that
distributions are available for ia64, powerpc, sparc64 (see
http://www.freebsd.org/where.html) which are considered Tier 2 architectures
while the official reason for arm being a Tier 2 architecture is the fact
that no distribution is provided for it (see
http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/arm.html).

 

It's happening. It may not happen for 10.0 but the vague plan is to get
generic MIPS/ARM install environments with customisations for how you get
the image onto various devices.
