OK. I understand. 

I tried a few years ago to get an edgerouter lite 3 working with
freebsd but failed. I'm using openbsd on it now.

I think it might be all a bit chicken-and-egg wrt mips. There's a
lot of mips64 hardware out there that's still working; the edgerouter is
not especially old. I had to carefully search at the time to discover 
whether *any* bsd worked with this hardware *at all*.

ah well. OpenBSD is still BSD ;) and the last time I looked it was fully
supported for this particular octeon mips64 device. (by that I mean
binary upgrades btwn OS versions).
