            Bug ID: 236191
           Summary: FreeBSD Pine64 images won't actually boot on a Pine64
           Product: Base System
           Version: 12.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: arm64
                OS: Any

          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---

This is moving [this forum
across to make it a bug report:

I recently got a Pine64 LTS in order to try the official FreeBSD images ,
specifically FreeBSD-12.0-RELEASE-arm64-aarch64-PINE64-LTS. This goes through
part of the boot process (the information scrolls off the screen too fast to
see where it gets to, it's perhaps 3-4 screenfuls) and then the screen goes
blank and the keyboard goes dead. There are occasional bursts of network
traffic of some kind, but nothing useful such as the device requesting a DHCP
address, and there's no difference when the USB keyboard and/or network cable
are unplugged.

I retried with the current snapshot,
FreeBSD-13.0-CURRENT-arm64-aarch64-PINE64-LTS-20190207-r343862, but got the
same result. Others have reported similar issues, as per this thread in the
Pine forums. Note that I can't use the RaspBSD image (which in any case seems
to have the same issue) because that's for Pine64, not Pine64-LTS.

Does anyone know whether there's any official image for Pine64-LTS that works?
Failing that, is there anything I can do to diagnose the problem?
