FreeBSD/arm supports a wide array of ARM processors. Unlike Intel x86 systems, ARM processors are aimed at the embedded market and are packaged as a SoC (System on Chip). The integrated peripherals vary widely between the different offerings from different vendors.
This paper will expore the issues encountered in porting FreeBSD/arm to the AT91RM9200 processor. We will talk about the initial bring up of the board, device driver support for the SoC devices, and packaging concerns for an embedded processor. This paper may explore the issues around cross building a release.
