I'm not sure that the *BSD support the Linux filesystem.
Oh maybe I mistake for Linux not supporting *BSD fs...

OpenBSD can definitely mount ext2 according to its docs. Dunno about ext3 or ext4 mind you. But yeah, it's hard work mounting a berkley ffs on Linux AIUI. I don't know for sure whether you can boot OpenBSD from ext2, but since you can boot via GRUB I'd have thought so.

Ok for Ext2 !

"Firmware which provides an EFI interface with a Device Tree Blob (DTB)
file is required to boot. In most cases this is provided by images of
U-Boot 2016.07 or newer on SD/MMC devices or in SPI flash. If the
miniroot images are used, U-Boot and DTB files are distributed as part
of the miniroot disk images."

So maybe it's kind of chainloading needed here.

Hi all :)

I just stumbled on this file (yeah I know I'm two years late...):

https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/6.4/armv7/INSTALL.armv7
miniroot-am335x-64.fs
A miniroot filesystem to be used for
installation; BeagleBone version.
OpenBSD System Requirements and Supported Devices:
--------------------------------------------------

The following machines are targeted by OpenBSD/armv7:

BeagleBoard, BeagleBoard xM
Supported on-board devices:
standard serial port (com)
watchdog controller (omdog)
GPIO controller (omgpio)
For systems based on Texas Instruments OMAP and AMxxxx SoCs:

mount /dev/sdXi /mnt
cp /usr/local/share/u-boot/board/{MLO,u-boot.img} /mnt/
umount /mnt
Did you guys already try to boot OpenBSD on the Pandora ?

Cheers, Magic Sam

I think I tried a looong time ago, but only had a blank screen because a serial connection is needed.
At least this is what I remember.
