@braunne @jason123santa OpenBSD has SMP support, my RaspberryPI 3 shows 4 cpus.

OpenBSD did disable SMT (hyperthreading on x86) by default for security reasons due to spectre/meltdown, but it can be re-enabled.

@jason123santa @werwolf @braunne Their neither better or worse than each other, they're different ecosystems with their owns strengths and weaknesses.

Linux has the strength of popularity and it's much easier to find resources and people who are knowledgeable about the system.

The *BSDs are more centralized and the kernel and userspace are developed together.

I prefer OpenBSD because of it's focus on security and clean code,

@braunne Thanks for the link, after I realized pihole can't run natively on OpenBSD I started looking at native alternatives and will check this out.

Figured out how to use a PocketCHIP as a serial console and booting OpenBSD 6.8.

RPI is powered from 5v coming off the CHIP battery, so both are now portable. :openbsd: :raspberrypi:

@mike don't know if there's any close to you, but MicroCenter is good alternative.

Reminds of of when Fry's was in it's heyday, and plenty of RasperryPis and price matching.

Quick post on setting up Pocket C.H.I.P., updating to Debian 10, fixing keymap and running a different window manager.

Why isn't xterm starting? Syntax in ~/.fluxbox/startup is correct.

oh, might help if I install it.

chip@chip:~/.fluxbox$ xterm
-bash: xterm: command not found

@Juliusdelta ah nice, I haven't seen the ergodox config before. I've only done QMK directly since I have a couple of boards where I attempt to keep them consistent.

Here's my space-hold and double tap toggle config (TT),

@Juliusdelta @rzg arrows mapped to HJKL is amazing.

I have QMK setup with spacebar set to activate that layer on hold and a doubletap on another key locks the layer on/off to turn them into semi-permanent arrows for scrolling longer pages without keeping space held down.

@kelbot I have a similar eink display on a pi0 that I use for a Pwnagotchi.

They did a good job on tuning the display to show a good amount of info in a limit space but nothing interactive.

@jason123santa it's running well so far, haven't had much time with it since I finished it up late last night.

Was planning to setup pihole on it but pihole is only Linux, so going to follow this guide and setup Debian in a VM on it,

@jason123santa Don't know about NetBSD. I did install FreeBSD on an older RPI since OpenBSD doesn't support armv6 and it was easier, just flash the system image and boot without going through the installer.

OpenBSD is only arm64 and requires a miniroot.img boot followed by the standard install process via the console. So a bit more work.

While waiting for my C.H.I.P. to update last night, installed OpenBSD 6.8 on a spare RPI3 and going to have it replace my older RPI that's running pihole. :openbsd: :raspberrypi:

Multiprocessor machine; using instead of bsd.
Relinking to create unique kernel...

@makeworld @kelbot so it's not quite a Dreamcast + NetBSD, but amphora on RPI B to a Sony Trinitron 9in running Raspbian10 and a prop Dreamcast keyboard. :debian: :raspberrypi:

Figured the Rasperry Pi of Anguish was a fitting site to render.

@makeworld @kelbot now I kind of want to boot my Dreamcast into NetBSD and run amfora on a CRT.
