    I’m keeping an eye on FreeBSD, pfSense.org and Reddit for ports towards pfSense on EspressoBIN.

    Waiting for boards getting to the right developers.

    Yesterday i received the 2GB espressobin, so testing can take of. Is there already some progress on the PFsense espressobin release? Until now it is pretty silent surrounding espressobin and pfSense. Is there a daily dev source with any testing / beta code? Until now I only find amd64 arch downloads ?!

    No updates yet, see the links in the first post. Hopefully sometimes tThompson/tkaiser will add support for pfsense to new SBCs. No word from them yet.

    It’s so weird that you guys are talking about pfSense on espresso.bin. 😉

    Yes it is, on pfSense forum one developer replies that no separate topic for espressobin should be created, because they are simply not working on it.

    I guess, one can wait forever for pfSense to be available on Espressobin platform. I simply don’t see it happening in the near future. Oppertunity missed there in my opinion.

    Step one is to get freeBSD running.

    Just like we did for the Armada 385 board we’re bringing to market now.

    It’s not ready yet. Still boots of USB, instead of eMMC.

    Will it ever be ready, there’ll be always something that needs work and/or attention?!

    It’s always a good idea to give the developers some air and time to make the product feel good.
    I know this, because I’ve been a software developer myself.
    Personally I’d prefer that the developers feel good about a release rather than meeting a certain deadline.

    -But you could of course send in a request to become a tester of the ExpressoBIN version and hope you’ll be accepted; being a tester will mean real hard work and writing detailed reports and performing tests and analyzing them – all the boring stuff that no end-user wants to do… 😉

    Awesome news! Looking forward to use pfSense on the bin. Now I need to wait to get it for my moving to complete …. in about 6 weeks.

    What are skills are needed to debug pfsense? At the level of kernel driver debugging?

    I have done debugging and modifications to openWRT solutions (ITUS Shield) as the creators stopped supporting it.

    @gonzopancho – let me know if you need help testing. I can spend some time.
