We are pleased to announce the Porting FreeBSD to the Genesi Efika MX SmartBook laptop and SmartTop nettop devices projects has completed! While many FreeBSD developers are working on ARM on embedded systems we feel it’s important to show FreeBSD running on ARM devices that people can easily touch and interact with. The port of FreeBSD to the Genesi Efika platforms makes that possible. It has also made possible Xorg running on many other ARM devices, including the Raspberry Pi.
Here is a set of directions for getting FreeBSD running on one of these incredibly inexpensive, and light weight, laptops for yourself: http://raybsd.blogspot.com/2013/02/easy-way-to-do-it-try-freebsd-on-efika.html
