Another day (a particularly snowy day, here), another distro. This is not an official release; this image has been built by the FreeBSD community (and we do expect an official variant from www.freebsd.org at some point). But this is very useful early access if you’ve been wanting to play with FreeBSD on your Pi; be aware, though, that this is not a finished, stable port, so you may encounter some bugs. We’ve put it on the mirrors system, but we’d be very grateful if you could torrent and seed the image too. You’ll need an SD card of 4GB or more to dd this image. (And if you’re not sure what any of this means, that means this probably isn’t for you – yet!)

Alie Tan, who developed the image, says:

Features: Compiled with native FreeBSD GCC 4.2.1, tmps, 512MB swap partition with debug module off.

Keep in mind that this image is based on FreeBSD10-CURRENT which is the “bleeding edge” of FreeBSD development and not ready for production yet.

Apart from this, NetBSD developer also released a testing image for Raspberry Pi that can be found here:

Both of FreeBSD and NetBSD doesn’t have stable port yet, they are still having issue with network throughput, DMA, some packages not compile-able, High speed SD CARD issue, etc.
