netbsd i386 works with vortex86mx processor

Hi folks,
while current Linux supports mainly i686 only (and that
makes it not start kernel on vortex86), the NetBSD support
for i486 is enough to bring machines with vortex86 CPU to
life. I bought one for a mail server and another one as a
musicbox with mpd. however I tested it with X and it worked
flawlessly, I was able to install gnome2 full desktop and
use it  (I could even watch avis and xvids, though it was
too slow for flash) on a 993Mhz vortex86mx. Thanks for your
marvelous work.

Raspberry Pi installation instructions in Dutch?

Hello,

I don't have a Pi myself and I am not really following all Pi related
websites, but I am trying to convince a local Linux/Open Source
foundation here in the South of the Netherlands to use Netbsd for some
educational projects on the Pi.

The foundation will receive a few exemplars on loan and might get more
exemplars on completion of some educational projects for primary
schools.

I wonder if there is a ready-made wiki page in Dutch, specific for the
evbarm-earmv6hf port.

I myself, who am not a fluent Dutch speaker, have come out with an
initial page with links to other resources. If somebody is interested
and can develop this further, please let me know, on or off list as
you wish. Bear in mind that I haven't tried this myself, so it's blind
leading the blind here.

The initial text follows, and for those who are not interested, sorry
for the noise:

==============================================
1) Dit zijn de algemene instructies:
http://wiki.netbsd.org/ports/evbarm/raspberry_pi/

maar _pas op_: de laatse versie is niet 'evbarm', maar
'evbarm-earmhf'. Dit bedoelt dat meer programmas mogen gecompileerd
worden uit de 'pkgsrc' sources (ingewikkeld? Ja, welkom op bsd!)
