I was wondering if it is possible for a port to be made for Trisquel to run on the RaspberryPi 2 Model B as the new Pi has much more processing power than its predecessors.

Or is it possible for Trisquel Mini to simply run in Raspberry Pi 2 Model B as if currently?

There is no ARM port of Trisquel that I know of.

Raspberry Pi can't be used in freedom according to https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers

Aaah man. Well hey. I don't mind just using the console interface. For now, we can try get a CPU centric port going and temporarily forget aboutbthe nonfree GPU problem, and not inlcide the nonfree GPU drivers until a laterbstage when that can be ported. I just want a free Pi. :D

Cause I <3 Free Software.

sadly i think the pi uses the gpu to start the main cpu so theres no way to run it with all libre software

but there is a computer called the beaglebone that seems good
that you can run with entirely libre software

and its a higher spec than the pi:

I think it's time we from a project for this. Maybe like a Free Hardware Foundation that can design and manufacture Free Hardware.

I mean this would be perfect. I mean besides small hardware like the Pi, Free Hardware like the Pemote Yeelong is apparently not for sale anymore.

Given your example, it looks like your definition of "free hardware" is "hardware that works with free software". The Free Software Foundation already cares about that.

Hello Calinou. We meet again I see. This time not on GNU Social. Lol.

What is the challenge in running Trisquel in an ARM architecture?

First, we need more free-as-in-freedom drivers, then we can ask to Rubén and the others to port the majority of the packages to ARM.

I mean, just look at the poor state of Replicant because of the lack of drivers. You can argue that more free-as-in-freedom dristros with ARM support will encourage the development of more and better drivers. But we need to think. It really worth it? It's ARM really that important? What is the benefit/cost ratio?

The majority of packages are already ported to ARM, as Debian and Ubuntu support ARM.

The real answer is that Ruben just hasn't done it, so someone else should do it, if he/she wants to. There are ARM computers which run with free software, even if something like the GPU may not work.

The challenges are as anything else - you have to spend time doing it.

The benefit is they are cheap PCs and then that means people like me that would like Free Software on it.

Thank you all for the responses.

I do however think that this Port would mean a lot and would help many.

Wouldn't this new development (http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/11/17/raspberry-pis-videocore-4-gpu-driver-added-to-linux-mainline-in-kernel-4-4/) change the freedom situation of the Raspberry Pi?
