There is no Beaglebone release for 12.2.

As per the release errata: https://www.freebsd.org/releases/12.2R/errata.html#open-issues
I have a Beaglebone white and am happy to help test if given some pointers on where to start.
Please see the third bullet point here:
I don't understand why this was closed out. I didn't see any bug reports mentioning what the bug was or if there was a fix. The other two errata points (which I already linked to) had corresponding FreeBSD bug references.
It sounds like there is now an image available: https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/snapshots/ISO-IMAGES/12.2/FreeBSD-12.2-STABLE-arm-armv7-BEAGLEBONE-20201029-r367116.img.xz
I can definitely test this.
It was closed because there will not be a BEAGLEBONE image for 12.2-RELEASE. If you can test the 12.2-STABLE image you linked to, that would be great. As I understand it, the excessively-long I/O issue is not present in 13-CURRENT, but it would definitely be nice to have this tracked down before 12.3-RELEASE when the time comes.
Right, I understand 12.2-RELEASE won't have a Beaglebone release. This is more about the slow I/O issue.
It's definitely still happening, I pulled down the 12.2-STABLE image and booting probably took two hours.
The Right People(tm) are already involved in this. :)
Re-open, adding mmel@ to CC.
There's something messed up with the clock, I don't think it has anything to do with the SD infrastructure.
If I run `date` and wait ten seconds to run `date` again, the time is the same. dd reading from the SD card thinks it's instantaneous, even though it takes a good minute or two to read a gig and write it to /dev/null. I think the clock issue is messing with the scheduler.
Now I presume there's no RTC on these, but whatever "clock" interface we are using seems to be the issue.
My bad, I think that's what you all already concluded. I'll leave you to it but let me know if there's anything I can test.
Hi everyone. Any update on this? Thank you!
We do not retroactively build releases. Provided the issue(s) have been resolved, there will be BeagleBone images for 12.3.
