FreeBSD Bugzilla – Bug 94250
[NEW PORT] sysutils/cromwell: Linux/FreeBSD BIOS for the Microsoft Xbox
Last modified: 2006-03-15 10:33:26 UTC
This port will build the Linux/FreeBSD BIOS Cromwell, which can be
flashed to the EEPROM using the sysutils/raincoat port or netbooted.
It includes a patch to enable loading the kernel from UFS partitions.
I'll take it.
I tested it here and it built fine on 5.x. Any other reason to mark
it as BROKEN in this version?

I guess you are right; the reason I marked it as broken is that FreeBSD
5.x will never run on the Xbox.
However, as this only *builds* an image (and does not install it), it
may be useful to build the Cromwell on another box, so this BROKEN line
should indeed be removed.
Thanks for your testing!
