I am trying to install a Linux VM for testing under VirtualBox, I configure the VM indicating Linux OS and loading ISO install cd in cdrom virtual unit.
The VM starts but the screen remains black forever, it doesn't appear any BIOS or cdrom boot menu.
I have changed some parameters like VGA card...
In a fresh install of FreeBSD-13.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso in VirtualBox 6.1.32 (Ubuntu 20.04.4 host), I wanted to increase the console dimensions and console font size, so I followed the instructions here: How to increase vt console size in VirtualBox image.
(Note: that post uses the FreeBSD...
Hi, here is my error on startup any vm with virtualbox.
here is my rc.conf:
Below, why are there log entries for PIIX3 when the controller is set to PIIX4?
I have been trying (amongst other things) to boot this 12.⋯ guest temporarily in safe mode. Neither of the commands below seem to be effective – note the multiple CPUs, above, in htop:
When I try to install Extension Pack VirtualBox:
I'm trying to build a multi-router setup in VirtualBox using FreeBSD machines as the routers. I have two VMs, router-1 and router-2, which are on the same subnet and are able to ping one another.
router-1 has a bridge interface with the host machine and is able to ping the wider internet. It...
Following enlargement of the disk, a boot in single user mode:
– first, I enlarged the disk without using the disclosure triangle. This did not have the required effect, so I enlarged the differencing .vdi
These are the steps taken to reproduce the error (host is Windows 10):
Open Oracle Virtualbox and create a new virtual machine, FreeBSD 64 bits. Choose to add virtual drive later.
Download prebuilt image disk "FreeBSD-13.0-RELEASE-amd64.vhd".
Attach the disk to the virtual machine.
Excuse me if this is a noobish question, but this is the first time I'm using FreeBSD after purchasing a QOTOM and installing pfSense on it.
Context: The QOTOM PC I bought for my home office has shiny specs, and I intended to use the spare power to use it as my Kubernetes master (but without...
Why not ZFS by default?
Images are compressed before distribution. I assume that compression is very effective for:
non-used space (free, never used) in file systems
non-used swap space.
Why is there so little free space in the file system for the base OS?
Why is so little of the disk given...
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254458#c5 offers some detail.
Bugged guests include the FreeBSD-provided virtual disk for FreeBSD 13.0-RC5.
For me, the bug seems to be consistently reproducible with a FreeBSD 14.0-CURRENT host.
Please, can anyone tell whether the bug is...
I've been using FreeBSD and VirtualBox for many years to run Windows guest in a safe environment. The guest systems run normally in the bridged mode, until including FreeBSD 11.4 I had no problems to do this. But with starting with FreeBSD 12, the VMs are running perfectly in NAT mode...
I'm running Virtualbox 5.2.44_3 on FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE and everything is working fine until I create a jail and use vnets for the networking on the jails. I'm using iocage for jail management.
I've followed the handbook for setting up a bridged interface for jails and my bridge interface...
I don't have any new computer for FreeBSD. So I use virtual machine on Windows 10. The problem is that the latest virtualbox-ose-additions is for Virtualbox 5.x and guest additions for vmware is discontinued, so vmware says that I should use open vm tools. However, it only supports Freebsd 11...
I'm running a Freebsd 12.1 in virtualbox on a win10 host. Guest additions, kmod installed.
Followed the handbook; https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-guest-virtualbox.html
Mounted a shared folder.
Files pre-existing in that folder can be deleted. New files can be created...
I just created a video tutorial for doing a base install of FreeBSD 12.1 in VirtualBox as part of a set of tutorials for my students taking systems programming. Here's the link for the curious, and or the critics: Installing a basic FreeBSD 12.1 system in VritualBox. Warning, it's 53 minutes...
I am playing around with VMs and installed 12.1 in VirtualBox 6.1.12 on MacOS 10.14.6 (Mojave). I installed FreeBSD (surely there's a shorthand for this - maybe fbsd?) 12.1 and fired it up with EFI checked (EFI video console is more reasonable). I did a base install and booted into FreeBSD. I...
