Good Winter everyone!
I have a fresh FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE installation with LXDE and I have installed Oracle VirtualBox 6.1.36 and I am experiencing the following error regardless of my User being added to the following groups "wheel,vboxusers".
I originally installed using:
# pkg install...
My goal is to set up a FreeBSD (64-bit) VM on VirtualBox.
I have downloaded the suggested FreeBSD release from https://www.freebsd.org/where/, resulting in a .vhd file.
When creating a new VM, I am asked to provide an ISO Image. I cannot choose the .vhd file directly,
so I imagine...
So I just need virtualization working with a graphical setup and network.
FreeBSD host with VBox
FreeBSD host with Bhyve
Long history short: with VBox the vm's don't even boot, just a black screen. And with bhyve (any setup), everything works fine beside network.
I'm using a...
Hi - I'm using FreeBSD 13.1 in VB 6.1.30. The guest is Win11 and I'm using shared folders. As a host, FreeBSD has access and I can create files (it's mounted rw obviously) but every file created is locked and cannot be removed, (text file busy) by the guest or the host. The guest needs to be...
I'm running FreeBSD 13.1, and have virtualbox-ose 6.1.36 installed from the pkg. The problem is that the VM manager (not the guest!)
cannot open any URLs. E.g. if I select Help -> VirtualBox Web Site, I get the message
Failed to open https://www.virtualbox.org. Make sure your desktop...
Sorry for this naïve question.
I am trying to boot a FreeBSD virtual machine by means of VirtualBox under Liinux Devuan (Debian without system D). I downloaded a FreeBSD dvd ISO and constructed a virtual machine for it. When I start the machine as muti-user FreeBSD boots. It finishes with a...
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...
