So I recently discovered a tool to build Vagrant images called Packer. It allows you to script the install via key presses over VNC to automate the install of any OS. I am running on a rather fast machine (Core i7, 16GB of RAM, SSD), so I suspect there might be some lurking problems for people on slower machines due to timing of the commands.

Everything is available from my Github repo: https://github.com/so14k/packer-freebsd

To get started:

  • Install Vagrant and Packer
  • Clone the repo onto your machine
  • Build the Vagrant box: packer build template.json
  • Wait while it builds..
  • Start the Vagrant box: vagrant up
  • Start hacking: vagrant ssh

Give it a spin and let me know what you think!
