look I don't have any intentions to quarrel. I just can't repeat your problems.
This is what I did on the VirtualBox host installed on Slackware linux (-CURRENT): fs: ext4
1) downloaded FreeBSD-14.0-CURRENT-amd64.vmdk.xz
converted to vdi:
VBoxManage clonehd --format VDI FreeBSD-14.0-CURRENT-amd64.vmdk FreeBSD-14.0-CURRENT-amd64.vdi
resized to 57.7GB, expanded memory to 14GB
1a) booted up VM client and run
- gpart recover ada0
- service growfs start
2) after FreeBSD-14-CURRENT VM Client loaded I
3) added user
4) installed some software: sudo, nano, basic plasma5
5) because package virtualbox-ose-additions not available for FreeBSD-14, I corrected manually screen resolution to fit full screen:1920x972.
6) modified /etc/rc.conf
7) created/modified /boot/loader.conf
8) rebooted FreeBSD-14-CURRENT VM client
9) picture attached
10) I don't mind crashing VM client. I just don't know how: some info is confusing though
- I am not loosing any files on UFS as you suggested here:
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...
- emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions not available for -CURRENT so I can't confirm this, but you had the same issues with images for FreeBSD-13 and FreeBSD-14-CURRENT so I doubt that emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions is an issue
a mistake No problem :-) your https://forums.FreeBSD.org/threads/80655/post-515437 was otherwise extraordinarily helpful. From a comparison of these two: releng/13.0 https://cgit.freebsd.org/src/log/sbin/fsck_ffs/fsck.h?h=releng/13.0 main...
So, If you can tell me how can I crash FreeBSD-14-CURRENT VB client installed from vmdk converted to vdi with UFS filesystem, I will be glad to try and confirm your findings.
Someone mentioned Host messing up with client FS: I suggest reading up about hypervisors.
One question: are you trying to run nested VM clients?
