I am very proud to announce that FreeBSD Vagrant images are now available.

Usage:
For VMWare, create a Vagrantfile like so:
Code:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.guest = :freebsd
  config.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", id: "vagrant-root", disabled: true
  config.vm.box = "freebsd/FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT"
  config.ssh.shell = "sh"

  config.vm.provider :vmware_fusion do |v|
    v.vmx["memsize"] = "1024"
    v.vmx["numvcpus"] = "1"
  end
end
For VirtualBox, create a Vagrantfile like:
Code:
Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|
  config.vm.guest = :freebsd
  config.vm.synced_folder ".", "/vagrant", id: "vagrant-root", disabled: true
  config.vm.box = "freebsd/FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT"
  config.ssh.shell = "sh"
  config.vm.base_mac = "080027D14C66"

  config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |vb|
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "1024"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--cpus", "1"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--hwvirtex", "on"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--audio", "none"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--nictype1", "virtio"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--nictype2", "virtio"]
  end
end
Then run:
vagrant up

On first boot the machine will come up and install missing pkgs and run freebsd-update if needed. Note that this can take a few minutes. If it fails to boot try using: vagrant up --no-destroy-on-error. On my 2004 iMac with a spinning disk it takes just over 3 minutes. On my mid62014 MBP with a SSD it takes about 1 minute and 45 seconds. In the future we will reevaluate installing the missing packages on boot vs when the VM is built.

Note that you can replace `FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT’ with `FreeBSD-10.0-RC2′ or others. To see a full list of versions available, check the Hashicorp Atlas website here: https://atlas.hashicorp.com/FreeBSD/

Going forward:
  • All snapshots will include Vagrant images, so weekly updates of FreeBSD -STABLE branches and -CURRENT.
  • All future releases will including Vagrant images.
