Thread: Freebsd in Qemu VM

  1. Freebsd in Qemu VM

    Hi all,

    I've got a x86_64 Linux host system and I'm trying to get FreeBSD
    running in a Qemu VM (qemu version 0.9.1). I downloaded
    7.0-RELEASE-amd64-bootonly.iso and first attempt to boot results in:

    ath_hal: 0.9.2.3 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5215, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
    hptrr: HPT RocketRAID controller driver v1.1 (Feb 28 2008 10:34:18)

    Fatal trap 9: general protection fault while in kernel mode
    cpuid = 0; apic id = 00

    So I tried running qemu with -no-acpi and then it boots further but
    hangs with

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/md0

    Third try to boot I chose the verbose loggin option and I get

    Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/md0
    start_init: trying /sbin/init
    start_init: trying /sbin/oinit
    start_init: trying /sbin/init.back
    start_init: trying /rescue/init
    start_init: trying /stand/sysinstall

    which suggests the kernel is looking for but not finding init.

    Any clues to why this isn't working.

    TIA,
    Erik

    BTW, I already have an amd64 Linux system running under Qemu as
    well as an i386 FreeBSD. Only the amd64 FreeBSD install is giving
    problems.
