https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=265549 Bug ID: 265549 Summary: Vultr Q35 hangs while booting during virtio-random initialization Product: Base System Version: 13.1-RELEASE Hardware: amd64 OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: kern Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: email@example.com Created attachment 235596 --> https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=235596&action=edit FreeBSD 13.1 Installer hang at virtio-random Vultr QEMU Q35 hangs while booting during virtio-random initialization on FreeBSD-13.1-RELEASE and FreeBSD-14.0-CURRENT. Vultr engineering has temporarily worked around it by blacklisting virtio-random on their FreeBSD images and/or falling back to i440fx virtualization. This requires that users installing FreeBSD from their own known media have to do one of the following: * modify their ISO to blacklist virtio-random * do the kludge of installing a Vultr FreeBSD image (which defaults to i440fx emulation) and then reinstalling via an attached ISO image. * setting 'hint.vtrnd.0.disabled=1’ at the loader prompt and booting. To quickly spin up a VM I use a raw image from the FreeBSD images -- customized with pre-loaded configuration -- but it has the exact same hang unless I modify it to blacklist virtio-random. This bug comment has information from Vultr engineering corroborating the issue. bug #254513, comment #c32 I’ve attached images of the FreeBSD-13.1 RELEASE via the VNC console, first from the boot installer hang and subsequently from single user with a subsequent kldload virtio-random which causes an immediate hang. Apologize for the images but the Vultr console doesn’t allow cut and paste of the screen. Please let me know if I can provide any other information. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
