as I reported this morning, for me is not working. My system is a
DELL D630 laptop with 3Gb of RAM. i386/CURRENT update today :
FreeBSD gusiport 8.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 8.0-CURRENT #41: Tue May 19
14:24:05 CEST 2009
gus at gusiport:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/CUSTOM i386
Last version fixed the problem with the kernel module not being
detected the second time vbox is run, but I still have vbox booting the
virtual machine in wit a gray screen. I've observed the machine is
supposed to be running, but making top shows no activity. Also tried
VBoxSDL -startvm win (win is the id given to the vmachine, yes I know,
it took me little time to give it a name :) ) and the virtual machine
shows a black screen. No CPU activity at all. Tried disabling VT-x/AMD-v
extensions (the laptop supports VT-x) still no go.
Anything I can try ?
