I start a new Virtual Machine, select FreeBSD as the OS, FreeBSD 6 as
specific version (from the VM Ware Fusion menus)
Then insert a FreeBSD 6.2 install disk in the drive and run through
the setup process.
Select use entire disk, no boot manager, .... install the "Developer"
no additional packages... the install runs to completion.
However, when, after installing the OS, I let the virtual machine
reboot, it hangs
after the POST without displaying the FreeBSD hardware probe messages.
No errors, nothing. It doesn't even get as far as the menu where you
or acpi disabled, etc.
I downloaded an image created by someone else of a VMWare Workstation
image, and that
runs on my Mac under VMWare Fusion, but I am unable to compile and
install VMWare Tools
("make all" succeeded, but "make install" failed with a file not found
If you like I can copy/paste those errors in a seperate email. I don't
understand why I cannot create
my own bootable VMWare image though ?
