Description techtonik 2011-11-10 09:50:09 UTC
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization-guest.html badly needs ToC and instructions for QEMU.


qemu-img create -f qcow2 freebsd.qcow 2G
wget ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/i386/ISO-IMAGES/9.0/FreeBSD-9.0-RC1-i386-bootonly.iso
qemu -hda freebsd.qcow -cdrom FreeBSD-9.0-RC1-i386-bootonly.iso -boot d -m 256
qemu -hda freebsd.qcow -m 256

(or you can use `qemu-kvm` binary, but that failed for me)

batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.
- Affects Base System OR Documentation


Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.

qemu-kvm isn't relevant for FreeBSD since only Linux supports KVM - there _was_ a KVM kernel module for FreeBSD at one point but it wasn't maintained (https://www.freshports.org/emulators/kqemu-kmod/ notes its removal in 2016).
