Description Minsoo Choo 2020-09-29 03:55:57 UTC
Document: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/virtualization.html


FreeBSD as a Guest on Parallels for Mac OS® X -> FreeBSD as a Guest on Parallels Dekstop for Mac for macOS®

FreeBSD as a Guest on Virtual PC for Windows® -> It's outdated and runs on until Windows 7, which Microsoft stopped further supports since January 2020.

We need FreeBSD as a Guest on VMware Workstation for Windows and Linux chapter.

FreeBSD as a Guest on VMware Fusion for Mac OS® and FreeBSD as a Guest on VMware Workstation for Windows and Linux -> after installation, install open-vm-tools via pkg or install xf86-input-vmmouse and xf86-video-vmware from x11-driver ports.

21.5. FreeBSD as a Guest on VirtualBox™ -> noted that the guest addition for FreeBSD is outdated, and the latest version(6.1.14) doesn't work when try boot from .iso
Comment 1 Minsoo Choo 2020-09-29 03:56:31 UTC
Outated guset additions still works.
Comment 2 Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2020-10-10 12:10:10 UTC
I'd prefer to keep this PR open. It raises valid concerns about the virtualization chapters in the handbook.
Comment 3 Minsoo Choo 2021-01-02 12:56:10 UTC
The document is not changed. Any other opinions?

It would be great if you could submit a patch. That would help us a lot. :)
Comment 5 Minsoo Choo 2021-01-05 06:39:30 UTC
We are discussing what should be added, deleted, or updated in FreeBSD Forum. There have been several arguments and it will take a long time to find a person who can edit the handbook and commit. I'm in family vacation now, so I don't have much time for contributing. I will have some free time from February. I'm so sorry about this.

I have a diff file and a new image, but I don't have an access to doc.git. How can I get it?
