[CentOS-virt] Loading a FreeBSD 10 VM on QEMU-KVM..

  Hello Juerg,


I wasn't sure what all was useful, so I figured I would respond back and
post whatever was asked for that might help with sorting this out.   


Here is the rundown on a few details on the setup.   First off the hardware
is an HP DL580G5 server with 4x E7450 Xeon CPU's in the server and 32G RAM,
to a SAS array.   The CentOS OS should be current as of this message, as I
have applied all the latest updates using yum.   I show the kernel to be
Linux version 2.6.32-431.3.1.el6.x86_64 and the qemm-kv version is showing
as QEMU PC emulator version 0.12.1 (qemu-kvm-    


The FreeBSD release I am trying to load on a guest VM is the production
release of FreeBSD 10, the ISO grabbed from the master site is
FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso, and the virt-install command I am
using is:


virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n FBSD-10_vm1 -r 2048 --vcpus=1
--disk path=/dev/vg_virtual/FBSD-10_vm1 -c
/images/FreeBSD-10.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso --graphics
vnc,port=5920,listen= --noautoconsole --os-variant freebsd8
--accelerate --network=bridge:br0 --network=bridge:br1


I am specifying the freebsd8 flag, as I see no sign of a newer os-variant I
can use, so that was the closest to what I was trying to run.   As stated
before, if I try and boot FBSD 8 or 9, it works just fine, it's just when I
try and launch 10 that I have this issue.


If there is any other info that would be helpful, just let me know..

You haven't provided much information. Are you trying to boot a CD/DVD
downloaded from freebsd.org or a self-backed image? Can you post the KVM
commandline options that you're environment is using?
