Success with Vbox: Re: How to Install from Live iso

I took a step back and decided to move over to vbox for all my VMs. It has so many good features, and above all GhostBSD works out of the box! While I did not receive any responses on this forum for my recent post, it did help to focus me on a solution. Banging my head on qemu will not fix it. I now...

Re: How to Install from Live iso

Well I waited 2 years to try this again. I was inspired by the fact that I got GhostBSD running on a VirtualBox guest, whose hypervisor is (unfortunately) running on Win10. GhostBSD runs so nicely, I figured it was time to try again on qemu/kvm. I really wanted to make this my go-to OS. Here are my ...

Re: How to Install from Live iso

Yes, I did try that. But, I tried it again, and when the login prompt appeared after the reboot, and I waited, the terminal screen went completely blank, with a small grey 'cursor' like mark at the top left corner. Nothing happens. Hitting the enter key does nothing. That's the story so far. Btw, th...

video=hyperv_fb setting for guest hyperv resolution

For rpm, deb, and arch linux, if one includes video=hyperv_fb:hhhhxvvvv (where hhhh is horizontal pixels, vvvv is vertical pixels), then when booting, the hyperv window resizes itself to hhhh x vvvv. This setting is entered on the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line in grub.cfg. It is very useful, because one d...

Re: How to Install from Live iso

More data. While booting up GhostBSD 4.0, I noticed that when the boot was done it goes to a login prompt. Very shortly after that the system auto logs in and the desktop starts up. For GhostBSD 10.1 it gets to this same login prompt, but then just sits there. I thought I had to log in manually and ...

Re: How to Install from Live iso

FYI, I installed GhostBSD 4.0 via the live session. It failed the first time re some kind of mount problem. So I redid it but launching the installer via sudo gbi, and it installed successfully!! << kudos to you re this trick. It must be noted that I experience the exact same problem with FreeBSD 10...

Re: How to Install from Live iso

OK, looking at the logs, install-log-18.PNG file shows the failure.
It is at the line where:
physical address = 0xf8000000, size = 4194304

Bus error at address 0x4a40d0

The live version does not have this error, and carries on to a successful xorg launch.

Re: How to Install from Live iso

OK, I did the above. First, I created a new clean VM, live first, then install. Options: Did not check MBR; used fish. Captured the info for live session. Captured the info for install session. I did not take on the challenge of getting file sharing working so I simply did screen captures. (my bad, ...
