A virtualbox version for FreeBsd

Alexander Eichner at SUN.com came out with a message to the FreeBSD community that there is a virtualbox version available for thier beloved Operating System.

This is an effort to make VirtualBox the “most portable platform for virtualization”.

The FreeBSD version runs, but has not yet got all possibilities the other OS version can do, the following options are working:

Working:

  • Software virtualization
  • The VirtualBox QT4 frontend
  • Sound through OSS
  • NAT networking

And these are being worked on:

  • Bridged and host only networking (the required kernel drivers are missing)
  • USB – Installer
  • OpenGL support
  • ACPI
  • Host CD/DVD access
  • Host serial support

Also these bugs en limitations are known (for now):

  • Unloading the kernel driver panics the host
  • Hardware assisted virtualization doesn’t work reliable yet
  • VBoxSVC needs to be started manually
  • proc needs to be mounted

You can find some screenshot at the website of virtualbox.
