Help needed: bsd inside KVM
Message ID:
I'm trying to build virtual BSD servers for Jenkins' benefit. However,
I'm not having much luck. The freebsd, netbsd and mirbsd installers all
crash and hang the vm during boot.

I'm trying to create the vm's with virt-install:

virt-install --name mirbsd-001 --os-type unix
--disk path=/dev/mapper/vg_kvmhost002-mirbsd--001
--virt-type kvm --ram 12288 --vcpus 4 -c /home/dkaarsemaker/cdrom10.iso 

For freebsd/netbsd I tried the same parameters except different
names/paths. The lvm volume is 10GB, which should be enough.

Any clues would be most welcome!
