I've installed vmware3 on freebsd 6.0 from fresh ports. When configuring a new virtual machine, it tells me that all the /dev/hd? devices (i.e. /compat/linux/devhd?) are not read/write. I made a soft link from this device (in /compat/linux/dev/hda) to /dev/ad0. Then it recognizes read/write acces. But when powering on the machine it tells me that it is not a raw device and it does not boot. I have crw-r----- 1 root operator 0, 86 Nov 13 12:02 /dev/ad0 and lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 8 Nov 9 21:21 /compat/linux/dev/hda@ -> /dev/ad0 The original hda device created by the port is brwxrwxrwx 1 root wheel 0, 0x00010002 Jun 12 21:12 /compat/linux/dev/hda_orig* I tried to create it using the minor and major characters 0 and 86, as in /dev/ad0, but it do not produce a working device. I have linux, aio, acpi and linprocfs modules loaded. The /dev/ad0 disk I wan to boot in vmware is different from the one in which FreeBSD is installed (/dev/ad3) Any suggestions?
