The VM-disk is a file, very early on I tried things with ZVOL but have not yet returned to testing those. Well the system passes the fsck-check during boot. And I can manually config the network, and /etc/resolv.conf Then the system stays up, and I was able to download the new sources and build them without crashing the system... I really crashed right after DHCP answers.... --WjW _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
