After having used bhyve for servers for quite a while, I have just started using it with the graphical console using vnc a few days ago.

This stuff is awesome. Having a native solution for virtualization on FreeBSD is great.

However, I had some trouble with keyboard mappings and the vnc based console. I guess that having a non-US keyboard is what causes problems.

The first thing I always do after installing a new operating system is fetching my ssh public keys via https. I had a hard time finding out how to type '/' and I never found a way to type '-'.

I know that this stuff is hard to fix. What I am hoping is, that it could be easy to add the '/*-+' keys on the numeric part of the keyboard to the mapping. Those are often helpful and I think they map the same way on all keyboards.
