Not at this point as the emulation doesn’t currently support the ps2 
intellimouse.

Thanks, I've merged it manually with 11.0-RELEASE and will try to use it :)

Piotr,
Thanks to work from Peter G, bhyve has been patched[1] to fix the PS/2
mouse issue in 9front. With this fixed, I was able to get 9front installed
and running from a bhyve virtual machine using virtio-blk emulation.  I was
even able to set up networking[2] with virtio-net. Using ahci-hd and Intel
1000 emulation did not work for me. I'd also like to note that I had better
success with partitioning the virtual hard drive as MBR in the installer,
over GPT. I have heard of GPT working for some people, though. I uploaded a
simple script to Gist[3] that I used to get this done, but as long as you
use Virtio drivers you should be fine.

Is it possible to use other mouse drivers, ps2intellimouse etc.?

Re: Booting 9front on bhyve

2016-12-14 Thread Peter Grehan

Hi Piotr,


That's what I actually do - I boot 9front with UEFI enabled.

The problem is that when booting with UEFI mode, 9front hangs on
https://anongoth.pl/2016-12-14-191343_1920x1080_scrot.png


 I managed to get it to boot a bit further. The tip is to not hit return
at the [vesa] line - enter any text and then hit return, and it will 
continue using the UEFI frame buffer.



When I enable CSM, I get further, but when I move my mouse, it only
randomly moves in the VM (I set up ps2 type).

Any idea on this?


 Unfortunately hit the same issue on UEFI: the ps2 mouse is pretty much 
unusable :(


later,

Peter.
