Click <guimenuitem>Finish</guimenuitem> and the virtual machine will boot:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd07' md5='__failed__'
Install FreeBSD as usual:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd08' md5='__failed__'
Once the install is complete, the settings of the virtual machine can be modified, such as memory usage:
The System Hardware settings of the virtual machine cannot be modified while the virtual machine is running.
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd09' md5='__failed__'
The number of CPUs the virtual machine will have access to:
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd10' md5='__failed__'
The status of the <acronym>CD-ROM</acronym> device. Normally the <acronym>CD</acronym>/<acronym>DVD</acronym>/<acronym>ISO</acronym> is disconnected from the virtual machine when it is no longer needed.
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd11' md5='__failed__'
The last thing to change is how the virtual machine will connect to the network. To allow connections to the virtual machine from other machines besides the host, choose <guimenuitem>Connect directly to the physical network (Bridged)</guimenuitem>. Otherwise, <guimenuitem>Share the host's internet connection (NAT)</guimenuitem> is preferred so that the virtual machine can have access to the Internet, but the network cannot access the virtual machine.
_ external ref='virtualization/vmware-freebsd12' md5='__failed__'
After modifying the settings, boot the newly installed FreeBSD virtual machine.
Configuring FreeBSD on <application>VMware Fusion</application>
After FreeBSD has been successfully installed on <trademark class="registered">Mac OS</trademark> X with <application>VMware Fusion</application>, there are a number of configuration steps that can be taken to optimize the system for virtualized operation.
The most important step is to reduce the <option>kern.hz</option> tunable to reduce the CPU utilization of FreeBSD under the <application>VMware Fusion</application> environment. This is accomplished by adding the following line to <filename>/boot/loader.conf</filename>:
Without this setting, an idle FreeBSD <application>VMware Fusion</application> guest will use roughly 15% of the CPU of a single processor <trademark class="registered">iMac</trademark>. After this change, the usage will be closer to 5%.
All of the FireWire, and USB device drivers can be removed from a custom kernel configuration file. <application>VMware Fusion</application> provides a virtual network adapter used by the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>em</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry> driver, so all network devices except for <citerefentry><refentrytitle>em</refentrytitle><manvolnum>4</manvolnum></citerefentry> can be removed from the kernel.
The most basic networking setup uses DHCP to connect the virtual machine to the same local area network as the host <trademark class="registered">Mac</trademark>. This can be accomplished by adding <literal>ifconfig_em0="DHCP"</literal> to <filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename>. More advanced networking setups are described in <xref linkend="advanced-networking"/>.
FreeBSD as a Guest on <trademark>VirtualBox</trademark>
FreeBSD works well as a guest in <application><trademark>VirtualBox</trademark></application>. The virtualization software is available for most common operating systems, including FreeBSD itself.
The <application><trademark>VirtualBox</trademark></application> guest additions provide support for:
Clipboard sharing.
Mouse pointer integration.
Host time synchronization.
Window scaling.
Seamless mode.
These commands are run in the FreeBSD guest.
First, install the <package>emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions</package> package or port in the FreeBSD guest. This will install the port:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>cd /usr/ports/emulators/virtualbox-ose-additions &amp;&amp; make install clean</userinput>
