    Dear all,
    installing the latest snapshot of FreeBSD runs fine on the latest preview version. I can build world and kernel, install it, and run it. Networking also works. However, this only works with a single CPU allocated. As soon as I allocate more than one CPU to the VM, FreeBSD hangs at about mounting the filesystem. Is this an issue with the hypervisor or with FreeBSD?

    My guess is that the kernel does not support multiple "CPUs" for Arm. Have you checked if there are any options during the kernel build process?

    I'm using a GENERIC kernel, which contains support for SMP. I use it also on a 32 core ARM-based server from Ampere.
    The FreeBSD kernel contains all fixes which were necessary to get FreeBSD up on the VMWare hypervisor available for some ARM platforms.
