You're the best. Thank you SO MUCH.
Try it, and, please, tell me if it works
Will do. Thanks!
Got KDE5 to work on FreeBSD 13.1 in a Parallels VM. Had to switch the repos from QUARTERLY to LATEST and then the KDE5 installation went smoothly.
However, I haven't been able to get sound to work.
@salvomic Help me Obi Wan ;-)
I have installed FreeBSD 13.1 under Parallels.
1. My /boot/ directory does not have a "loader.conf" file, but does have a "loader.conf.d" directory. I have tried putting a file that directory including ums_load="YES" and I also tried just adding in a loader.conf file. I have also added this (for XFCE4, but I also did the above got Gnome with the same results)
When I boot, I see an error: Starting default mousemoused: unable to open /dev/psm0: No such file or directory
I would really like to make either Gnome or XFCE4 work with a mouse. The screen starts up fine showing a window manager, but the mouse does not work at all. I am forced to hard stop the running VM.
Confession: I was unable to get the downloaded ISO to install, so I used this pre-packaged VM image
FreeBSD-13.1-RELEASE-arm64-aarch64.vhdx. Other than having to change the suffix from .vhd to .vhdx to make Parallels happy, it worked fine. I did have to increase the disk size, but it all works fine from the command line. X11 boots and looks right, but the mouse is frozen.
@salvomic I made it work.
i think the Virtual Machine instance lacked some drivers.
I installed from the ISO and used "Other" OS. Then I went through all your steps (Thank You!). I am using XCFE and the mouse works now. BTW, I still get the moused error on boot (no /dev/psm0) - but the mouse is working now under XFCE.
Thank you. Yes, later I was able to install the VM 3.1 on the latest version of Parallels and it works well. Your advice is great.
