    Nothing wrong, just a different architectures. On Intel, I guess, you are running legacy BIOS with VGA BIOS reporting a number of possible video resolutions. On ARM UEFI BIOS advertises the only one resolution 1024x768. In general you need video driver in FreeBSD that is able to work with virtual video adapter. As you specified Linux guest OS type during VM creation, I guess there is should be virtio-gpu driver in FreeBSD.

    thanks for the info.
    In my Intel MacBook there was a FreeBSD 13 AMD 64...
    Here, if I run
    Code:
    pciconf -lv | grep -A4 vga
    I get no output at all.
    I've installed xf86-video-scfb drivers also and set a file /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver.scfb.conf ...
    Now it starts the GUI (Mate + Slim) but the mouse in hanged, stuck, I need to go in another shell (^Alt-F1) to try some commands...
    Are there other commands to get what video card is installed?

    In the login window (GUI of Slim) the keyboard works but not the mouse, after login entering the Mate GUI, the mouse pointer puts itself in the center but it is not possible to move it.
    I tried to enable or disable moused in /etc/rc.conf but nothing changes.

    ok, found: for mouse working ta trick is to set
    Code:
    # /boot/loader.conf
    ums_load="YES"
    It remains the problem with resolution in GUI: in Mate only 1024x768. Help appreciated, thanks.
