Pardon me asking, but how did you get DragonFly booting on VirtualBox? I tried
it again (with 1.6.2 on Linux x64) after reading your post. With ACPI enabled it
freezes during the countdown; with ACPI disabled, just after countdown. Bug #995
still appears to be active too.
Would love to get DragonFly working, and I don't feel like using KVM.
I attached the .vmdk file I've used for ages to run DragonFly. However
I've tested it again and it hangs just after the boot menu, as does the
1.12.2 install CD.
I've done a fresh install of DFly since I last tried VirtualBox, the
previous install had a custom make.conf and kernel config to build for a
VIA C3 system and had been upgraded in-place for several versions.
VirtualBox like KVM is partly based on QEmu but I've looked on the
website and it doesn't seem to support debugging of guest OSes. Any
testing is going to be trial and error.
Sending a bug report a Sun is probably the quickest route to getting it
