Tried installing the newly released 5.4 as a guest. Its too bad that VMware doesn’t have tools support FreeBSD guests. I guess it’s just not a big enough market. It’s a shame because FreeBSD seems to run really well in the guest. A vmxnet here and a hgfs there, and it’d make a fine webserver.
Solaris 10 on the other hand.. seems really slow. I think there’s something about turning on DMA for the IDE controller during startup, but I haven’t really looked too closely yet. Seems like it takes several minutes just to boot into the installer. I wonder whats up?
