PfSense + kvm+qemu+libvirt = freeze in boot menu

  • Hi pfSense Community!

    I've got a strange problem: i use kvm+qemu+libvirt for virtualisation with ubuntu server as host. for testing purposes i've already installed another ubuntu guest, which runs fine.

    Now i wanted to set up a pfSense guest and i have tried the following iso images:

    -rw-r–r-- 1 libvirt-qemu kvm 64M 2011-02-14 07:10 pfSense-1.2.3-RELEASE-LiveCD-Installer.iso
    -rw-r--r-- 1 libvirt-qemu kvm 124M 2011-06-22 11:17 pfSense-2.0-RC3-amd64-20110621-2308.iso
    -rw-r--r-- 1 libvirt-qemu kvm 124M 2011-09-17 04:07 pfSense-2.0-RELEASE-amd64.iso

    But when i boot up the virtual machine, the boot menu gets stuck and freezes. The timer which is supposed to run down from 10 to 0 never reaches 0, it's stuck at 10/9 or somtimes 8, and then nothing happens and any keyboard input besides strg+alt+del is ignored.

    Also, at one point i got this to work by spamming return while booting and the installer showed, but then the installed system has the same problem, the counter starts (i think) by 3 and never reaches 0, but instead freezes at 3 and even no return spamming got this machine to boot up.

    Is there any known bug about this or even a solution?

    Hope somebody can help  ???

    so long
