PfSense 2.1 : Trap 12 on KVM

  • Hello everyone,

    I had a problem, and visibly not the only one to have this one (saw a similar topic on the retired section),
    i can't get my installation of pfSense 2.1 on a KVM based virtualisation infrastructure booting, i got a Trap 12 when freebsd was loading the AT keyboard driver.

    A simple fix using : set hint.atkbd.0.disabled="1" got it running, but without keyboard it was not very helpful.

    So i decided to compile and install the latest seabios binary.

    git clone git://
    cd seabios
    cp ./out/bios.bin /usr/share/qemu/bios.bin

    And it works !

    Hope this will help others having the same issue.
