Virtualization Minimal Setup

Install Packages

Minimally, we need the Bhyve packages. Optionally, qemu and libvirt related packages.

sudo pkg inst qemu-tools qemu edk2-qemu-x64 aqemu
sudo pkg inst bhyve+ bhyve-firmware bhyve-rc-4 edk2-bhyve grub2-bhyve sysutils/vm-bhyve
sudo pkg inst libvirt libvirt-dbus

Encrypting a usb-key with GELI+UFS2

Remove all partitions on the USB device

gpart destroy -F da2

Create 4K block size GELI device with Passphrase

geli init -s 4096 /dev/da2
<enter passphrase on prompt>

geli attach /dev/da2
<enter passphrase on prompt>

Create mount dir and wipe the GELI device

mkdir /mnt/usb64
dd if=/dev/random of=/dev/da2.eli bs=1M conv=sync status=progress

Load gJournal and create + label the GELI device

gjournal load
sysrc -f /boot/loader.conf geom_journal_load="YES"
gjournal label /dev/da2.eli

Create GPT part-map and UFS2 partition on gJournal device

gpart create -s gpt da2.eli.journal
gpart add -t freebsd-ufs -l usb64 da2.eli.journal

Create GPT based UFS2 filesystem with gJournal and volume label

newfs -J -t -L usb64-ufs-gjournal /dev/gpt/usb64

Mount device for use

mount /dev/gpt/usb64 /mnt/usb64

Commands to unmount + detach GELI when finished

umount /mnt/usb64
geli detach da2.eli

Adhoc packages needed

usb stuff

pkg inst -y shells/ksh93 textproc/groff x11/xdm x11-drivers/xf86-video-mga x11-drivers/xf86-video-vesa

The new JACK server comes with a DBUS control interface:

$ jack_control help $ jack_control ds oss $ jack_control dp $ jack_control dps rate 48000 $ jack_control dps wordlength 16 $ jack_control dps capture /dev/dsp0 $ jack_control dps playback /dev/dsp0 $ jack_control eps realtime False $ jack_control start

To use real-time priority for JACK server and clients, load the mac_priority(4) module and add the JACK user to the realtime group.

Memory locking has to be allowed in /etc/login.conf or ~/.login_conf. Set the resource limit “:memorylocked=unlimited:” and don’t forget to run

cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf

It’s still possible to start JACK server as an RC service for a dedicated user. Note that only one JACK server can be run at a time. An /etc/rc.conf example:

jackd_enable=”YES” jackd_user=”joe” jackd_args=”–no-realtime -doss -r48000 -p1024 -w16 \ –capture /dev/dsp0 –playback /dev/dsp0”

1) add webcamd_enable=”YES”

to your /etc/rc.conf 2) Please restart devd to start webcamd

    # service devd restart

3) Optionally add a user to the “webcamd” group

    # pw groupmod webcamd -m <username>
