  1. After several attempts I figured out how to install the qemu-guest-agent in FreeBSD 12.1 without wasting G of space and hours of compiling this and that. Here are the instructions, for those who might need it: # install all required binaries pkg install -y gettext-runtime git glib gmake pkgconf python37 # update the port tree portsnap auto # use qemu41 instead mv /usr/ports/emulators/qemu /usr/ports/emulators/qemu42 && ln -s /usr/ports/emulators/qemu41 /usr/ports/emulators/qemu # download the qemu-guest-agent source and compile/install it git clone /usr/ports/emulators/qemu-guest-agent cd /usr/ports/emulators/qemu-guest-agent make install clean # restore the port tree rm /usr/ports/emulators/qemu && mv /usr/ports/emulators/qemu42 /usr/ports/emulators/qemu # enable the guest agent in rc.conf sysrc qemu_guest_agent_enable="YES" sysrc qemu_guest_agent_flags="-d -v -l /var/log/qemu-ga.log" # load the VirtIO console and make it permanent kldload virtio_console echo 'virtio_console_load="YES"' >> /boot/loader.conf # start the guest agent service qemu-guest-agent start It could still take around 30 mins tho.

  2. Yeah I read that also. Failed initially and found out the port tree was updated to a new version. After redirected to the correct version all is good. Just somehow the whole process installed over 1G of files and spent hours to compile so that I can shutdown from the VMM isn't quite justifying... XD
  3. I read that already. Not really helpful. There is no prebuild qemu-guest-agent for FreeBSD.
  4. I am running 1.02b DS3617xs/6.1.7 and I created a virtual machine running FreeBSD 12.1 on the Virtual Machine Manager from Synology. When I want to power off the vm it said I dont have the guest agent installed. I tried looking for it in FreeBSD ports and packages but cannot get any meaningful progress. Can anyone point me to the right direction please?

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Nevermind. v1.03b doesn't work for me.

    DSM 6.2 Loader

    Can I use v1.03b loader to install DSM 6.1.7 first, so that I can upgrade to 6.2 later?
