FreeBSD in VMWare Problem

6 December 2007

If you’ve installed FreeBSD on VMWare and installed the VMWare Tools, you’ll probably find that you get the following message appear every-so-often:

“calcru: runtime went backwards”

This appears to be a problem with VMWare simulating the timer. You can fix it by running the following code:

sysctl kern.timecounter.hardware=TSC

    Hey mate, are you trying out FreeBSD?

    Yeh, I’ve been learning c programming for a couple of months now; more specifically using the unix headers.

    FreeBSD seems to be the most lightweight way to do this!
