See release(7), The

Hi Matt!

Thank you so much for the tip! I tried what you recommended, the command I ran specifically was (inside release/)

sudo make vm-image WITH_VMIMAGES=1 VMBASE=aaaa VMSIZE=2G VMFORMATS=raw VMSIZE=2G vm-image

followed by

    sudo sh /usr/share/examples/bhyve/ -d aaaa.raw vm-aaaa

but apparently the image generated doesn't work. The error I'm getting after hitting "1" at the boot screen is

    Error return from kevent monitor: Not permitted in capability mode

repeatedly cascading through the screen. Any ideas? I would greatly appreciate your help!

Best regards,
