Hi, We have a requirement to run a 32-bit propritery OS on Bhyve. While going through www.bhyve.org, i can across these 2 points:
<snip> Q: What guest operating systems does bhyve support? A: bhyve supports any version of FreeBSD with VirtIO support, plus OpenBSD and GNU/Linux using the sysutils/grub2-bhyve port to load them: - FreeBSD 8.4-RELEASE and 8-STABLE - FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE and 9-STABLE - FreeBSD 10 (All versions) - FreeBSD 11-CURRENT - OpenBSD HEAD as of late October, 2013 - GNU/Linux Q: Could bhyve support i386 VMs? A: Yes, in theory. What is your use case? </snip> In answer to first question it has been mentioned that ANY versions of FreeBSD can be run as Guest on Bhyve however the second point says i386 only in theory. What does this mean ? When i searched more on this i came across these two links: 1. http://freebsd.1045724.n5.nabble.com/Three-observations-on-Bhyve-td5854956.html This talks about not being able to boot i386 kernel ISO over Bhyve 2. http://feedbsd.org/discussion/380052/i386183400-bhyve-cannot-load-an-i386-kernel This bug report on the issue reported in link 1 above. This issue seems to be fairly recent. Can someone let me know which kernels does Bhyve support ? 32-bit or 64-bit ? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
