Bhyve newbie trying to get it to start.
I am getting the FreeBSD loader but it then exits when the loader goes to boot. I've also found "kldload nmdm" does not create any entries in /dev. Isn't it suppose to? I'm not sure what I am doing wrong.
nmdm(4) is a cloneable device so device nodes won't show up until they're opened.
Also, vmrun.sh is hard-coded to use stdio for output. You'll have to modify the script to get bhyveload (the -c option) and bhyve (the "-l com1," option) to use an nmdm device.

This is a Nehalem Xeon - it doesn't have the VT-x feature known as "unrestricted guest" aka 16/32-bit emulation which arrived in Westmere. This won't allow FreeBSD to spin up APs (16-bit emulation required) or to run Linux via grub-bhyve (32-bit paging-disabled emulation). You'll be restricted to single CPU FreeBSD guests on this model :(
later, Peter. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
