Sorry for the repost

I am currently attempting to import a linux instance into bhyve via
petitecloud but here is the script that PC would generate for such a
instance tell me if something like it works: (just replace the mentions of
freebsd with linux ones):

#!/bin/sh

pw lock petitecloud
truncate -s 10G /vms/pri/jf4aibtonk
ifconfig tap202 destroy
ifconfig tap202 create
ifconfig tap202 up
sleep 5
ifconfig bridge0 addm tap202 up

/usr/sbin/bhyveload -m 512 -d /vms/cds/FreeBSD-10.0-BETA2-amd64-disc1.iso
jf4aibtonk
/usr/sbin/bhyve -c 1 -m 512 -AI -H -P -g 0 -s 0:0,hostbridge -s
1:0,virtio-net,tap202 -s 2:0,virtio-blk,/vms/pri/jf4aibtonk -s
3:0,virtio-blk,/vms/cds/FreeBSD-10.0-BETA2-amd64-disc1.iso -S
31,uart,stdio  jf4aibtonk
echo $!>/var/run/petitecloud/jf4aibtonk
ifconfig tap202 destroy
ifconfig tap202 create
ifconfig tap202 up
sleep 5
ifconfig bridge0 addm tap202 up

/usr/sbin/bhyveload -m 512 -d /vms/pri/jf4aibtonk jf4aibtonk
/usr/sbin/bhyve -c 1 -m 512 -AI -H -P -g 0 -s 0:0,hostbridge -s
1:0,virtio-net,tap202 -s 2:0,virtio-blk,/vms/pri/jf4aibtonk -S
31,uart,stdio  jf4aibtonk
echo $!>/var/run/petitecloud/jf4aibtonk


I suggest try it via PC or some other precanned script and then debug and
adopt from there (i.e. use the assumption that everything is file backed
not disk backed until you can isolate the issue)
