I installed some updates using Aptitude within the
Debian guest which promptly broke the VM.
Additional info is needed to help:
- bhyve command line you use to start the VM
- what error messages do you see stating that it's broken?
It was a while back I was running it, so I am not quite sure which
method I had finally stuck with I worked through multiple different
management scripts at the time before settling on the one I liked best.
I tried at the time to manually run the VM without using the management
script to no avail. It would start with no bhyve error on FreeBSD side,
but when connecting to the console the grub boot loader couldn't find
the kernel. It appeared to be a disconnect between the kernel upgrade
within Linux updating grub configuration and the grub2-bhyve setup.
Maybe it was just a one off issue and something went wrong during the
Linux update and nothing to do with byhve. However at the time, I didn't
have time to play with it and new I could get it working with
Is there anything that normally needs to be done after a Linux kernel
update to refresh the grub2-bhyve setup?
Its winter now, so I have some time to play with it again.
Unfortunately the old external hard drive I wrote a backup of the data
to save until I had time to work on it again was too old, and doesn't
want to spin up now, or I could provide the exact error information.
