2015-11-12 Thread Matt Churchyard via freebsd-virtualization
Hello, For anyone interested I have submitted a PR to update the version of vm-bhyve in the ports tree. Primarily this fixes the off-putting, but completely benign error printed when users run 'vm init' (the very first thing to run...) I've no idea if I've got the diff format right though.

bhyve uefi error please help me!
