BSD and Darwin derivatives Via Ivan Voras' blog (yes a few days late....but this place needs more BSD news). Michael Dexter of CFT has published a tutorial on FreeBSD's upcoming type 2 hypervisor known as BHyVe. The article guides the reader through the procedures to configure, build & boot a hypervisor capable host and guest system. BHyVe currently only supports Intel's x86 virtualization hardware & the project itself is still currently under early development.

As of this writing, the hyperlinks in the article don't work.

They should work better now. Some weird syntax errors...

Somehow on topic, since I'm more of a redhatophile, I was really pleasantly surprised to see virtio drivers for KVM work well in Freebsd.

FreeBSD already has one strong type2 hypervisor - VirtualBox.

IMO They should concentrate a lot of effort around VirtualBox, rather than starting yet-another one.

But this is interesting news.
