    bhyve Is it possible to run OpenBSD virtualization (vm) within bhyve?

    I've launched an OpenBSD instance within bhyve. I'm testing if it is possible to run OpenBSD's virtualization (vm) by executing this command (from within OpenBSD): and it returned nothing. So, it is possible to set bhyve to to enable OpenBSD to run virtualization?

    Thermal information, reported by Intel processors

    There's a comment in the BUGS section of the OpenBSD cpu(4) man page: I'm wondering, whether * It's an Intel-specific bug, and both FreeBSD and OpenBSD have the same problem. OR * It's an OpenBSD specific problem, thus it doesn't apply to FreeBSD.

    How OpenBSD is secure compared to other operating systems?

    I read many times OpenBSD is the most secure system and it have a minimal code base which affect to its security. I'm curious how OpenBSD is secure comparing to other operating systems from BSD family (mainly FreeBSD, NetBSD and HardenedBSD) and comparing to any hardened Linux (for example...

    Too many "alien" programs in base

    Hi. My name is vall, and I am sick with the NIH-syndrome. :eek: Not a big joke, but actually. FreeBSD has a lot of contrib software from others BSDs: - from OpenBSD there are mandoc (with mdocml, apropos) m4, lagg, dhclient, pf, carp, crypto, ssh (with sftp, sshd), x86emu, grep, make, netcat...

    Port of OpenBSD's doas

    Last year the OpenBSD developers created an alternative to "sudo" called "doas". The doas program has a simpler configuration file and is quite small, keeping the code tiny and, one hopes, secure. I have ported the OpenBSD 5.9 version of doas over to FreeBSD 10.3 (with a lot of help from the...

    Hello. Do any OpenBSD-related forums exist? I'm planning to buy a new laptop, and I will probably install OpenBSD as its operating system, because its graphics card seems to be supported by DragonFlyBSD and OpenBSD, but weirdly not FreeBSD, the biggest and most popular BSD. Do you have any...
