vmm enabled - October 12, 2016, 8:57 am UTC

With a small commit, OpenBSD now has a hypervisor and virtualization in-tree. This has been a lot of hard work by Mike Larkin, Reyk Flöter, and many others.

VMM requires certain hardware features (Intel Nehalem or later, and virtualization enabled in the BIOS) in order to provide VM services, and currently only supports OpenBSD guests.

Module name: src
Changes by: [email protected] 2016/10/12 02:30:26

Modified files:
sys/arch/amd64/conf: GENERIC

Log message:
enable vmm

This has been enabled in snapshots for a week, so your favourite mirror is already ready for you to upgrade. Of course, please report any bugs you run into.
