Thank you for CCing -virtualization.

The reason why I requested that Susan email that list directly is that this email (and the new email thread that followed it, to a lesser degree) are asking BHyVE specific questions, so I thought that it would be best for Susan to email the appropriate mailing list, so the right parties are involved in helping out with her support questions, to make it easy to search for solutions to this issue (or questions similar to this) in the future, and to make sure that folks on -testing aren’t emailed with -virtualization questions (I use VMware, not BHyVE, so the questions/answers are less pertinent to me at least).

Could you please document the steps you provided in the reply on the wiki?

Thank you!
