i have no exotic linuxes, but two fairly modern debians. i remain mystified by 
the behaviour of grub-bhyve, which usually fails (no meaningful error message) 
and seems like won't run from /etc/rc.local (must be run from a shell.) so, 
one of my bhyve servers can't restart automatically, and i don't know why. and 
i recently saw that the grub-bhyve package now lacks a maintainer, and may be 

what this means is, a video on running linux in a bhyve would be appreciated.

because of the internal container boundaries of windows 10 and server 2016, i 
won't run anything older. so if you're doing a windows server on bhyve video, 
i would want it to be 2016.
