Is there any other (working and reliable) virtualization solution for NetBSD?
I've seen VirtualBox in pkgsrc/wip but it doesn't cleanly compile.
As far as I knew, NetBSD used as dom0 is unable to see more than one
cpu. Actually, it is true: I don't see more than one CPU on the dom0 BUT
I can assign all the cpus to the domUs. So it's ok. Dom0, for me, is
just the controller. Nothing will be done (just ssh running, for admin
And to put this in context, Citrix XenServer as of version 5.6 only
presents 1 vCPU to the dom0 too (by choice - as it's based on Linux they
could present more if they wanted). XenServer 5.6 FP1 (to be released Real
Soon Now) has SMP dom0 as they felt that it would speed up packet
routing, particularly with the integration of Open vSwitch. In general,
once the VMs are running, dom0 does little besides broker access to
VBDs and VIFs.
