First and foremost sorry for the late answer. I have busy days these days 😉
I try to explain. Pls keep in mind that my English is not good. English isn’t my mother tongue..
I have an old Lenovo Thinkpad here. They are known to be pretty well supported by BSDs. So I thought I can give it a second life. Because I have one Thinkpad but more than one goal.
In my holiday i tried to make me familiar with compiling software on NetBSD. It was a mess tbh. So my idea was to make further attempts in a VM to keep my tries in a VM instead of mess up or bloat my real hardware. It’s more then 20 years ago when I wrote and compiled software. So I’m n00bish while I remember some parts. My thought is to create a VM with a good basic setup wich I will save and were I can fall back to, when I get stuck again.
On the same time I want to use the Thinkpad for other productive things too. For this my favourite is OpenBSD.
So my idea was to install OpenBSD for my browsing, texmaker stuff etc. And virtualise NetBSD for my compiling experiments with VMM.
I hope I could clarify the situation a bit.
