Problem with script/qemu-help


Evening, I am trying to find the solution to this problem...
downloaded Billix-0.23/0.24 'cause I wanted to check out the DSL/Qemu feature for Linux/Windows users.
A few months ago I remember downloading Billix and the Qemu/DSL .sh worked.
Now, it says what you see below...

Code:
bash-3.1# mount -t vfat -o rw,exec /dev/sde1 
/mnt/usb
mount: /dev/sde1 already mounted or /mnt/usb busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sde1 is already mounted 
on /mnt/usb
bash-3.1# cd /mnt/usb
bash-3.1# cd /mnt/sde1
bash-3.1# ./dsl-linux.sh
qemu: could not open hard disk image 
'qemu/harddisk'
bash-3.1#
If you download both versions-0.23/0.24 you will see a difference in the contents of the Qemu folder.
This is the script-
Code:
qemu/qemu -L qemu/ -soundhw sb16 -kernel 
boot/linux24 
-initrd boot/minirt24.gz -hda KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX 
-hdb qemu/harddisk -append "qemu frugal quiet 
modules=hdb nousb noscsi nofirewire atapicd noideraid noacpi acpi=off noapm noagp nomce"
here's the readme-
Code:
When Running from Linux:
Mount the pendrive and then
from shell type:

 dsl-linux.sh

If dsl-linux will not execute then see 
qemu-linux-notes.txt
Here's the Qemu notes-
Code:
If problem dsl-linux.sh will not execute:

There is an option to mount called "exec" it allows execution of files within the file system. 
Apparently it is not a default option to have on when mount vfat (unsurprisingly).

So to mount your usb drive:
mount -t vfat -o <your other options>,exec <your device> <your mount point>

e.g.
mount -t vfat -o rw,exec /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb

Or in fstab...
/dev/sda1 /mnt/usb vfat noauto,user,rw,exec 0 0

Then dsl-linux.sh worked!
So, what's the issue here??

OK-I changed the script a bit for Billix-0.23 and got Qemu to boot DSL but there are still Major issues. Why does this script exist if it doesn't work?
Anyway, I edited the script a few times and can get DSL to boot, but it either says it can't find the Modules to load, or it gets to the configuring screen and nothing works-mouse, keyboard-only thing that works is the "enter" key-so I can't use the up/down left/right arrow keys to choose xconfig, etc.
The desktop has a grey background and nothing works.
Obviously it's loading and everything-just something is not being loaded...
Here I changed the dsl-linux.sh from "-hda KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX -hdb qemu/harddisk " to "-hda DSL/KNOPPIX -hdb qemu/qemu"
Her's the term output-
Code:
bz@bz-desktop:~$ sudo su
[sudo] password for bz: 
root@bz-desktop:/home/bz# cd /home/bz/Desktop/billix
root@bz-desktop:/home/bz/Desktop/billix# ./dsl-linux.sh
Could not open '/dev/kqemu' - QEMU acceleration 
layer not activated
root@bz-desktop:/home/bz/Desktop/billix#
See the loading screenshot-

So, how do I fix this?
As I said everything else goes well except the modules are not being loaded and the mouse/kybd, etc not working.

Ha! Somehow I just got it working-except I had to use the "shift" key plus the arrow buttons on the right side of the keyboard-the numeric
or calculator keyboard-what's it called?
Anyway see the screenshot of the Desktop-that's Qemu running via "dsl-linux.sh" out of the "Billix-0.23" folder on my SuperUbuntu-8.10 Desktop!
Now, because it didn't load the modules correctly how do I fix that??
If some one could please download both Billix-0.23 and Billix-0.24-check out the differences in the qemu folders(I had to use the 0.23 version as the 0.24 version is missing "Qemu".
( http://ftp2.uk.freebsd.org/sites/dow...e/b/bi/billix/ )
I really need to figure this out-
Thanks

OK-the keyboard and mouse work in qemu DSL, but what do the errors mean in screenshot 1-
Can't locate module XFS
Can't locate module minix
Can't locate module hfs
Can't locate module efs
What is xfs/efs/hfs/minix??
How do I correct this??

I would suggest you contact the people of billix.
