Qemu on Debian not working?


Hey I have been using Bochs for a while and wanted to check out Qemu... the qemu linux test works reasonably well, but I don't seem able to boot up Qemu using the windows image i used with bochs or from the cdrom...

when I run qemu it just burns CPU cycles... i have tried compiling the 0.7 source code and using aptitude to get the 0.6 binaries....

same result with both builds... anyone have any ideas?

Both worked for me. From your post I can't think of much. What's the command you started with? Are you getting any errors, lockups etc.

I am just using something similar to:

qemu -m 256 -hda windows.img -cdrom /dev/hdb -boot c

I also have tried using:

qemu -m 256 windows.img

and tried mounting the windows.img file and running qemu using that... this didn't work... though I am rather excited about the prospect of using wine with this mounted image!

The problem is I am not getting any error messages (but qemu is utilising 100% CPU), perhaps if I could compile a debug build and get a more verbose idea of what is and isn't happening... I have also installed the kqemu module. I am expecting a Qemu window to appear and show me the boot up progress of the machine it is emulating... is this an accurate expectation?

The linux-test image works under user mode, but it doesn't work if I try "qemu linux.img" though I suspect this is something to do with not including the kernel that is included?

I am running debian linux testing branch, with a blackbox windows manager, no (at least as little as possible) gnome or kde.

cheers.

I am also trying to use qemu with a windows image that i made and installed on with bochs.

But I have also tried creating an image with qemu and installing from cd a version of windows... this had the same (zero) result.

Which windows are you trying to run with kqemu. Anything below win2k isn't supported and doesn't work. Could it be that it's just slow?

I think qemu goes to 100% CPU for everyone, it does for me too. Can you start from cdrom or not?
