AIX PPC with qemu

Does anybody here knows how to set up a PPC virtual machine with qemu and install AIX on it ?

Is that possible?

I can't say for sure if AIX would work such as one might find on a risc/6000. They are not exactly the same.

Might be better off with OpenSolaris.

Try using a premade image:
qemu-system-ppc -hdc /path/to/image.qcow2 -m 256
Add the path to the install image and the proper boot argument.
You can also choose the boot during the openfirmware selection with
> boot-device cd:0
or you can choose c if yaboot is installed.
