I recently ran into the problem that qemu on my slackware-current machine is not working properly.
When I try to start with:
qemu-kvm -cdrom opensuse.iso -m 4096 -smp 4
qemu-system-x86_64 -cdrom opensuse.iso -enable-kvm -m 4096 -smp 4
Doesnt matter if I give it a less memory or less cpu power, its always the same.
The qemu window pops up but it stays black.
The intel-kvm and kvm modules are loaded.
This happens to me when using qemu:
- 1.2 from alienbobs repo
- 1.3 from slackys repo
- 1.4 from slackbuilds 14.0 repo
- 1.6 from slackbuilds current repo
With the versions 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 I see the boot options from the iso, after selecting whatsoever it stays black.
My CPU is used a lot by qemu.
Does anybody know the problem here? I don't get it...
Even after building qemu without slackbuilds and my own options it won't work.
VirtualBox is working properly but I'd like to stay with qemu.
