I made a new Portable Slackware 12.2 (Xfce) using the new version of QEMU (0.10.5) for GNU/Linux.

I also tested this new Portable Slackware 12.2 with kqemu on my Slackware 12.2 host and it works well and very fast.

Awesome, glad you got it going.

Does it run any faster?
Wonder if there is a way to configure a version of 12.2 solely for emulation?

I am still making some tests.

kqemu is a kernel module, so I cannot make it start from USB, unless it is installed on the GNU/Linux host computer.

In the next few days, I will upload this new version to my web space and give you the link, so you can download it.
