x86_64 virtual machine question.


I have a processor that is pre-virtualization exetensions.

Virtual box works very nicely with a 32 bit guest OS but won't support x86_64 guests since I don't have the virtualization extensions.

I've tried qemu-0.12.5 and it works, but it's painfully slow. I also tried falling back to qemu-0.11.1+kqemu which is much faster but crashes during the slack setup (probably why x86_64 support is only considered experimental).

Does anyone know any good alternatives or if there's something i'm missing to speed up qemu? Is using newer hardware my only option?

thanks

I have 0.9.1-qemu-i386-2_SBo in my Slackcurrent using multilib ... qemu-version 0.9.1-i386-2_SBo is fast. In my case I have Win98, I use to use a dictionary of English (English-and portuques portuques - English)

good luck
