libpcap updates for Qemu 0.9.0

I decided to update my pcap patches for Qemu 0.9.0 . Now I know that for the majority of people the user mode NAT works fine for them, or they are on a platform where they enjoy playing tun/tap games. However tun/tap aren’t available on every platform. That and some of us run things like Novell Netware.

The patches are as follows:

The patch for plain QEMU

And adding support for NeXTSTEP

Now how robust is this? Well I have transfered about a gigabyte on a VM on the internet with this thing. The machine in question is a windows 2003 server running this Qemu as a service. . It’s hosting it’s own Apache, and it seems somewhat responsive to me.

I can provide exe’s if anyone is interested just contact me via here…

Qemu 0.90 patched for NeXTSTEP 3.3 i386

Patches for Qemu 0.90 are available here: The busmouse patch still survives here.
The win32 exe is here.

A PowerPC macosx 10.4 binary is available here:

This moves the soundblaster to IRQ 7, and incorporates a bus fix & busmouse additon. Remember to remove the parallel port for this to work correctly. Tested with NeXTSTEP 3.3

Why all the patches, you may ask? Well for some reason NeXTSTEP is unable to correctly drive the mouse in Qemu. Nobody has tracked it down, but I suspect it’s some wierd issue with the BUS… Anyways I found this busmouse patch ages ago, and I’ve just been finagaling it for ages so that it will keep on working. I know that there are a hand full of enthusists left, but I figure that for all interested they would appreciate this.
