Coherent on Qemu

well apparently it *DOES* work, however the disk access is incredibly slow, like 1kb/sec slow.. I can’t help but wonder if it is somehow tied to how NetWare 3.12 bombs on Qemu once it tries to mount a volume….

Anyways, you can read all about it on “The beez speaks:” which goes into some detail on how to dump Qemu’s running state, and restore.. Kind of handy actually.

I remember the print ads for Coherent, nearly bought it but I felt too weirded out by it being mail order. ┬áMy loss I guess, but it sure would have been nice to have before the whole rise of 386 BSD / Linux …

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!

  1. Apparently, the speed problems are gone with QEMU 1.1, i’m currently running it and it isn’t as slow as it was before.
