QEMU version 1.5.0-rc2 is out!

I’ll have to see if my semi-broken win32 build environment can kick something out that is usable….

maybe it’ll work with gcc 4.7??

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. Is there any special thing that you need to do to boot an iso in version 1.4.x and 1.5.0? I’ve found a google codes project that is compiling 32bit and 64bit qemu binaries but qemu stops working when I try to boot an iso (hard disk images work though).
    I try using;
    “qemu-system-i386 -cdrom name-of-iso.iso” which is the old way of doing it and
    “qemu-system-i386 -drive file=name-of-iso.iso,index=2,media=cdrom”
    both qemu starts and then I get an error message saying that qemu has stopped working.
    I’m on Windows 7 32bit.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

      • I found it here.
        https://code.google.com/p/i18n-zh/
        I raised a bug on the project just to see if I get an answer.

        I also found this one which works as long as you have all the dlls (i got from GTK+ as it suggests)

        (this one shows the options used in building qemu).

        Cheers for the reply neozeed. Since the qemu forum went offline there are not many people to talk to about qemu on windows.

  2. I was able to build this release of qemu (1.5.0) with MinGW from November 2011 and by using your building 1.1.1-1 tutorial neozeed (plus compiling pixman) and, again, the issue of the crash in the hard disk boot is probably related to the coroutine-win32.c file.

    • oh dear, not the infamous O2 vs O1 on coroutine….

      Thanks for the tip on which MinGW I’ll flush out my install and try that again.

      Maybe this time in a VM so I don’t trash my base install (again).. grrr…

  3. I’m in need of the OS/2 2.1 recovery media, preferably files that can be placed on 1.44 3.5″ diskettes. I’d appreciate any and all feedback as to how or where these files may be acquired. Kindly contact me as soon as you can.
    Thanks “todah” Much,
