Qemu 1.5.0 on OS X

Well it does compile somewhat easily, but after some disk access, it just deadlocks. It didn’t matter if it was writeback, writethrough, or none, it just deadlocks.

Such a shame.  But I thought I’d at least keep the world up to date.

And something like this….


I know it is mostly meaningless but Qemu 1.2.0/1.2.2 build & work fine for me.

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. I’ve compiled the latest git release of qemu (that is newer than 1.5.1) from scratch and it runs fine, even WinXP x64 running fine on my win32 build of qemu 1.5.50 (qemu-system-x86_64.exe)

    • I need to see what it was built / linked against… after you run configure it tells you what it is going to build… can you provide that?

      • I was pretty sure pixman was in the qemu tree. Can you provide the build summary or not?

        I get the feeling Qemu just plain doesn’t work at this point as nobody can show their build environment.

  2. Also, I’ve compiled a win64 build of qemu without cross-compiling with linux 😀
    (though you need mingw-w64 with msys for win64)

    • I don’t suppose there is any hope anyone will ever post what binaries they used, what steps? is performance even remotely satisfactory?

      or am I just wasting time even asking since nobody is willing to share how they configure their build system, what build options were picked up in their build or pretty much anything.
