Torbjörn Granlund’s Excellent resource on running free OS’s on Qemu

Ever get tired of x86 on x86?  yeah me too.

How to solve that problem?

Simple, grab QEMU, and jump off into all those cool RISC processors of the 1990’s that were going to save us all from the WINTEL hegemony!

Lots of instructions, samples, images, and hints here:

It’s really more comprehensive than I’ve sat down to do, so yeah it’s awesome!

Supported platforms include:

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. Indeed it is a great resource (it has been on the QEMU SPARC wiki page for a while now), good to see that it has been updated recently as the world of QEMU moves at a rapid pace…

  2. Pretty good resources on how to run free OSes under Qemu.

    Speaking of Qemu, has anyone attempted to run MS-DOS with WFW 3.11, Windows 95 or OS/2 under Qemu 2.7?
