Hi Antonio:

Thank you for your reply.

In that case, as per my understanding:

.  download dfly 2.2.1 dvd iso for intel

.  install dfly 2.2.1 on a i386/intel box

.  login as root

.  update BINPKG_SITES in /etc/settings.conf

.  pkg_add -v scmgit

.  cd /usr

.  make git-clone

.  cd /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/qemu

.  make install clean

.  cd /usr/src/test/amd64

.  http://gitweb.dragonflybsd.org/dragonfly.git/blob/HEAD:/test/amd64/Makefile
  there is just a Makefile

  # make all

.  qemu-system-x86_64 -m 900m root.img

Does this look ok to you ?

Additionally, i've the following queries:

 . what do i specify for BINPKG_SITES
 . do i need to create a hdd image using qemu-img to be used as
   hard disk ?
 . dfly 2.2.1 liveCD on startx just seems to hang, so is it a
   better approach to install it first to the disk ?
 . what do i need to do to get the network 'bridge' work ?

Appreciate your replies and suggestions.
