DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2009-08
Qemu in the pkgsrc
I updated qemu in the pkgsrc to the 0.10.6 version and have all the
patches floating around relevant to DragonFly. There are also patches
which make bsd user emulation build, but it doesn't really work:
bash: /usr/pkg/bin/qemu-sparc64: cannot execute binary file
$ file /usr/pkg/bin/qemu-sparc64
/usr/pkg/bin/qemu-sparc64: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386,
version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, for DragonFly 2.0.206, stripped
My wild guess from very short investigation is this:
# WARNING: this LDFLAGS is _very_ tricky : qemu is an ELF shared object
# that the kernel ELF loader considers as an executable. I think this
# is the simplest way to make it self virtualizable!
It would be nice if someone with free timeslots, could take a look.
