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.

  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?

  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.
