For all you mainframe/Qemu fan’s I came across the ‘QEMU Advent Calendar‘, which includes Moon Buggy on s390!
Moon-buggy is an ascii art game styled after moon-patrol.
Since I do get people always requesting something to run on the Qemu s390 emulation, here you go! Â And for Windows users, I packed it up somewhat to make it somewhat easy to run with the image files, emulator and ansicon as moon.7z .
Just unpack and run “run32.cmd” for the 32bit ansicon, or “run64.cmd” for the 64bit ansicon.
That’s from Dec 22nd… so you kinda spoiled (part of) the calendar. 😉
Nice find anyway – the calendar. Did not know about it. Thanks for sharing!
It’s also from last year… so it’s not too spoiled
Is it possible to run GDB “against” qemu / moonbuggy ?
If so, what is the “target file name” to give to GDB ?
I’ve tried to use gdb ./s390-bb.kernel
but get :
s390-moon-buggy/s390-bb.kernel”: not in executable format: file format not recognized
Before starting gdb I entered : (in another terminal)
exec qemu-system-s390x -M s390-ccw-virtio-2.10 -nographic \
-kernel s390-bb.kernel \
-initrd s390-moon-buggy.initrd \
-S -gdb tcp::4269
This is all using Ubuntu under windows (if that matters)
– Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
