For some reason I had issues for this to automatically pick up building Qemu 2.8.0 on Ubuntu 16.10 (Which is really Debian)…
Anyways, be sure to have the needed dev components installed. Â If you have a FRESH system, natrually you’ll need a lot more.
apt-get install libvdeplug-dev
apt-get install libvde-dev
apt-get install ncurses-dev
editing the file config-host.mak, I found I needed to add the following to turn on ncurses & VDE:
And lastly add in the following libs to the libs_softmmu, to ensure it’ll link
And now I’m good!
From my notes on flags needed to run Qemu the old fashioned way:
-net none -device pcnet,mac=00:0a:21:df:df:01,netdev=qemu-lan -netdev vde,id=qemu-lan,sock=/tmp/local/
This will join it to the VDEÂ listening in /tmp/local
Obviously I have something more interesting and more evil going on….
