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. 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 VDE listening in /tmp/local
Obviously I have something more interesting and more evil going on….
