Does anyone have a working recipe for installing Fedora on
qemu-system-ppc64 (host is x86-64)? I've been trying it for about a
day now, and just keep hitting bugs.
I can get the Fedora 19 netinst and DVD to boot fine using upstream
qemu from git and the following command:
-cpu POWER7 \
-M pseries \
-m 4096 \
-hda /dev/fedora/f20ppc64 \
-cdrom /tmp/Fedora-19-ppc64-DVD.iso \
-netdev user,id=usernet,net=169.254.0.0/16 \
However X11 cannot render anything:
What graphics device does qemu emulate? Are there alternatives
I could try?
Using a text-mode non-LVM Anaconda install proceeds a little further,
although is still buggy:
Finally it fails with "script error with package [some package name]":
And that's as far as I've got.
