So I'd really really like to be able to use qemu to test my just
composed PPC trees. Alas I can't seem to find the magic key combos to
make this happen. Have any of you had any luck doing this? There
seems to be scarce documentation on the net about this as well.
Qemu's "Open Hackware" firmware doesn't really run FORTH scripts
properly -- it just looks at the CRC32 of the script and then does a
predefined action, if it recognises it. Last time I looked, it didn't
recognise the FORTH script we use on the Fedora boot media to test for
32-bit vs. 64-bit hardware. I think I sent a patch to remedy that.
I'm not sure if it's supposed to be able to run yaboot, but it doesn't
seem to. I've tried running the netboot images (which are just a zImage
containing kernel+initrd) and I think I had problems with that too --
but at least that was a qemu thing not firmware. It may be fixed now.
