OK just try to run qemu-system-ppc.exe vanilla without parameters, if it report this error too, if not add parameters one by one to find which is generating this error.

Hi,

Yes, I see this error too in a windows 7 virtual machine. No real idea what causes it. But if I had to guess, it has something to do with the dll's included in the compiler on Fedora Linux I use to build those executables.

Non-experimental builds do run (but only without -sdl)

Thank you for the help but it's doesn't work. I get the error even with no parameters in the bat file.

I've tried other builds and different boot iso's too.

Either I get the GDI32 error or I just get a blank cmd32 window that never goes away.

Hi Cat_7,

I'm trying to compile latest version of binaries for Linux but for some reason it fails downloading sources from git.
How I would compile latest experimental version or both? Are there different, separate sources or parameters to compile?

Thom

Concerning the Windows 7 problem:

I tried building from the official repository and such a build also fails on windows 7. So it is not related to the screamer code.
As the GDI32 dll is a windows dll I assume my compiler/qemu are now relying on the version that is available in Windows 10.

Besides the obvious inconvenience that this presents to Windows 7 users, I would remark that Windows 7 is almost obsolete.

If you know where pleas report bug report, some people are using Windows 7 just because they dont like Windows 10 appearance or data telemetry.
I search a lot, but i never found some nice Qemu forum, they should be something like that, they probably still living in age of mailing list and IRC, what is in direct contraction to not support Windows 7 which even MS still supporting.

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

I guess you might try the official windows builds from Stefan Weil. Note his builds do not support sound, as the code for that is not in the official repository. Also, our guides do not cover them.

https://qemu.weilnetz.de/

Bug reports should go to the bugtracker: https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/
EDIT: I suggest you do not send there bug reports based on the builds we provide.

Hi Thom,

Those instructions should still work. It might be you experienced a time-out on the download from those additional repositories. Sometimes happens to me as well. Just try again after a while.

Hi Cat_7,

It stops around 20-21% with this message:

Code:
Cloning into 'qemu-screamer'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 476200, done.
error: RPC failed; curl 56 OpenSSL SSL_read: error:14095126:SSL routines:ssl3_read_n:unexpected eof while reading, errno 0
fatal: the remote end hung up unexpectedly

Tried yesterday and today no difference, two different PCs.
Btw is that repository with ATI and Screamer or just Screamer?

Edit: It must be my connection. Asked friend of my and He just downloaded it fine.

I have now compiled latest qemu /qemu with screamer sound support with msys2. At least in my virtual machine with Windows 7, they run OK.

Find them here (under experimental builds):

@Thom

Both screamer and regular qemu now "support" the ati card. You will need, however, the openbios from our ati-related download to run with the ati card enabled.

EDIT:
I got a message from the developer saying:
the ATI bios may not be enough for MacOS with current upstream QEMU
because I think this patch is still needed to fix some mouse issues:

http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1147878/

and that was not taken in QEMU yet. But there's also absolutely no
advantage using ati-vga vs. standard vga yet as it's still using the same
unaccalerated framebuffer because the parts of the card needed for
accelerated graphics are not yet emulated so anyone interested in using
ati-vga might want to read here:

https://osdn.net/projects/qmiga/wiki/SubprojectAti

(and help to finish emulation if they are able to).

Hey Cat_7
You can ask to build version 5.0.0 rc2 for Windows, apparently it is faster and AmigaOS4.1FE does not work on version rc0 (MorphOS3.11 works)
Thanks.

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Thu Apr 16, 2020 8:19 am

New Windows build from Qemu 5.0 RC3 code is available in the first post under experimental builds.
Not tested in Windows 7.

Hi Dear Cat_7:
I have a problem in installing MacOS9.2 to the "Qemu 4.2 with screamer sound support" experimental build edition,when I execute the .bat file it comes as "dsound: Could not initialize DirectSoundCapture" and "dsound: Reason: No sound driver is available for use, or the given GUID is not a valid DirectSound device ID".And my operating system is Win10 64bit edition, Do you have any idea in solving this problem? Thank you!
Thanks,
Vonvan Row.

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Mon Apr 20, 2020 4:34 am

Its own problem that Qemu 4.2 has broken sound on windows.

There some diff files for source fixing:

Thank you for replying me,I had download two diff files,but I don't know where should I put it in.Thank you!

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Mon Apr 20, 2020 7:38 am

You cannot simply put those files somewhere and expect things to work. You would need to compile qemu yourself with those patches applied. I believe the current qemu source has these (or at least comparable) fixes included.

I think you error might be caused by windows 10 not allowing access to your microphone (even though Qemu-system-ppc cannot use it).

To Fix: Click Start, go to ⚙ Settings> Privacy Settings> Microphone. Turn On "Allow apps to access your microphone"

Dear Mr Cat_7,you are right when I re-install my audio drive it works,but there is still a problem that the sound is broken,do you have any idea about this?

Thanks!

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Mon Apr 20, 2020 2:00 pm

Patch should fix both dsound message error and broken sound.. but if you have half broken sound with screamer its normal.

These files are some simple patch, you have to download source, add text from diff files into it and build it, its not easy.

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Fri May 01, 2020 8:58 am

2 new qemu-system-ppc sound-enabled builds for Windows have landed:

viewtopic.php?f=34&t=9028&p=53788#p53788
(find them under experimental builds)

Note that they are both still experimental, and in the case of the build with fpu speed-up even extremely experimental as no guarantee is provided for correct fpu results.

Happy testing,
Cat_7

Re: Qemu package and guide for Windows available

Fri May 01, 2020 3:24 pm

I just wanna ask, are those experimental windows builds going to be ported to osx too ? It is just something to wonder about, emulating on older apple os apparently grows quicker on a Microsoft platform ? Really some paradox no ?
