Qemu + Q800 + EMILE

Post by dmbtech »

Sorry, I am having a memory lane attack, and saw on mailing list for the q800 patch (https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/q ... 00114.html) that linux should be able to boot via EMILE. Has anyone figured out how to get it to boot, I can't get the toolbox rom (or qemu) to boot with images on the sourceforge page.

~/qemu-q800/bin/qemu-system-m68k \ ~/mac68k
-M q800 \
-m 128 \
-bios Q800.ROM \
-display sdl \
-device scsi-hd,scsi-id=0,drive=fd0 \
-drive file=rescue-2.2.27-rc2_0.12.bin,media=disk,format=raw,if=none,id=fd0

I have also tried with cdrom image, etc and nothing, just the good old flashing disk icon.

The EMILE ISO image I've been testing with was provided by the Laurent who is maintainer of the EMILE project - I'm not sure exactly where it came from, but it certainly works with the latest QEMU 68k series. I think you'll need to contact the EMILE project for further information here.
