QEMU on Windows is also confused, or I am.
http://sugarlabs.org/go/Supported_systems/Windows still points to
Wade's fine bundle and detailed steps from Ton van Overbeek but both
are to run OLPC 8.2.0 images which is old Sucrose.
and its parent have lots of information about QEMU, but mostly
I put today's SoaS2 ISO in my dusty old qemu 0.9.0 directory on
Windows XP. I think you use "-cdrom Soas2-200903121944.iso" to make
C:\Qemu> net start kqemu
The KQEMU virtualisation module for QEMU service was started successfully.
C:\Qemu>qemu.exe -L . -m 256 -kernel-kqemu -soundhw es1370 -net user
-net nic,model=rtl8139 -cdrom Soas2-200903121944.iso
Version mismatch between kqemu module and qemu (00010400 00010300) -
disabling kqemu use
Maybe that's why it's mind-blowingly slow to boot.
QEMU 0.10 is out, but the two Japanese URLs don't have Windows
binaries. Some random person at
http://qemu-forum.ipi.fi/viewtopic.php?f=5&p=14435 has a Windows
build, while a compatible kqemu accelerator is nowhere to be found.
There is a QEMU 0.9.1 Windows binary, I don't know if available kqemu
works for it.
Emulating OLPC OS Images with QEMU has been difficult on any platform
ever since the 3DNow! extensions problem arose, I think that's why
Wade and Ton van Overbeek made special binaries. But maybe old
versions of qemu/kqemu are fine for SoaS images.
