Hi, registered 2008/08/05 23:23, just created my account and want to see the xo working. After browsing the wiki, I'm following the instructions to install the experimental package olpc_xo_qemu (Version: 0.009) by MitchellNCharity linked to in the Emulation Page . Let's see how it goes

Download and install

#python install
$ xo-qemu --new-user
Welcome to OLPC laptop emulation on QEMU. and
have instructions for gettings started.

Checking qemu... ok.
Checking qemu's kqemu...
Is kqemu installed?  I can't tell.
The emulated laptop is painfully slow without it.

It might be installed, but not available.
Usually this occurs when modprobe has not been run since you last rebooted.

I installed kqemu-common, then it says

It looks like kqemu is installed.
I don't know how to check if kqemu is working without starting a laptop.
If you see "QEMU acceleration layer not activated" when a laptop is first
started, then kqemu isn't working.
Usually this occurs when modprobe has not been run since you last rebooted.

OK I'M REBOOTING, but first I'll run 'xo-qemu --report', which is slow too

what is all this?


anyway I choose ship.2

$ xo-qemu --make-laptop test1 ship.2

fails, now I understand that --report connects to some site and lists builds available, it does not list the builds stored in the local folder. So I must download one?

$ xo-qemu --get-build ship.2 659 build

'build' folder, AND NOT 'builds' AS SHOWN IN THE EXAMPLE FOR --new-user, contained already some images

$ xo-qemu --make-laptop test1 ship.2

fails because the file name is not correct

$ xo-qemu --make-laptop test1 olpc-redhat-stream-ship.2-build-659-20080229_1949-devel_ext3.img.bz2

failed because the test1 Directory already existed, delete it and try again ...

it works.

After a minute or two, the laptop will start up,
run briefly to configure itself, and then shutdown.
You can then run it by saying: test1/xo on

qemu -kernel-kqemu -serial stdio -m 256 -net user -net nic,model=rtl8139 -hda test1/disk.img
