I tried running the Fedora remix via qemu, per the instructions at http://www.cnx-software.com/tag/raspberry-pi/
, and it hangs up looping on the "Uncompressing Linux..." phrase.
The qemu command I ended up with was:
qemu-system-arm -M versatilepb -m 256 -hda raspberrypi-fedora-remix-14-r1.img -kernel zImage_3.1.9 -append "root=/dev/sda2" -serial stdio
Anyone have any idea what I might have wrong in the mix? I'd like to try to be sure my software is correct before my hardware arrives.
I finally managed to get it going. You need:-
qemu-system-arm -M versatilepb -cpu arm1176 -m 192 -hda raspberrypi-fedora-remix-14-r1.img -kernel zImage_3.1.9 -append "root=/dev/sda2" -serial stdio -redir tcp:2222::22 -net none A couple of problems. Networking does not work and neither does your keyboard when you try to log in. This is documented on the site and they are going to look at it again tomorrow. The setting up process is a complete bastard. Unbelievable. The casual user is going to give up weeping in despair. I wanted to poke out the eyes of whoever set the security level.The password changing regime is very very strict and if you are not really quick it just goes back to the beginning again. People are just not going to be happy with it.
