I had to resort to the -net none option or else it would crash every time I booted it up.
Now I am struggling to get a resolution higher than 640x480. I have not found any command line switches that will get me a higher resolution. I tried the -g switch but when I add that qemu does not even start.
For the network problem, it happened to me when I tried the Fedora image. I compiled the latest version of qemu-linaro (http://www.cnx-software.com/20.....-in-linux/
) and worked for me.
To change the resolution to 800x600 :
Create the file “/etc/X11/xorg.conf” with the following content:
Identifier “Default Screen”
# Viewport 0 0
