Hi everyone, I'm looking for a OS emulator like VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.. to install on Raspbian or other Raspberry Pi OS. I'd like to emulate another ARM OS but I don't know any software to do this. Any idea or suggestion?
If the ARM OS you're trying to run will work under Raspbian's kernel, then you won't need an emulator, but a container.
Instead of allocating a large chunk of RAM and emulating every CPU cycle, a container just runs the programs
of the second OS.
For example, my Pi Power Tools
uses systemd-nspawn to run a second instance of Raspbian in a container. Just give it a raspbian .img file, and push the boot button.
Ever wished you could "open" a RaspiOS .img file? Well now you can! I've developed Pi-Power-Tools
, the only RaspiOS img editor on the planet.
Want to try it out?
