After recent successes (
) getting meego running under Fedora using http://www.linux-kvm.org/
and http://www.qemu.org/ I was looking up how to solve the
networking/routing issue when I found this:
Which inspired me to try it out... following these directions, e.g.
gnulem-105-~/windows-qemu> qemu-img create -f qcow windows.img 6G
Formatting 'windows.img', fmt=qcow size=6442450944 encryption=off
gnulem-109-~/windows-qemu> qemu -localtime -cdrom /dev/dvd -m 1024
-boot d windows.img
results in an ever-growing file
-rw-r--r-- 1 npm npm 632M 2010-10-27 18:50 windows.img
And a reminder of why i hate windows -- installs take forever and
require multiple reboots:
... and hopefully, eventually, in a few hours (the "36 minutes" from
the installer is bogus) I'll have my own legal copy of win xp running
on linux (from an old system restoration disk i had from an old and no
longer working laptop).... of course, to be able to use windows,
without puking all over the DOS shell, I'll have to install cygwin.
Which is pretty perverse: Running windows in a kvm so you can have
xemacs, bash, xterms from windows on linux..... It would be
interesting to see how well Windows audio production programs run
using this technique instead of Wine.
