QEMU only works on sparc-linux. However, if someone gives me an access to a 
sparc/solaris workstation, I can try to make the system emulator work.


Hello Fabrice,
hi all,

Based on Erics patch at http://digitaleric.net/solaris.patch ,
  I got QEMU 0.6.0 from
http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-0.6.0.tar.gz compiling and
perfectly up and running on a Solaris_x86 10_60 host.
Due to the version mismatch (patch vs QEMU 0.6.0) I had to apply it
manually and vl.c required some tweaking.
The slirp subdirectory caused lots of compiletime errors.
I needed to configure with "./configure --disable-slirp".
If anyone is interested in the Solaris_x86 - ready tree, feel free to
send me a mail requesting it. (for now)
I plan to release a binary package in Solaris/SVR4-pkgadd package format
on my personal university homepage soon, but I will have to check
licensing issues first.

Since most of our machines are UltraSPARC based (only 1 PC), I was
hoping I could compile that modified tree under Solaris9 SPARC.
I edited [QEMU_ROOT]/configure (adjusted it to 'uname -p'for cpu
detection) and the build process started real work, but failed on vl.c
with "unsupported cpu" (see the end of this mail).
I couldn't even find the strings 'SPARC' or 'sparc' in vl.c - while x86,
ppc and so have a lot of specific code inside of it.
I rebooted in 32 bit mode but that didn't help.
I'm not (yet?) skilled enough to do such a port.
I wonder how QEMU is able to compile under Linux/SPARC32  based hosts
w/o having SPARC related code inside of vl.c or did you use another
source tree?

If your offer is still valid (which would just be g*r*e*a*t), I'll come
back to you on that, please send me your shipping address!
While I don't have a real economical need to run QEMU on Solaris_SPARC
[I use SunPCi and now address@hidden over the network :)) ]  I would
love to see it running.
I will send you both an Ultra and an older 32bit SPARCstation as well as
an appropriate  Solaris admin media kit.
The license is free for noncommercial use.

Thank you all for QEMU,
best regards,
