Hi again,

After further culling the target list, I was able to install qemu on my
sun4u host.

However, running it, I get a bus error. See below for details:

$ /opt/qemu-cvs/bin/qemu -m 128 -cdrom
~/KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso -vnc :1
Bus error

For some reason, Sparc Linux host is not working. I think Sparc Solaris is OK.

Yes, I do recall that I was able to get this working on Sparc Solaris. Anyway, when I get more time, I will have a better stab at debugging this. I got a start on this today, and here is a bit of cut and paste that may or may not be insightful. The address for env1 looks questionable:

address@hidden:~/qemu-cvs/qemu-build$ gdb --args ./i386-softmmu/qemu -hda ../../KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso -L ../qemu/pc-bios

PS: couldn't this also be debugged from within qemu VM running Debian Sparc, for those that don't have access to a real machine? I got a start on this today as well (because I don't always have access to the Sun Ultra box). Seems stable, and I was able to get a start on a compile, that is currently still going.
