as fabrice mentioned before (I just read the post thanx to address@hidden) there is the darwine project. iThink that it would be of great benefit to them and to qemu if some of the people here started talking to some of the people there.

Getting Wine merged with QEMU to get the 'X86 application running emulated -
Wine DLLs natively' combo is way WAY harder to get working than just getting
QEMU running on OS/X with the former 'emulating' the Linux syscalls using
OS/X syscalls.

The second option is just boring grunt work whereas the first one needs a
lot more work and design thoughts...

I definitely agree :-)

Another point : if some people are really interested to get QEMU work on MacOSX, a simpler task is to port 'vl' on MacOS X. 'vl' works currently only on x86, but there is really no reason for it not to be portable.

'vl' has the potential of launching _any_ x86 OS on PowerPC as it integrates now hardware level emulation for all the standard PC components (except a sound card).

Currently Linux and Freedos can be launched. Soon, unpatched Linux kernels, MSDOS and *bsd will run smoothly...
