I am interested by a GTK GUI for QEMU and I think it should be commited in the main QEMU CVS.

Some notes about the GUI:

- Avoid using SDL or SDL wrappers: it is simpler to use plain GTK or GDK to draw the VGA frame buffer.

- I am not sure that handling multiple VMs running at the same time is very useful (some architectural changes are needed in QEMU). But switching easily between VM configurations seems interesting.

- The VM description management must be integrated in the QEMU core. I plan to work on it soon (Renzo Davoli sent patch I need to study).

- The VM console should be available in a separate TAB for the hackers !

- Of course there should be commands to eject/insert medias, to change the hard disk images and to update the VM configuration (ideally a simple dialog for dummies and a more technical one to change IRQs, IO ports, number of interfaces).

another question: are there sources available for the linux frontend? many
people on this list will also test the frontend, which would certainly
speed up its development.

Dear Rudi,

I contacted Alex on Morphix mailing list about this issue. My post is:
