I recently posted this in the qemu users forum online, but I doubt it's going to get answered there...

I recently bought an iMac G5 (1.8 GHz, 1 gig of RAM), and ran the qemu release for OS X (0.6.0 I believe). When I tried to install Windows 98 SE, the installer always died right at the beginning, and when I tried to install SUSE Linux, it was just pretty slow. So I'm wondering if there's any options I could use to compile qemu for use with OS X on a G5 (i.e. specific ways to optimize it for use with a G5 and/or OS X). Or will qemu not run at all in OS X without being specifically modified to do so? (Keep in mind I know nothing about this type of coding, so I wouldn't be able to tweak the code myself).

I did some tests on my G4 and compiling with the added option "-mcpu=7400" (for my TiBook) yields a 8% speed increase. You do not need any other modification, just grab the latest CVS. I have no problem with the installation of W98 either with my compiled version or the 0.6.0 package.

I'll be interested in your results. I don't know if anybody else on the list has tested qemu on a G5, and I am planning to buy one in not too long a time.
