G'day all,

The -kernel-kqemu with linux guest bug is still at large, however it appears if 
you compile your
kernel with gcc-3.2.2 it will work. (yay!). Further investigation continues.
I've posted a monolithic 2.6.16 kernel compiled with gcc-3.2.2 at


Someone may get some use out of it.. just use it with the -kernel command line 
and don't forget to
-append "root=/blah"

In addition, I grabbed a vnc patch from late last year and bent it a little to 
get it to fit the
latest cvs. While I was there I horridly kludged it so that it compiles with 
--disable-sdl to save
it linking with the sdl and X libs (which I don't want to install on my servers 
if I can avoid it).
It's all been lightly tested in various combinations of vnc and sdl and appears 
to do the job. Usual
caveats about mouse sync in vnc apply (not that I use it in graphics mode 
anyway, but I did test it
with knoppix).
You'll find the patch at the above location also, but be warned.. it works, but 
it's really ugly.

to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable
for their apparent disinclination to do so." -- Douglas Adams
