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.
