Subject: [Qemu-devel] precompiled qemu-system-x86_64 is 32 bit instead
I downloaded http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-0.9.1-i386.tar.gz
and I'm using an AMD Opteron.
Is this version the correct one for my system ?
If You want qemu for your amd64 linux system, You should compile it
yourself or install from Your linux distribution repository.
This site (http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/download.html) doesn't
contain precompiled linux binaries except for i386 platform.
However You could execute i386 binaries on amd64 linux platform. :)
