Thank you for your reply.
In that case, as per my understanding:
. download dfly 2.2.1 dvd iso for intel
. install dfly 2.2.1 on a i386/intel box
. login as root
. update BINPKG_SITES in /etc/settings.conf
. pkg_add -v scmgit
. cd /usr
. make git-clone
. cd /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/qemu
. make install clean
. cd /usr/src/test/amd64
there is just a Makefile
# make all
. qemu-system-x86_64 -m 900m root.img
Does this look ok to you ?
Additionally, i've the following queries:
. what do i specify for BINPKG_SITES
. do i need to create a hdd image using qemu-img to be used as
hard disk ?
. dfly 2.2.1 liveCD on startx just seems to hang, so is it a
better approach to install it first to the disk ?
. what do i need to do to get the network 'bridge' work ?
Appreciate your replies and suggestions.
