Hello everyone. I recently installed the QEMU (0.8.2) CPU emulator / virtualisation system on Puppy Linux 2.00. I managed to get it to run by pointing it at an ext3 image that contains the Puppy 2.00 root filesystem. This is just to see if it works, my intension is to get Windows running on it. The problem is, the thing just opens an almost empty console window and does nothing else. It doesn't hang, it just seems to get stuck. Has anyone else encountered similar problems? Thanks.

Steven.

P.S. This problem occurs in full emulation mode (i.e. no kqemu accelerator module used).

Hi Joe. Yes I have read the manual, perhaps a bit too briefly. I've realised what I did wrong now; no boot code in the superblock of the ext3 image. I should have thought of that really. Thanks for the advice.

Steven.
