Subject: [9fans] Plan9 on qemu
Date: 2005年2月7日 13:37:08:JST
I was playing around with qemu the other day and came across
an issue that had been reported earlier. Namely, it would
hang after the two A0 lines and before the kernel was loaded.
It seemed as if the loader couldn't find anything. However,
the loader in the CD image worked fine and the install was
successful. Oddly, I noticed that even when plan9.ini was
set to boot from the disk image, if I invoked qemu with:
qemu -boot c -cdrom plan9.iso test.disk
it would still boot the iso image. This led me to try
qemu -boot c -cdrom test.disk test.disk
and things worked fine. So if anyone else is seeing this
sort of hang, here's a trick that should hold us until
things are happy again.
