Re: Raspberry Pi 4 and QEMU (x86/x64)

Here is the solution. Compile it right from source. https://github.com/qemu/qemu It will take about 4 hours to compile on a Pi 4. Just be sure to read the instructions and be sure to call a 'make install' after it successfully compiles (with sudo preferably) to install it in the proper directories s...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 and QEMU (x86/x64)

No one knows, because no one has done it? Most will be able to help with ARM QEMU on a x86 box. You want to do x86 QEMU on a ARM box. That might take longer to answer as only the Pi4 is perhaps good enough to do it and not enough have been out in the wild long enough. Right, I think so as well. The...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 and QEMU (x86/x64)

Sorry to push a thread back up - but anyone? I've been desperately trying to find a solution to this. Someone had to have run into this by now in some way?

Is there anything you'd like for me to run to any info to give to the forum/thread?

Raspberry Pi 4 and QEMU (x86/x64)

Hello folks! So I've been trying to get any x86-based OS working using QEMU and AQEMU as the front-end GUI and for the life of me, I have not been able to install any operating system. Be it any windows distribution from 95 onwards, to Linux or ReactOS. It seems as if the tinycode translator is not ...

Re: Setting up Qemu on pi 4?

I wouldn't bother with Qemu on the Pi 4 right now. Even if you got it running, the tinyxode translator from arm to x86/x64 is totally broken. I can't even install Windows 98 without it completely breaking during the install. I have not been able to install one single OS on a Pi 4 with Qemu. Somethin...

Re: Eltechs and Exagear

At a guess... It was a commercial venture. They had few customers and did not make enough money to make it worth continuing. My thoughts too. Raspberry pi in general is fairly niche, plus x86 emulation is even more-so. Probably just couldn't make enough to keep the doors open. It just surprised me ...
