Two important steps for running OpenBSD under Qemu
June 10, 2007
The most important thing to know about OpenBSD and Qemu which you probably won’t find out until after you run into a problem is that OpenBSD hates kqemu. So, if you have kqemu installed, you need to run qemu with the
-no-kqemu option. Otherwise the installer will just hang with no evident reason why.
$ wump also works, so long as you’re not afraid of a little
(I presume that decades from now, when someone googles that whole OpenBSD install hangs in Qemu thing and ends up here, they don’t actually take my second point seriously. I grew up on – CP/M-based – Wumpus-hunting and – Parker Bros. – Mille Bornes. bsdgames is a package dear to my heart.)
