QEMU amd64 (qemu-amd64)
This device is used for testing purposes. It is possible to run postmarketOS in a x86_64 Virtual Machine. QEMU will emulate the default x86_64 architecture (see
qemu-system-x86_64 -machine help for more choices).
$ pmbootstrap init # Choose device "qemu-amd64" $ pmbootstrap install --no-fde $ pmbootstrap qemu --image-size=2G
pmbootstrap qemu --help for more options. Notably
--spice uses the SPICE protocol, which may give you better 3D acceleration. The
--display=gtk switch allows you to see the serial output, but we didn't get 3D acceleration working with it. Default output is SDL (where 3D acceleration is working for most setups).
- Keyboard and mouse
- Graphical interfaces (Weston, Plasma Mobile, ...)
What does not work
- X11 over vesa: see #672
osk-sdlsegfaults without --spice
- QEMU running weston
- QEMU running Plasma Mobile
