QEMU amd64 (qemu-amd64)

From postmarketOS
Jump to: navigation, search
This page is specific to running the x86_64 version of Qemu. Make sure to also read the common Qemu notes!

This device is used for testing purposes. It is possible to run postmarketOS in a x86_64 Virtual Machine. Note that only 64bits CPUs work.

QEMU will emulate the default x86_64 architecture (see qemu-system-x86_64 -machine help for more choices).
