I'm trying to emulate raspbian on QEMU and there're plenty of guides available on internet. However, every guide points to download qemu-linux kernel from link https://xecdesign.com/downloads/linux-qemu/kernel-qemu however, this link is dead and I was unable to find an alternative link. Is there any alternative link to the kernel or guide how to compile kernel from source to use it for emulation?
Here is a link for that file I have uploaded it to dropbox. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g8u93xblz1v1ly0/kernel-qemu?dl=0
Also, it's been made available on github. Link --> https://github.com/dhruvvyas90/qemu-rpi-kernel
The above link does appear dead, however this one is good.
The answer seems to be pretty late but may help other people. About compiling the kernel from source for qemu, this link has a copy of the original xecdesign webpage as a pdf. Found it atlast !!
As mentioned before, dhruvvyas90 provides new patched kernels regularly.
Like you say, most guides are outdated and contain broken links. I recommend this updated guide (feb 2017).
It provides a script that will take care of conditioning of the raspbian image to run in QEMU for you, and will share your network connection with QEMU so you can run
apt-get and such.
