Can anyone point me a tutorial on emulation for the completely clueless person? (To be clear: I'm willing to learn the command line stuff, I just need something that doesn't assume I know it)

I have been instructed to set up a QEMU emulation and this question pointed to a tutorial that did not help much.

I also tried to run Q on my Mac but I don't understand a single thing...

    Why no "command line stuff?" You need to use the command line to use the Pi, emulated or not. Dec 5, 2015 at 22:38
  • Sure, I want to learn the command line stuff. I mean at this point I have to be led by the hand as I know very little and I couldn't follow the instructions I found.

  • Why not get a Pi and avoid the extra complication of virtualization. Dec 6, 2015 at 11:43
  • I don't have my Pi with me right now and I would like to play with it.

    What these gentlemen are not telling you is that they do not know how to nicely boot a pi image with qemu arm. For obvious reasons (snapshots, no need to re-image after big errors) this is something we all want to do. See blog.3mdeb.com/2015/12/30/emulate-rapberry-pi-2-in-qemu and blog.flexvdi.com/2015/03/17/… . I needed to do this a while back, please provide feedback when you find the correct method for pi2/3.
