I'm trying to emulate RaspbianOS on my Arch Linux host using
qemu-system-arm. and I have run into some problems.
The emulation works fine using the machine
versatilepbbut when invoking qemu-system-arm using
-M raspi2, all I get is a black window.
What is the problem ? can I make it run using
virtas the machine type?
Second, I used a Raspbian Stretch and the custom kernel was a jessie which I picked from here. When I replace the jessie custom kernel a stretch one, I get a black window with the message guest has not initialized display yet.
What is the role of the qemu-kernel and why does the qemu-stretch-kernel not work?
Finallly, to work properly the image has to be mounted in order to add these lines to
KERNEL=="sda", SYMLINK+="mmcblk0" KERNEL=="sda?", SYMLINK+="mmcblk0p%n" KERNEL=="sda2", SYMLINK+="root"
what is their signification ? and why are they added ?
Here is the command that I ran succesfully:
qemu-system-arm -kernel kernel-qemu-4.4.26-jessie -cpu arm1176 -m 256 -M versatilepb \ -no-reboot -drive format=raw,file=2018-10-09-raspbian-stretch-lite.img
