My experiences with Visopsys install on QEMU virt disk

There seems to be an easier path (at least for me) when installing Visopsys to a QEMU virtual hard disk. I thought I'd share my experiences, so that others may benefit (or can correct me if I'm missing something). This post describes what can be done in the case where Visopsys has panic-ed during th...

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

Was able to put Visopsys on QEMU virtual hard drive, after I laid down the MBR explicitly in partitioner. Maybe that's what I was sometimes doing incorrectly in the past - anyway, it works. Here's the bottom of the kernel log:

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

Andy, you've made some very interesting improvements in v.82. Wow! Attached my little test from a minute ago, run on an Odroid QEMU (ARM) setup.

Needless to say: great work!

Re: Visopsys 0.82 released

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the update (.82). I'm going to try it this evening.

It looks like you're working on layer two networking code. Is the DHCP client far along? Any projections as to milestones in the higher level network stack?

For using the latest and greatest open source project, that's only been ported to Linux, I might use that OS (I prefer Alpine). For a network-ready, quick starting live CD/USB OS, I might use Haiku on a PC, or RiscOSOpen ...

Re: Visopsys 0.81 Released

Hi Ron, thanks! Nice to see you again :-) Glad to hear things are working better for you. My new-ish workstation is similar to yours, except maybe a couple of years newer - 8-core, Athlon64, Asus or Asrock (something like that) motherboard, and Nvidia. It's got several USB (1+2+3) controllers and d...
