Greetings....

I've been wanting to do VirtualBox again but didn't want to try and install it with the Slack pkgs....so I remembered some of you using QEMU.  I searched the Slackware 14.1 repository, downloaded and installed qmenu and aqemu.  Aqemu is a graphical interface to QEMU and KVM emulators.  I made a directory called "virtual" and copied a few iso's I had to that new directory.  Back at the terminal I entered "agemu" and viola! I'm seeing something similar to virtualbox.  Only problem was I hadn't a clue as to what needed to be done in order to get a virtual machine up and running.  So I searched youtube.....one of the hits brought me to https://www.youtube....h?v=JvkL3B475cE.  In his example he doesn't use aqemu.  What he did was:
qemu -hda virtualdisk.img -cdrom *.iso -boot d
I tried that but get an error message saying I didn't have qemu!  I did have qemu-kvm, so I tried:
qemu-kvm -hda virtualdisk.img -cdrom *.iso -boot d
And voila DSL booted up!  Cool!!  Now I just need to learn how to get control of my mouse when I end a session!  lol

update:  Just discovered how to get control of my mouse.....

virt-manager is much easier to use.

Just follow this https://wiki.archlin...dex.php/libvirt

Actually virt-manager runs all the long qemu commands for you. It is similar to how virtualbox looks and acts.

Its basically a gui for qemu commands

Also, I connect to these over ssh to my headless servers but you can also do these locally on your machine as well.
