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 dI 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 dAnd 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.....
