Virtualization on the PinebookPro
#1
Starting a thread on Virtualization technology possible on the PinebookPro 

Wrote a summary on how to use

KVM accelerated qemu-system-aarch64

Non aarch64 qemu-system-xxxx   (powerpc, powerpc64 ... can be anything else really  like i386 and x86_64)

SimH (VAX - OpenVMS and Ultrix UNIX + 4.3BSD)

Hyperion - Hercules (SystemZ Mainframes )

Awesome articles, thanks for sharing!

Have you tried GPU passthrough on the PBP? Will it work?

Are you running Manjaro ? And how did you build qemu ?

Yeah , just checked the it just gets stuck now in the Tiano Core "start boot option" ... Im on panfrost too, I had no idea this could be affecting this, but its rather trange, it worked really well earlier (did not really used it afterwards) I recall Manjaro was on kernel 5.4   (and Im using a same build of qemu from Dec 1 2019) 

I will try to reinstall fbturbo and check with that (I have used that primarily a long time before switching to panfrost) but it sounds really strange why should it behave like it does now ...

I will update this post once I know whats going on more ...

Anybody here still has the Manjaro Pinebookpro Preview 4 candidate ? With the Kernel 5.4 https://osdn.net/projects/manjaro-arm/st.../preview4/\
I need to see what was changed from 5.4 to 5.5 .. there seems to be some issues (performance wise) with the latest Manjaro 5.5.0 kernel and qemu-system-aarch64 KVM

OK, so the fault is with the kernel 5.5.0
Just did a clean install of https://osdn.net/projects/manjaro-arm/st....12.img.xz  on a separate micorSD card ,
disabled kernel updates in /etc/pacman.confg

IgnorePkg = linux-pinebookpro 

Upgraded the system to latest packages while keeping the kernel 5.4.0-1.5  and Windows 10 arm64 works perfectly again
