Virtualization on the PinebookPro
#11
after kernel downgrade, still being dropped into efi shell. are you using panfrost? ill try fbturbo

i did deviate from your guide by fixing a failed compile with an include to fix undefined reference to makedev when building uml_utils, would be funny if that somehow broke something but i doubt

nothing on fbturbo either
huh

Any chance on running a windows XP x86 (for car maintenance)?
It's a virtualbox image at the moment and needs to connect to a ODBII cable on usb

Of course you can run it via qemu-system-i386 -- its not that "slow" really .. I can demo the speed if you want .. will post a video online

Thanks, I'll look into it. Don't care much about speed. Just needs to run 1 app which only works on Winxp Smile

Do you need to verify if USB pass-through works on PBPRO with qemu and XP ?

OK. so I have made some quick tests on this (video would be a boring 7 minute watching boot screen ) and can summarize it as follows :

Manjaro 20.4 aarch64
- Qemu built from source (git clone current)
- WinXP SP3 with virtio drivers (storage)
-Qemu-system-i386 (no KVM acceleration, + if=virt for disk qcow2 image)
- emulated rtl8139 network

Takes exactly 7 minutes to boot to the desktop on the Pinebook Manjaro 20.4
So you can make conclusions yourself about the usability here Smile

@astr0baby Have you had any luck getting Windows 10 for ARM running on a newer edition of the Manjaro kernel (since we are up to 5.6 now). I have been attempting to, but running into issues I don't have the experience yet to diagnose. Mostly it is just hanging after I ask it to boot from the DVD with the tianocore logo and a single core 100% allocated (showing all IRQ in htop).

I can only run Win10 arm64 with KVM acceleration on the 5.4 Kernel still investigating why this is so

i tried win xp when using manjaro, worked ok.  don't expect it to run KOTOR2 at the moment.
Power Distribution Tech and AV by trade, but I have been using Linux since around 2002.  I like the raspberry pi and pinebook pro, SBCs and the possibilities they open.

I installed QEMU and VirtManager through the package manager.
But now I'm stuck with a missing firmware.
How do I get a firmware to start a VM?
