[Qemu-devel] PCI NEK and Cirrus Logic 5446 Issues

Hi All,

I am running the windows port of Qemu. Currently I am using the
QemuInstall_20040707.exe version from freeoszoo, but have used the version
from http://www.h7.dion.ne.jp/~qemu-win/ and have previously compiled it
myself from the sources. (It's much more convenient to download it... good
work guys!)

I have been attempting to use Qemu with Windows95 (OSR1) and DOS. For
convenience I put together an install disk which is based off MS Lan
Manager. It's is handy to have LanManager working so that you do not need to
have the install files on an ISO. Before the pci option was introduced,
everything was working well. Now however, I have issues with the lan card
and graphics cards.

Although the lan card is reported as a Realtek RTL 8029, the NDIS2 drivers
that you can obtain from the realtek site
(http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloads1-3.aspx?Keyword=8029) are
unable to find the LAN card. Also, the diagnostic util they provide cannot
find it.

Another diagnostic tool from Invisible Soft
(http://www.invisiblesoft.com/invlan/support_8029.html) also fails to see

I attempted installing NDIS2 drivers for other cards, once again they fail.

When I install Windows 95, it also fails to recognise and use the card.
(This is with the driver for the 8029 that come with service pack 1 and also
with the drivers downloaded from Realtek site)

My questions here are:
        1. Is the emulation of the 8029 supposed to be complete enough that it
should be able to be recognised and used properly as an Realtek 8029? Or was
the goal only to emulate parts?
        2. Are there other drivers that anyone is aware of that will work 
with DOS and Win95?
        3. Is there any aim to make it work with Windows 95 and DOS as some 
would think them redundant :)

With regards to the Cirrus Logic emulation, again windows 95 fails to be
able to use the video card, despite drivers being installed. (one of the set
of drivers I installed was from

Is there something broken with windows 95 that people are aware of that
makes it fail with the PCI video card and network card?

Another problem I encounted with Windows 95 *sigh* was that it had problems
with the floppy drive. Basically you cannot read from it as it does not
detect a disk as being inserted.

None of these problems occur with the original version of Windows 98 I might

Can anyone offer any insight, or alternatively is there something I can do
to assist with resolving these issues? I noticed when I searched the
archives that the problems seem similar to those that had occurred with OS/2

Running it with the -isa command is an option... and maybe the best solution
for win95.
