Juergen: many thanks  :)

To the ml:
I also plan to ask both www.sunfreeware.com and SUNW\'s Companion CD department.
It would help Solaris to compete against VMware.

Good night,

QEMU for Solaris - FAST! Open Source Cross Platform CPU-Emulator

General Introduction to QEMU


QEMU is a FAST! processor emulator using dynamic translation to achieve good 
emulation speed.

QEMU has two operating modes:

1. Full system emulation. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system (for 
example a PC), including a processor and various peripherials. It can be used 
to launch different Operating Systems without rebooting the PC or to debug 
system code.

2. User mode emulation (Linux host only). In this mode, QEMU can launch Linux 
processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU. It can be used to launch the 
Wine Windows API emulator (http://www.winehq.org) or to ease cross-compilation 
and cross-debugging.

As QEMU requires no host kernel driver to run, it is very safe and easy to use.

For system emulation, the following hardware targets are supported:

* PC (x86 processor)

* PREP (PowerPC processor)

* PowerMac (PowerPC processor, in progress)

For user emulation, x86, PowerPC, ARM, and SPARC CPUs are supported.

Please be sure to visit http://www.bellard.com/qemu for further instructions.

Download open source QEMU 0.6.0 prebuilt for Solaris 9/10 x86. Screenshots are 
available as well.
