Ah - thank you! All is great - much appreciated.

Now I see where the output is going. I'd tried Ctrl-Alt-F1,2.
Sorry - I think this is (another) thing to add to the docs, since I didn't see it there.

Best wishes


P.S. WinXP + SP1 + SP2 now works almost flawlessly on Qemu. (Well, at least as well as Windows ever does!). So far, my only wishes would be:

* Mic input

* Support for Wheel-Mouse

* Option for higher screen res. (What about using VNC as the graphics driver?)

* Option for use of host devices (parport, ttyS0, usb...)
  This would be *really* cute - and I should imagine, really hard to do!

Dear All,

I've just started using QEMU - and, since this is my first post here, I'd like to begin by saying thank you very much.
Anyway, just a suggestion:

I think that the default for -monitor in graphical mode ought to be stdio. I don't know where "vc" actually goes, but when I launch qemu from a konsole (in kde), the monitor is unavailable, unless I add the option

-monitor stdio

This used to be the default (in fact, the only version available for the 
until 0.6.0

The default was made -monitor vc because in Windows stdio didn't work.
It only works in windows if you include windows specific code to attach a
console to the process ... which Fabrice choose not to include (but which is
in the windows port of qemu i believe). This is annoying for non-windows
users of qemu, but at least it is consistent across host OSes this way.

You need to do a 'Ctrl-Alt-1' or 'Ctrl-Alt-2' as I recall, to use the VC
