Re: [Qemu-devel] booting linux 2.6 in qemu-system-ppc

Note that the Open-Firmware frame-buffer support is broken in many 2.6
kernels (I mean on real Macs)

How so ?

Well, in Fedora Core 4 test 3 (kernels 2.6.11.* and 2.6.12-rc*):
video switching at boot from yaboot with Open Firmware to Tux with
scrolling VGA text is problematic, and switching video from X11 to
VGA-style text virtual consoles does not work at all on my Mac mini.
[On the same hardware, Mac OS X has no problems at all.]  Perhaps
this is just a fumbled handoff _from_ Open Firmware video to direct
video on the hardware, but "support" certainly includes that.
