I did that as well, but got the same errors - here's the version I'm running now on Fedora 26.

qemu-system-sparc --version
QEMU emulator version 2.10.50 (v2.10.0-991-gd147f7e815)

I heard on the TUHs mailing list that it was possible to emulate sparc
on qemu and further that you could run SunOS. So, I did the following:

brew install qemu - which got qemu on my mac

rounded up the sunos 4.1.4 install media and the sparcstation 5 version
2.15 boot prom

and then followed the directions (and a bunch of variations) at

When I got to the post-install reboot, the VM booted up to the point
where it was starting network services and then reported a bunch of,
"rpc.lockd: Cannot contact status monitor!" and hung. I thought maybe it
was environmental, but I got the same errors on Linux Mint 18 with qemu
1.7, 2.0, and 2.14 as well as on FreeBSD with qemu 2.8.1, so I'm asking
for help.

First question - is there a better/more up-to-date guide than what's on
the wiki (I googled but didn't find anything better)?

Second question - any idea why the error is happening or how to make it
stop (google returned a bunch of Sun notes saying stop and restart rpc,
but this isn't really helpful as it happens during boot and it hangs
without letting me make any changes)?

Third question - has anyone heard of this working on modern hardware and
software configurations (the Wiki article is pretty old and the few
videos I saw on youtube were Crunchbang - circa Ubuntu 8?

Any substantive help appreciated.
