You are trying to virtualize SPARC on x86 so you need qemu-system-sparc. 
qemu-sparc would be for a user-mode emulation on a SPARC processor. I've done 
this before on CentOS 7 and it should definitely be possible to install 
qemu-system-sparc. yum should not have a problem figuring out the dependencies 
- make sure you're all up to date and don't have any broken packages.

I installed CentOS 7.6 then installed all things QEMU on my machine. I have

a SPARC image I need to bringing up in a VM. I've been using


$ qemu-system-sparc -m 256 -hda solaris_v2-qemu_v2.2.0.disk -nographic

-bios ./openbios-sparc32

This is on a box on which I have Fedora-30 installed.

Can I use *qemu-sparc* to bring up my Solaris image:

*solaris_v2-qemu_v2.2.0.disk* ?

If so, how?

BTW, *qemu-sparc* come with (on CentOS 7.6):

$ sudo yum install qemu*

*PS> I've tried to install qemu-system-sparc on my CentOS box but ended up

in a never-ending whack-a-mole game of dependencies.*
