I'm desperately trying to get a MIPS emulator running Linux, and while
I've managed to get gxemul and (I think) qemu running, I can't for the
life of me get them to (1) output anything or (2) use an initrd.
Can anyone post some instructions and, perhaps, a .config for 2.6.16 so
I can get some output like kernel boot messages and a login screen?
I've got gxemul emulating code and running a kernel, which I can test by
stopping emulation and stepping the code. Qemu seems to boot my
qemu-specific kernel but I get no output and qemu appears to hang (won't
take keyboard input). I can't seem to get either emulator to load my
initrd, but that doesn't really matter at this stage since I can't see
anything anyway (I have no idea how to using gxemul, and qemu refuses to
load the image).
Something that could emulate a NEC VR41xx chip would be icing on the
cake, but I'll take anything I can get at this stage.
Many thanks in advance,
