Wow ! Works . Many thanks !

Will have to reorder my thoughts, because i had thought there had been a pup_sap6.sfs on the first partition, which would install to sda2 and sda2 would be an empty ext4 partition, which compressed would not use much space
and that would be the cause for the long update delay in Qemu .

Likely i would have detected it using an empty 4GB USB external flash device ( of course had none empty handy ) .

Googling for ' loader.bin ' i came up with this :

raspberrypi / firmware

Anyone knows what that raspberripi firmware git site is about ?

Hi 01micko,

Installed you slacko pet and libao-1.1.0-i486-1.txz into a clean frugal install of slacko-5.3.3.4g-SCSI.

When trying to run get this error message
Code:
qemu-system-arm: error while loading shared libraries: libaio.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


tried reinstalling libao-1.1.0-i486-1.txz again by default install then tried by extracting and installing still the same. looked for libaio.so.1, could not find file or sym link.

thanks

DC

@Karl Godt

The files in the first partition are mostly a mystery to me. All I know, is that files from there get loaded to the Arm SoC for processing. It works sort-of like a bios.

HI DC

Looks like qemu can't find kernel-qemu. Did you download it from jamesbond's link in the first post and place it in the same directory as raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.69.img? (or whichever image you use, I reckon Barry will have a new one shortly).

All you need in that dir is the image and the kernel-qemu. I also have just a file with the command which I paste into terminal because I'm lazy. Razz

HTH

Contents of file "pi_starting":
Code:
qemu-system-arm -M versatilepb -cpu arm1176 -hda raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.96.img -kernel kernel-qemu -m 256 -append "root=/dev/sda2" -serial stdio -redir tcp:2222::22

Can't believe I've only just seen this. Excellent thread on qemu.
I'm guessing most people who need one have a qemu, but this is a pet I made (def works in Slacko, for instance).

qemu pet
Edit Sorry I hadn't noticed that Micko has already posted a .pet!
oops.


This kernel zimage works well too (I think I got it from CNET).

Mark (antiloquax) has practically tried every programming language available and this is so early in our ability to run on ARM

Woof Woof Smile


Hi Lobster - I hadn't seen this. I will try to add some stuff to the wiki.
Now I have Python3 on SAP, I am ready fo anything!

I gave qemu a try with raspi-sd-4gb-sap6-5.102.img and it's working
pretty well.
I tried unsuccessfully to get a higher screen resolution, ended up at
the prompt and couldn't get back to the desktop.
I installed the devx and compiled links 2.7 (took a while) but it's
working good.
Anyway, had a bit of fun trying it out Smile

Yo fo [so to speak]
As an English teacher you can improve my use of the passive voice
spilling spelling mishtakes and so on. Wink

Experience in Qemu (and other processor emulators) puts us ahead of the hardware.
For example the Mips/Dragon Risc chip will become increasingly popular.

An Arm tablet and superphone running Puppy will be direct descendent's of our Raspberrian adventures.

So pleased Micko has actual hardware.
At the moment Puppi Sap is getting easier to run but still have to tread carefully.

Oops. I'm going to say that was a typo. There are some words I often spell wrong. Towel for instance (I'm always tempted to add an extra 'l'.

Another advantage of learning programming is that my typing is a bit more accurate - computers are rather unbending when it comes to SPG.
