Sub_title: A new fast lightwieght GTK frontend for the qemu virtualization program
 

This program is in development, and when the first version is released, don't expect it to work as good as the finished program. If you have any ideas for features or comments, please post them. Thanks

I made a really dumb user interface for dosemu. I will explain a few things I picked up while doing that.

I think qemu can do the same sort of things with serial and printer ports as dosemu. The issue often comes up of a configuration working and then the serial or printer that it depended on not being in the system the next time. I found that the best path was to keep the settings that could be kept and force the dialog up with those as defaults.

I found that a very simple GUI that had basically "configure" and "run" buttons and little else was good. There is no point rendering the whole GUI if all is well. You always want the user to see the "configure" button so that there is no mystery about what to do if all is not as they want it.

Hi,
I am using fatdog64-630 and recently installed KVM-qemu to run win7 and precise puppy 5.7.1.
I liked the GUI mikeb showed.
I just have two suggestions.
1) If possible adding an option to enter host folder to be shared with guest.
2) also just some blank space to physically add some command line options for advance users.
Thanks in advance.

1....hmm never looked into that ...perhaps my qemu is too old when I wrote this. I got NFS working and did include a samba option.
2......yes good idea.... I use it for testing rather than running full time virtual systems so my needs are a little simpler (eg no usb)

pentium44 was working on this...I just was giving a 'heads up' but thanks for the suggestions

It would also be nice to be able to put a floppy image into qemu. I think it handles floppies.

It might but I don't as I lobbed those unreliable beasties years ago

Does make testing a little awkward. Very Happy

If pentium44 is not picking this up perhaps someone else can....

Hi mikeb,
I am using Fatdog64 as host, it has KVM support built in kernel, I have installed qemu-1.5.3-arm-x86_64-622.pet from Fatdog's package manager. I usually run Qemu with command
Code:
# qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 1024 -boot d -cdrom /aufs/devsave/LinuxTools/Fatdog_precise.iso -hda /aufs/devsave/vHDD.img

When I ran your GUI script it runs OK, I can see the GUI but in terminal it said
Code:
# ls
qemu-1.5.3-arm-x86_64-622.pet  qemu-gui.zip  qemu_nim
# ./qemu_nim
FATAL: Module kqemu not found.

And when I clicked on "Run Qemu" it said
Code:
sh: line 19: qemu: command not found

Please tell me what I need to change in your GUI code to make it work.
Thanks in advance...

Ok getting up to speed on this... here is a quick hack to test with though there will be refinements and additions happening later.
