Is a porting of qemu to OS4 possible?

Or an old version, for example 2.0 as in Haiku.
While that would be nice, I don't think it's possible to get kvm.
But an x86 emulator would be enough.
For now there are only bochs

Anything is possible if you have the right people working on it, and is willing to spend the time, even sometimes even the wrong people get something done, often is a question of being willing to try, and while you might not be 100% successful, the attempt in the self can be educational.

Then there's PCem, which would be an interesting alternative to DOSBOx, because it also supports newer stuff developed for Windows. I have no idea how easy it would be to port it to AmigaOS 4.

I do not have the skill to execute a porting like this.
Otherwise, I would have already done and distributed it.

On Linux, it is more simple to resolve the dependencies.
Of the canonical process:
./configure
make
make install.

But in AOS4 are request more skills.

PCtask is written for 68k and is unstable. PCX is same.
Bochs is a configuration tedious.

Qemu is the best emulator

Do we have Qt yet for AOS4? Or GTK...

We have a relative stable port of Qt (4.7.0) made by Alfkil

Thanks. I am finding it hard to find the massive thread about Qt. It ended up being a long talk about how our Shared Objects and elf.library were not working fine. I cannot remember if that was a thread on Qt, but I know that alfkil was working on it. Was that the Qt thread?

QEmu can come useful for some machines emulation, for example PPC Macintosh. But for PC, DOSBox with JIT is very good already (old X86 machines emulation).

Even if QEmu is ported to AmigaOS, it will lack the speed of DOSBox! DOSBox has some endian troubles which I wrote about in the DOSBox thread, but most of the games work with excellent speed.

If you want many machines emulated, better look and try to port the latest version of MAME, which emulates PCs as well. I see it is still being backported to Windows XP (32-bit), so Amiga port is doable.

Windows 3.11 runs fine on DOSBox-JIT. Here is me installing it on X5000




You will also need to install audio drivers for proper gaming:




Windows 95 starts under DOSBox-JIT, but colors are not okay and freezes sometimes.




I think Windows 98 is possible too. I am not that experienced with Windows to debug where is the issue with these OSes. Probably some special drivers may fix the issues.

Long time ago I was able to run OpenGEM 6 and some other OSes under DOSBox, but it was more for curiosity, than for real usage.

Yes DOSBox works great, but it stops at the end era of MS-DOS so to 1997 - 1998. To go forward with PC emulation and have support for some newer software at a satisfactory speed we must have a JIT-enabled emulator that can run at least Windows 95 without problems.

@drHirudo thanks, I use dosbox for msdos gaming, and with the freedos distribution is possible to execute many applications like browser, office, and more.
I suggest freedos because it exceeds the limits of msdos,
with super cow powers of the open source.

I would like to run others OS
