Compiling and patching qemu in Fedora14

Reference material:

There’s a slight change in the dependency files.

Anyway here’s what I did:


tar xvzf qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz

This statement means to extract verbosely with gzip on filename qemu-0.11.0.tar.gz.

cd qemu-0.11.0


patch -pl -i qemu-0.11.0-olive.patch

This means to patch the file and ignore white space and numbers.

You will need zlib-devel, ncurses, libpcap, and SDL library files to do the ./configure

yum install zlib-devel

yum install libpcap-devel

yum install ncurses-devel

yum install SDL-devel

Take note SDL must be capitalized!

./configure –target-list=i386-softmmu


make install
