Damn, I wouldn't know how to build/install that Qemu since I'm using Gentoo to test ARM64 + KVM. Is there no way we can test the virtio-ramfb device using a normal version of Qemu coupled with pflash/bios files and/or a device drivers disk? Here's how I built the official Qemu inside Ubuntu:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
sudo apt-get install libpixman-1-dev
sudo apt-get install libpixman-1-0
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-dev
sudo apt-get install autoconf
make a new subdirectory named build and cd to that dir
../configure --disable-vnc --enable-sdl --with-sdlabi=2.0
sudo make
sudo make install
Perhaps some of these commands would work on Gentoo, and I heard it has most of the dev modules already installed. What might the process be for the custom Qemu for a novice Linux user like me? I could ask on the Gentoo forum. These are the source files, right?

There's also an ARM64 OpenSUSE with KVM enabled that can now also be installed on the RPi3/B+ in a more simpler fashion to before using UEFI:

Perhaps OpenSUSE would be better suited than Gentoo for installing the aforementioned custom Qemu for testing KVM?

Last night, they also got Windows 10 on ARM working natively on the RPi3/B+! I am awaiting an idiot's guide in the form of a video that will hopefully explain the entire process via that UEFI firmware - making life a lot easier for Pi owners.

Does anyone know how to compile/use these VirtIO drivers with qemu-system-aarch64 and whether it solves the VGA/KVM issues?
"You are welcomed to check the branch: https://github.com/virtio-win/kvm-guest ... tree/arm64

Instructions for build machine (using community edition of VS2017):
https://github.com/virtio-win/kvm-guest ... tudio-2017

Soon will be integrated to master and we will distribute the binaries.

Best regards,
Yan."

Also, could the above be applied to the Samsung S8?

With the recent developments over getting 10 to run on the Pi ( http://pi64.win/ ) I wonder if the Server build is worth taking another look at...

For anyone interested still, this apparently can be run on the new 4Gb Raspberry Pi 4 under Qemu at `full cpu speed`. See above for where to find out more. Shame there aren't more Server ARM64 builds around.

There are Client ARM64 builds. You can install them too.
