macOS GUI frontend for QEMU?

How close are we to a GUI frontend for QEMU that will be easy to use and allow us to avoid using the Terminal? If there's one already, are there any caveats about its use? If there are several options available, is there a GUI frontend that you can recommend?

HVF (hypervisor framework) support in Big Sur

Hi. Can anyone explain what practical advantages, if any, would derive from adding -accel=hvf to the qemu launch command line? I understand that, for this work in Big Sur, the qemu executable must be codesigned. Can anyone elaborate?

Re: Option request - window title

Then it would be nice if the VMs name would be used for the window title, without the need to edit the prefs file. But I doubt that is possible. That would probably be the best possible solution, IMHO. Let the virtual disk's name determine the name of the SheepShaver window running the relevant ver...

Re: Qemu package and guide for OSX available

^My bad. I don't know what happened, but it does indeed work. I had used my 5.0 "MacOS922_Launch.command" which contained the -rtc parameter and refused to launch (I don't recall what the specific error message was, but it was related to "localtime"), so I removed it and it final...

Re: Qemu package and guide for OSX available

I've just installed the latest 5.2 experimental build of QEMU. It appears that "-rtc base=localtime" no longer works. Is there an equivalent parameter that will allow the guest MacOS 9.2.2 virtual machine to show the correct time?

Re: Qemu package and guide for OSX available

Classic works within Tiger I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but, just in case, at least the latest experimental Qemu build (5.0, with screamer) for macOS can run Classic within its emulation of Mac OS X Tiger. The first time I tried this, a couple of years ago, with an earlier versio...

Qemu for ARM hosts

I've looked for information, but couldn't get a clear picture on how good Qemu might be in virtualizing or emulating non-ARM guest operating systems on Apple Silicon ARM. If VMware and Parallels do not enter the fray of Intel emulation under ARM, our only choice for running things like OS X Tiger, O...

Re: GSOC qemu Boot Mac OS >= 8.5 on PowerPC system

Graphics acceleration?

I'm not sure I've understood some of the latest posts correctly. Has graphics acceleration been achieved on Qemu for OS X guests (like, say, Tiger)? If so, can Front Row run on such virtual machines? If it doesn't work yet, will that goal be achievable in the near future?

Time for troubleshooting: Open a terminal, enter "cd /dev" use "ls" to see whether the tap devices tap0 up to tap15 are present in the folder. If not, there is an issue with the installation of tuntaposx. I have no clear idea yet how to fix that. If they are there, continue. Man...

Yes, I did. Do the txt files require any particular permissions (such as belonging to root/wheel, et cetera? Should they have a "command" extension instead of "txt"?
