QEMU Installation Attempt 1.0

Okay, the VMWare Server installation attempt is too suck to report. I can't barely do anything hardcore. It just need to run a script and everything is served. Man! How educating! :)

Now, I'm trying to do more challenging stuff:

QEMU Installation Attempt! (Yeah, sounds cool...)

Still, the platform is that wrecked IBM XSeries 225, with specs:
1. 2 pocessors:Intel Xeon 3,06 GHz with HT. (It reads 4 in GNU/Linux...) B-)
2. 2048 MB memory, with ECC.
3. Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5703X Gigabit Ethernet (rev 02)! (We play Gigs now, no more MBps) B-)
4. Dapper plain install.

Prepare Stuff

Ok, the needed thing to do is download everything needed. Go to QEMU's web and download:

1. QEMU source (if you hardcore enough)
2. QEMU precompiled i386 build (this is the safest, do this kids!)
3. KQemu source package (for great experience)

Prepare Your System

Do the installation:
# sudo apt-get install bridge-utils linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential libsdl1.2debian-all checkinstall

*> bridge-utils is for bridging your network. [Human Language: is to make all of your guest OSes use your ethernet card to connect to outside world, e.g. LAN, Internet]
*> build-essential is for compiling everything.
*> linux-headers is for compiling kqemu kernel module.
*> libsdl1.2debian-all is for your qemu to runs well.
*> checkinstall is not needed. :-P

Install Your QEMU

First, just compile your kqemu package, do the three magic dance (./configure, make, make install).

# tar xvfz $YOUR_DOWNLOAD_DIRECTORY/kqemu-1.3.0pre9.tar.gz
# cd kqemu-1.3.0pre9
# ./configure && make && sudo make install

Second, as root (use sudo) tar your safe tarballs from QEMU's web. The following will install your qemu in /usr/local directory

# sudo tar xvfz $YOUR_DOWNLOAD_DIRECTORY/qemu-0.8.2-i386.tar.gz -C /
