[SOLVED]Newbie Qemu/KVM need help


I’m trying to use QEMU for Mac OS because I have an assignment that requires it. I got pretty far, but after building qemu from source, even the basic launch commands don’t produce a video output when I start qemu.

Here is what I see when I try to launch a simple ubuntu iso.

The setup I followed is here

If there is info that’s missing from my post, don’t hesitate to tell me.

Thank you in advance for any help you guys can give me.

I added it to the Mac sub-forum and gave it the helpdesk tag.

If you notice the terminal output, it has a VNC server running on port 5902 of localhost. Try connecting to that. I believe the default configuration is to use VNC rather than open up a window.

There may be a -display flag you can pass it, but I don’t run mac, and I can’t find the mac-specific options from a cursory search.

It worked!
Well I mean the display works but now I can troubleshoot my setup.

Yeah I wanted to tag it but I couldn’t figure it out.

And I got it working. I was using the wrong iso for mac os.
