Clockwork OS on QEMU


#1

I think this was promised during the Kickstarter but I can’t quite find the comment about it, would it be possible to give us some directions on how to run Clockwork OS on QEMU?

I can see that one of the partitions in the official images contains: boot.scr, *-clockworkpi-cpi3.dtb and uImage, which I believe are the boot script, the tree blob and the compressed kernel respectively, but I can’t quite get the QEMU command right with these. Some help would be really appreciated.

I tried so far:

qemu-system-arm -M vexpress-a9 -m 512 -kernel $PWD/uImage 

But I get a blank screen without anything, adding -append "console=ttyAMA0 and -serial stdio doesn’t get me any output in the console so I’m not sure where the kernel is crashing.

@guu I saw your reply on another thread: Running Clockwork OS in a Virtual Machine - How to?, maybe you could help me here? Or the only way is still using the Debian kernel?
