Re: QEMU?



Hi Daniel,

Partition: 2 'CDROM' 'Apple_HFS' st 10 size c88c
 ...
HFS volume

A rough guess is that the OFW emulation thinks that the filesystem is HFS. Apple ISO images use a 'hybrid HFS/ISO9660' format:
     http://developer.apple.com/technotes/fl/fl_36.html

 See the 'makehybrid' option at
http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/hdiutil.1.html

 ... and the "-hfs" option to mkisofs:
http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/man/cdrecord/mkisofs.8.html

FreeBSD/ppc CD's are built in src/release/powerpc/mkisoimages.sh with the following options:

mkisofs $bootable -r -hfs -part -no-desktop -hfs-volid $LABEL -l -J -L -o $NAME $*

You may want to look at Debian and see if there are any differences there. Hmmm, maybe we should be using the "-apple" option. Another unpleasant job would be to dig into QEMU's OFW emulation code (http://perso.magic.fr/l_indien/OpenHackWare/index.htm) and try and work out what is going on.

later,

Peter.
