fast processor emulator
QEMU is a fast processor emulator: currently the package supports
ARM, CRIS, i386, M68k (ColdFire), MicroBlaze, MIPS, PowerPC, SH4,
SPARC and x86-64 emulation. By using dynamic translation it achieves
reasonable speed while being easy to port on new host CPUs. QEMU has
two operating modes:
* User mode emulation: QEMU can launch Linux processes compiled for
one CPU on another CPU.
* Full system emulation: QEMU emulates a full system, including a
processor and various peripherals. It enables easier testing and
debugging of system code. It can also be used to provide virtual
hosting of several virtual machines on a single server.
As QEMU requires no host kernel patches to run, it is very safe and
easy to use.
This package is a metapackage depending on all qemu-related packages.
