|Emulation of Sam 460 using QEMU in development|
According to a mail on the QEMU-PPC mailing list Zoltan Balaton is working on an emulation of a Sam-460 using QEMU. In the first status report (middle of August) he described that AROS as well as MorphOS could boot, but finally failed due to different problems. Balaton could not test AmigaOS, because he does not own a copy of AmigaOS 4.1 besitzt.
The emulator QEMU emulates or virtualizes alot of computers or processors. If the host system has a suitable processor, QEMU does not have to emulate it - so Balaton's project could succeed in emulating Sam 460 operating systems under different PPC hardware - e.g. Apple-Hardware .
On a common Windows-PC, QEMU would have to emulate the PPC-CPU, but would not have to emulate the complex custom chip emulation, which is currently required to run AmigaOS 4 "Classic" under WinUAE. (cg) (Translation: dr)
