Re: Upgrading from etch-m68k to unstable


if you want to test your upgrade process, I think it would be nice to
work in a chroot... and with qemu you can do that. It is not as mature
as aranym, but it is nice to play with it.

How to do ? Follow this:

create an etch-m68k system under /m68k using something like

sudo debootstrap --arch=m68k --foreign etch-m68k /m68k http://archive.debian.org/debian

then get my qemu m68k fork (based on the work of Andreas Schwab):

git clone git://gitorious.org/qemu-m68k/qemu-m68k.git

and build it:

cd qemu-m68k
./configure --target-list=m68k-linux-user --m68k-default-cpu=m68040 --static
sudo cp m68k-linux-user/qemu-m68K /m68k/usr/bin

sudo chroot /m68k
# uname -a
Linux aspire-one 2.6.38-10-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 15:05:41 UTC 2011 m68k GNU/Linux
# mount none /proc -t proc
# ps -f
root     26492  9209  0 18:21 ?        00:00:00 sudo chroot /m68k
root     26493 26492 23 18:21 ?        00:00:05 /usr/bin/qemu-m68k /bin/bash -i
root     26521 26493  0 18:22 ?        00:00:00 /usr/bin/qemu-m68k /bin/ps -f

And for the fun, I've a little program computing the bogomips as the
kernel startup does and guessing the emulated Mhz:

# ./bogomips 
Clocking:	33
BogoMips:	26.00
Calibration:	131072

(on a Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270   @ 1.60GHz)

I've no real internet access until mid of august, but I'll try to answer
to your questions, if any...
