Hi list,

This is borderling off-topic: I'm using qemu under Debian to
try to run the latest Fedora 64-bit .iso.
qemu-system-x86_64 --enable-kvm -cdrom
Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso -m 512 linux.img

Fedora boots, the spinner-pointer runs, and eventually the
system hangs showing a monitor logo and the message "Please ask the administrator for assistance."

I'd like to do some testing in a virtual machine.
Wonder if anyone has suggestions to get a better result.

I gave up on qemu a long time ago, and switched to Virtualbox for all
my VM needs.

that seemed an interesting project. so I installed virtualbox on jessie from upstream, not the Debian packages. went without a hitch. booted Fedora 18 live. ok. even managed to install google-chrome-beta. but flashpalyer crashes :-(
