The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Linaro QEMU 2011.06.
Linaro QEMU 2011.06 is the latest monthly release of qemu-linaro. Based off upstream (trunk) QEMU, it includes a number of ARM-focused bug fixes and enhancements.
This release introduces two new features; these are still experimental so please report any issues: - A model of the Gumstix Overo board; this is an OMAP3 based system similar to Beagle but with the advantage of having supported onboard ethernet. - USB keyboard and mouse support, if your kernel includes support for the OMAP3 OHCI controller (not just EHCI). Try adding "-device usb-kbd -device usb-mouse" to your QEMU command line for Beagle or Overo models.
Other interesting changes include: - A fix for the lack of graphics output on the Beagle model when running the Linaro 11.05 final release image - Suppression of the "Bad register 0x000000f8" warnings provoked by the Linaro 11.05 final release kernels - As usual, various minor correctness fixes and other upstream changes
Known issues: - The beagle and beaglexm models still do not support USB networking - There are some gcc 4.6 warnings about "variable set but not used" which have not yet been resolved; Ubuntu Oneiric's gcc makes these non-fatal, but if you're building with an upstream gcc 4.6 you may need to add the "--disable-werror" option to configure
