Description Jesper Frickmann 2005-05-25 18:37:24 UTC
When I emerge qemu 0.6.1 or 0.7, the emerge completes, but qemu does not work. I
have tried the demo linux.img, but it only gives me "Error loading linux.img".
When I build qemu from sources, it works OK.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Emerge qemu
2. Download linux-test
3. qemu-i386 linux.img

Actual Results:  
Error loading linux.img

Expected Results:  
qemu should boot linux

When I build from sources, qemu works.

You did not post emerge --info output like you were instructed to when filing
the bug.
Comment 2 Jesper Frickmann 2005-05-26 17:18:59 UTC
Not only did I not read the instructions for posting bugs - I also did not read
the documentation for qemu carefully enough.

The ebuild works just fine; there is no bug.
