Well, my OS fetishism project has been neglected recently so now, just before bed I started qemu up with fedora. Yes I’ve just had some rotten experiences with it, but that was trying to make a desktop out of it. Having it around just for the build environment is fine and what it’s for. I’ve become a little concerned that recent distro’s like fedora and ubutnu are more glorified Gnome development distro’s rather than desktop distros, but oh well. A debate for another day.
Tip: Using `qemu -monitor stdio` qemu gives you a console while it is running so you can unmount and remount the “cd drive”, or in my case, the four fedora isos ((qemu) change cdrom cd/FC4-i386-disc2.iso).
