New release 4.6 which addresses the Windows DL, along with other fixes that were merged.

Hey (new to AUR arch linux in general) I get a error, that "Download URL not leading to microsoft CDN" when i try to create a windows 10 VM. Ubuntu 22.10 works just fine, just to add, so the program works and installed correctly Don't know if i missed a patch or something where it was fixed.

I am having an error while running macos-catalina. If qemu-audio-pa isn't installed, i get the error of audio: Unknown audio driver `pa'. Should this be made a Dependancy? I don't know if this is just an edge case or if other people are having this problem.

Coreutils, grep, procps, sed, and util-linux should not be dependencies since they are members (or dependency of members) of the base-devel group.

edk2-ovmf should not be a dependency since it's already required by qemu

Thanks @sekret. Looks like it's a new dependency - I've added it.

sekret commented on 2022-10-03 16:46 (UTC)

Please add socat as a dependency or at least as an optional dependency. Quickemu complaints about it missing with a Windows 11 installation. It's also listed as a dependency on the github page.

No problem. Thanks for quick fix. Maybe pinned comment about this issue would help. Something like: If there are any problems with missing dependencies install qemu-...

Sorry about that @wioo I've rolled it back to qemu.

This is a problem that started when the qemu package got split back in May. I've been receiving emails from people not being able to use quickemu because they choose the wrong dependency for qemu.

So I thought I'd change it to qemu-desktop, but that is of course also not right as you pointed out. Thanks :)

wioo commented on 2022-09-27 12:37 (UTC)

New dependency qemu-desktop is in conflict with qemu-full. Whats wrong with just qemu?

I just wanted to set up a macos monterey and here's the output I'm getting:

$ quickemu --vm macos-monterey.conf

Looks like qemu-ui-sdl is required here. All works fine after installing it.
