I also faced the same problem when trying to execute the 'yum install qemu' command. Error message appeared as below.
[root@localhost ~]# yum install qemu
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
Nothing to do
I am 100% sure that;
1) Downloaded the given 'therepos.zip', decompressed it and copied all the files to the '/etc/yum.repos.d/'.
2) The path is correct and the files were overwritten successfully.
3) I have no problem on the internet connection as I wrote this message via wireless.
For your information, I am using YDL 5.0.1 and I need help on solving this issue. Please.
i have been away for a while... hmm U may have already installed qemu. Type "qemu" w/o the "" in the terminal and tell me what's going on. And, slastrina how well it runs in win98? can u tell me in fps?
That would be awesome...but technically it will never be in simulation...only in emulation which is total different from emulation.
At least i hope Wine gets re-write for ppc units, but i don't think it would be much difference from now....the only good of running Wine is to get applications running without emulating the whole OS, like qemu..!
Yeap... first of all the low ram makes the performance going down...
Not only down but very down, because not only linux run on the system but also hypervisor is taking also some ram, leaving us a very low free amound of ram.
Second the Ps3 does not use 7 cores but 7 spe's instead. In contrast with normal core's the spe's doesn't have direct access to ram make them not so interdependent but as separate processing units, and that's why ps3 has this low price now.
I think hardware mods will have to wait much longer coz, we have software prbs to solve, and it will bevery hard to for example, increasing the ram by swaping chips.. Enjoy!
