The Emulation debugging technologies that i was talking about at the
meeting are free to download at the following links
QEMU is a generic and open source processor emulator which achieves a
good emulation speed by using dynamic translation.
QEMU has two operating modes:
* *Full system emulation*. In this mode, QEMU emulates a full system
(for example a PC), including a processor and various
peripherials. It can be used to launch different Operating Systems
without rebooting the PC or to debug system code.
* *User mode emulation* (Linux host only). In this mode, QEMU can
launch Linux processes compiled for one CPU on another CPU.
An optional proprietary QEMU Accelerator Module
<http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/qemu-accel.html> is available to
optimize the case where a PC is emulated on a PC. This module enables
QEMU to run most of the target application code directly on the host
processor to achieve near native performance.
The supported host and target CPUs are listed in the status page
<http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/status.html>. For full system
emulation, the supported Operating Systems are listed here
Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator
written in C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes
emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS.
Currently, Bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium
Pro or AMD64 CPU, including optional MMX, SSE, SSE2 and 3DNow! instructions.
Good Day, Good Luck, Good ... whatever else.
