qemu-system-ppc64 on T1040RDB booting ppce500

Hello,

 

I'm trying to run a VM on a T1040RDB freescale board, the full command I use to start the guest is as follows:

 

qemu-system-ppc64 -enable-kvm -nographic -m 512 -M ppce500 -kernel vmlinux -initrd rootfs.cpio.gz -append "root=/dev/ram rw loglevel=7 console=ttyS0,115200"

 

but as soon as I hit enter, the qemu process starts but no output is printed on the console. The same thing happens on my laptop.

 

I'm able to access the qemu monitor console from which all seems to be in order. I've tested different parameters and nothing seems to work.

 

I've also tried with different version of QEMU (2.2.0 and 2.4.5). Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong or how to fix this?

 

 

Regards,

 

Vincenzo Do
