I compiled a Linux by doing
make menuconfig then
make and now I have compiled the most recent version of Linux. How can I load the kernel into QEMU?
From qemu's help:
Linux/Multiboot boot specific: -kernel bzImage use 'bzImage' as kernel image -append cmdline use 'cmdline' as kernel command line -initrd file use 'file' as initial ram disk -dtb file use 'file' as device tree image
A quick test here using Arch's kernel/initrd (
qemu -kernel /boot/vmlinuz-linux -initrd /boot/initramfs-linux.img) worked (dropped me into a recovery shell since I didn't provide a root device).
