I'm trying to emulate a raspberry pi using an x86 system and qemu. I'm trying to launch it like:

$ qemu-system-arm -kernel ~/Downloads/kernel-qemu-4.19.50-buster -cpu arm1176 -m 256 -M versatilepb -serial stdio -append "root=/dev/sda2 rootfstype=ext4 rw" -hda ~/Downloads/2019-09-26-raspbian-buster-lite.img -show-cursor`

The kernel-qemu-4.19.50-buster I got from here while the raspbian-buster-lite.img is the regular image from raspbian (I also tried the above command but with 2019-09-26-raspbian-buster.img - which produces the same result)

All I get when I launch this command, is a black qemu window that reads "Guest has not initialized the display (yet)" and I'm wondering why this is the case...?
