Hi! Welcome to Haiku.
Well firstly, as a guy who runs qemu often, why invoke sudo? On Haiku, you don’t need it, and on Debian Gnu/Linux (which I’m seeing you’re using as a host) you also shouldn’t need it here. If it’s kvm acceleration you need, create a kvm group and add yourself to it – if your distro didn’t do that for you anyway. You shouldn’t need sudo unless you’re doing something like accessing raw volumes, such as -hdb /dev/sdc, for instance.
Now, the other thing is that you’re starting qemu in full ‘automatic’ with no options, like cpu, etc. That’s fine, but you will need to specify a few important options to it:
- -m 1G: While Haiku can get by with very little memory due to its excellent design, I usually give it plenty just in case I want to run a lot of applications inside a session. (The default amount, iirc, is 128 MB, which probably won’t get the 64-bit edition up.)
- –enable-kvm. Hint: There’s two dashes here. If you’ve got hardware acceleration with kernel virtualization support on your distro, use it.
- -boot d: If you’re booting from a CD-ROM, it’ll most likely guess this one like the other options, but this might just help.
Also, hrev52300 is not all that old. The current Nightly is 52302 as of this writing; the x64 Nightlies page is here.
