I understand that it is difficult to maintain for someone not running
OSX, and I am okay with fixing it ourselves like in this case. Didn't
you propose to add a native Gtk+ frontend yourself?
([...] 64-bit OS X--but does that even exist today?).
It does exist, and I'm running on it. Mac OS X v10.4 had 64-bit
support for non-graphical apps, v10.5 added Cocoa support.
SDL 1.2.13 is a ppc+i386 Universal Binary only. It is a Mach-O
Framework and does not include an sdl-config tool, so it is not
detected by QEMU's configure. You would use it through -framework SDL
rather than `sdl-config --libs`. I have no further knowledge about SDL
on Mac OS X other than that it was not installed on my system. But in
order to extend QEMU to a real graphical frontend the choice is
certainly the native Cocoa API.
Originally I was using Q, a Cocoa frontend patched into QEMU 0.9.0
CVS. Shortly after we updated it for 0.9.1, they reorganized the
project for Q2 and imported some version of QEMU into their SVN tree,
decoupling Q from QEMU SVN trunk. Development seems to have stalled
So currently, QEMU's basic Cocoa frontend is the only way to use a
graphical QEMU on Mac OS X to my knowledge.
