Hi Vlad Lungu,

I am very glad to see that you have said that you have made 2.4.x mips
malta kernel running on qemu. That 's great!

I see your messages in qemu mailing list:

Can you send your 2.4.x patch to me , thanks very much!
I appreciate your action.

I know some of you will laugh, but:

- QEMU malta emulation is not really complete, to put it mildly
- the QEMU target is available only for Linux 2.6
- despite popular opinion, 2.4 ain't dead yet, at least in the embedded market

I have a port of the QEMU target for Linux (latest 2.4 kernel
on linux-mips.org), with NE2000 card working (in both BE and LE
Still rough at the edges, but it works on stock qemu-0.9.0 with -M mips.

If anyone is interested, I can send the patch by e-mail. I have no
idea if I can post attachments to the list(s), that's why it's not
