Embedded Xinu has been ported to the MIPSel emulation environment provided by QEMU. This provides an easy way to run a basic Embedded Xinu environment on a RISC architecture without devoting "real" hardware.
Compile Embedded Xinu with
PLATFORM=qemu-mipsel. This will produce the file
xinu.boot in the
qemu-system-mipsel -M mips -m 16M -kernel xinu.boot -nographic
The qemu-mipsel platform does not yet support networking.
