Solaris/OpenSolaris

Guest Guest bitness Host version Host cpu Host bitness Status Comments
Solaris 10 U1 32 kvm-12 Intel 64 Works later releases will detect the CPU is 64 bit capable and try to default to run a 64 bit kernel and fail, for those you have to override Solaris autodetection by adding "kernel/unix" to the kernel multiboot entry in GRUB
Solaris 10 U3 64 kvm-58 + patch Intel 64 Works needs additional patch to kvm for kvm kernel longmode
Nexenta Core 1.0 64 kvm-61 Intel 64 Works needs additional patch to kvm for kvm kernel longmode. Use -m 512 -net nic,model=e1000 (or any other than the default rtl adapter)

FreeDOS 1.0 32 kvm-12/14 Intel 64 Work(ish) Can only be installed from live CD by disabling kvm and using qemu only. Upper memory management (himem.exe) crashed kvm. Some other drivers do so as well. Step through booting using F8 to determine which. DOS is confined to the lower 640K of memory. See bug 1666308.
