QNX Community QEMU™ Project overview#

QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer.

When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performances.

QEMU is based on SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer - that provides graphical output. In QNX you can use QEMU with SDL Photon or XFree86/X.Org build.

System requirements#

  • OS: QNX Neutrino 6.3.0 and higher
  • Processor: x86 family 500 MHz and faster
  • Memory: > 256 Mb
  • Video adapter: with 2D graphic acceleration in Photon support

Sound card (to listen sounds from guest machine) and CD/DVD drive to install OSes from optical.


To download latest build of QEMU you should go to Project Downloads page. You can also get an old build at

QEMU is based on SDL library but you don't need it because in svn builds SDL 1.2.13 is linked statically with QEMU.
