I have tried what you told me.
1. Turn off fbdev support:
static bool enable_fbdev = *false*;
2. configure a serial console:
- add something like "*console=ttyS0, 9600n8*" to the grub menuentry
- add a start parameter to qemu when start the virtual machine "*-serial
- got a redirected device like "*char device redirected to /dev/pts/2*"
- see the vritual machine's kernel messages in a host console by typing
And stuck in dark but got the messages bellow:
saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned
[ ok ] Starting network connection manager: NetworkManager.
[ ok ] Starting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd.
The serial console messages also stop here, no other output.
I just don't know if I did the right thing, if I did something wrong, I
would be appreaciate if
you show me.
