I'm working with the Unleashed core for Puppy Linux 3.01 as it turns out, the light distro I made works just fine when burned to a disk. But I wanted to test the ISO first using the command line ./allinoneqemu_linux /mnt/home/UNLEASHED/puppy-3.01-.iso QEMU's window came up but it didn't get very far.

From this:

./allinoneqemu_linux /mnt/home/UNLEASHED/puppy-3.01-.iso

To this:

./allinoneqemu_linux -m 256 -boot d \
-cdrom /mnt/home/UNLEASHED/puppy-3.01-.iso

The red backslash is NOT necessary, you can put it all on one line, I put it there for forum display to prevent possibility of confusing word wrapping.

The -m 256 gives more memory than the 128 default, but if you don't have 256 to spare, then eliminate the -m 256 switch from my example.

The main error in your command was not identifying the .iso file as a cdrom and qemu treated it as a virtual hard disk which would of course fail because it isn't a virtual hard disk.

Thank you, that works very nice, I never knew about the switches.
