Run IBM OS/2 on Android using Limbo PC Emulator

I just noticed on social networks this YouTube Video.
- Run IBM OS/2 on Android using Limbo PC Emulator

The author doesn't not seems experienced with OS/2, but it is interesting that he experimented doing this.

Limbo PC Emulator is based in QEMU.


Hi Martin,

Interesting I might try something like that on one of my tablets.

Another point, it would be nice if we managed to get an updated version of QEMU that runs on OS/2 - the old version doesn't like my new hardware.

Dave Yeo:
I just took a quick look at the latest QEMU, it would take work getting it to compile. For example, the configure script is hand written by Fabrice Bellard, so probably not too different from FFmpeg's configure but definitely no OS/2 support currently.
Perhaps if I get bored, I'll see if I can get it to compile, but right off, running configure dies with "ERROR: main directory cannot contain spaces nor colons" so it doesn't like that our sh's PWD returns the drive letter along with the current directory.
Guess the first step would be to find the patches that were used for the last port.

Hi Dave,

It would be good if you did manage to port QEMU I could then stop having several computers running at once ;)

There are the zip files for the version that used to work for me on  it has a patches dir but since it is from 2009 I don't know if they would be of any use with the present version.
