Default wip pkgsrc

hi, all!

I'm using NetBSD amd64. few days ago I needed emulate vmdk virtual image ubuntu with maemo development environment. I successfully build qemu from pkgsrc, but all what I've got was a black screen with a blink cursor. (if I created new qemu image and tried to boot debian net install iso, I've got a start debian install menu, but after selection any menu item it resulted with black screen with blink cursor too).

qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -hda maemo.vmdk -boot d loading my cpu at 60%-80% and nothing else. when I tried to convert vmdk image to qcow2 I've got an error with -O option.

virtualbox from wip stoped build with error.
sure, I can boot to the linux system, but maybe someone had a success story using NetBSD as host system for emulating hardware with qemu or another tools?

NetBSD includes Xen dom0 support. Qemi probably works without acceleration. FreeBSD has jails, VirtualBOX and BHyVe in works. Long story short if you need production level virtualizatio I would go with SmartOS or RedHat and KVM.
